New Parking Violations Bureau Decriminalizes Parking Infractions and provides Hearing Examiner to oversee appeals process.
In accordance with City Council’s approval of the establishment of a new Parking Violations Bureau and hiring of a Hearing Examiner, the City of South Euclid Police Department will begin the re-issuance of Parking Tickets on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at midnight.
The Police Department suspended the issuance of parking tickets in May 2012 pending City Council’s determination of a new procedure for paying fines and challenging parking tickets. On September 10, 2012 South Euclid City Council approved legislation creating a Parking Violations Bureau, decriminalizing parking tickets and making infractions civil offenses.
As a component of the establishment of the Parking Violations Bureau, City Council has appointed a Hearing Examiner who will hear and rule on any challenges to parking tickets. On January 14, 2013 City Council appointed Karrie Howard as the City’s Parking Examiner and Keisha Hughes as an alternate. Both Mr. Howard and Ms. Hughes are South Euclid residents and attorneys-at-law.
Parking Ticket violations include: overnight parking, fire lane violations, snow bans, parking across sidewalks and on front lawns, and parking in disabled parking zones without a valid permit.
