MAKE A PAYMENT You will need to know your citation number(s) and amount(s). Fee Schedule for GovPayNet.
Before learning more about parking rules, permits and parking citations, here are a few important definitions.
- Vehicle Registration Number -- a vehicle's license plate number.
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) -- the number that car manufacturers stamp on a vehicle. The VIN number may be located on the driver's side door or on the driver's side windshield at the corner base of the dashboard.
- Registration Suspended -- a vehicle's registration is generally considered suspended if there are unpaid parking citations, if a vehicle has not undergone a required emissions check or if a vehicle's plates have not been properly paid for. There may be some other extenuating circumstances in which a vehicle's registration is suspended.
- Parking Line -- number you should call to receive overnight parking permission (414)744-3444. Please read further to see if you qualify for overnight parking.
