Parking Division Office Information
Due to the COVID-19 virus precautionary measures, the Parking Division main office is currently closed to all public walk-in services. We anticipate additional service adjustments once the department re-opens to the public with additional details to be determined.
Staff will be present to address calls and emails occurring during typical office hours of 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday - Friday. Staff will return calls and emails in the order they are received, and as quickly as possible. Please be patient as your questions are important to us.
Some limited exceptions for in-office services may be possible during the closure. These instances will be pre-determined by staff for specific services and will require an appointment and calling in advance of arrival. These processes have been developed to encourage safety for everyone during these exchanges.
When the offices re-open, all services will require an appointment and we will have a limited number of appointments available per day. NO WALK INS WILL BE ALLOWED, THEY WILL BE TURNED AWAY.

As a reminder, it is safest to remain home, but if you are required to leave your home, it is recommended to wear a cloth face cover as an additional tool to prevent additional spreading of the virus.
