Parking Enforcement and Penalties

Parking permit and contract/hourly sales revenue is used to pay for the cost of parking at St. Thomas, including lot maintenance, repair, snow removal, construction and administration.

Enforcement of parking rules and regulations is done to provide fair and equal parking for those who have purchased a parking permit. The fact that a person parks in violation of any law, policy or regulation and does not receive a citation does not mean that the law, policy, or regulations is no longer in effect. Using emergency flashers does not allow drivers to illegally park their vehicles, particularly in handicap spaces, fire lanes, at yellow curbs, etc.
