  • Parking Enforcement (Ticket Writing and Towing) is returning to a normal rate of patrol, expanding from the centralized downtown area:  
    • Enforcement hours for Ticket Writing’s field staff: 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Saturday; 7 a.m. -7 p.m., Sunday. This change will allow full field coverage and improve the response time to all requests for enforcement.  
    • Enforcement hours for Towing remains 24/7
    • Areas of enforcement will be extended citywide to ensure that the City is providing fair and consistent parking enforcement throughout the city.   
    • Uniformed enforcement of parking regulations will be reinstated to ensure curb turnover in high-traffic areas where enforcement is required to regulate Freight/Loading Zones, Cab Stands/Bus Zones and Passenger Zones. 
    • These enforcement measures are also being requested by businesses and residents.

  • Booting to return to normal enforcement: 
    • Areas of enforcement will be extended citywide to ensure that the City is providing consistent delinquent collections for parking/traffic camera fines and fees throughout the city. Booting enforcement will also encourage compliance with the City’s parking laws and promote curb turnover. 
    • Operating hours:
      • 8 a.m.- 6 p.m. – Booting enforcement and assisted releases 
      • 8 a.m.- 10 p.m. – Lot attendant on duty to accept self-released boots
