The person claiming the vehicle must show a registration card for the vehicle and a picture ID at the Parking Office. Cash only is accepted and a receipt is issued.

Vehicles immobilized more than 24 hours may be towed away and/or additional penalties will be assessed to the owner for illegal parking for each day the vehicle remains unclaimed in the amount of $20/day. If towed the Towing Policy must be followed to retrieve a vehicle.
