The City of Naperville will increase its fines for all parking violations, including street parking around North Central’s campus, starting Monday, Jan. 9.
At that time, the minimum fine for parking regulation violations will become $50 with a compromise fine of $25 when the citation is paid within 15 days from the date the citation is issued. The previous fine was $30 with a compromise fine of $15.
Parking regulations on most streets around campus have four-hour limits. Violations of this time limit that receive citations will be assessed the increased fee.
For fire lane parking prohibition violations, the minimum fine will be $100 with a compromise fine of $60 when the citation is paid within 15 days from the date the citation is issued. The previous fine was $50 with a compromise fine of $30. The fine for disability (handicap) parking violations will remain at $250. In addition, violations related to the Washington Street parking bans that are in effect during the morning hours of 6 to 8:30 a.m. and evening hours of 4 to 7 p.m. will remain at $50. There is no compromise payment in these instances.
At its Dec. 6, 2011, meeting, Naperville's City Council voted to increase the fines associated with parking citations within the city. The last parking fine increase by the City Council was in November 1999. Parking citations issued prior to the new fine structure will not be affected by this increase.
