PARKING FEES

Due to a recent U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled chalking tires a violation of the 4th Amendment, the Virginia Police Department will begin using a new electronic handheld parking citation device on 11-01-2019.

 

The handheld machine generates the ticket immediately with a picture of the vehicle and prints it on a piece of polyvinyl paper that is placed on the vehicle in violation. The parking tickets will have a different look and be visibly smaller than the older ones.  

 

However, do not be surprised if you occasionally see a handwritten citation placed on your vehicle. The police officers will still have the option to write violations when necessary.

 

Effective October 1, the parking violations were modified as shown below:

FEES – $20.00
Expired Meter
Parked Against Traffic
Parked in Alley                  
Overtime Parking

If any parking ticket fee or fine is not paid after twenty (20) days, an additional fee of $40.00 will be added to the initial fine or fee.

A friendly reminder that under Virginia City Ordinance 9.99 & 9.13; after a third or subsequent parking violation, unpaid parking citations, within a 12-month period, the police department can tow and impound a vehicle. The vehicle owner is then responsible for tow fees and a $20 per day storage fee.
