Report Parking Problem


​​Let us know if you see a parking problem. You can make reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the online form below or sending an email. If you want to talk to a person, you can call during regular business hours.

Common parking problems

Common parking problems include:

  • Broken meters
  • Malfunctioning pay stations
  • Driveways blocked by a vehicle
  • Improperly parked car

Abandoned vehicles and parking issues outside the downtown area should be reported online.

​Reporting key information

The following information is helpful for our staff to respond and resolve parking problems quickly.

  • Vehicle license plate number
  • Vehicle description
  • Location of parking concern
  • Description of problem

Once a meter becomes broken, jammed, or unable to accept payment, the parking space becomes a “no parking zone” and must remain open for staff to repair. If a pay station becomes inoperable, please use the nearest working pay station.​

Online Parking Report Form

Once your online report is submitted, you will receive a case number. Keep this case number for future reference.
