Appeal a Parking Citation

If you believe that you have received a citation in error you can appeal your ticket online using our parking portal or in person at the Municipal Court 1001 11th Ave, Greeley CO. Please note that court staff cannot negotiate parking tickets.

Appeal a Citation

The first appeal must be within 15 days of the citation, and will be reviewed by Parking Services staff. During the appeal process, your ticket will be held in abeyance (state of suspension, frozen) until there is a ruling on the appeal. If the appeal is approved the ticket is dismissed. If the appeal is denied the outstanding fine must be paid within 7 days of the appeal determination.

A second appeal can be filed at this time to the City Parking Referee. If the parking referee approves the second appeal the ticket will be dismissed. If the second appeal is denied the applicant must pay the outstanding fines within 30 days of the appeal determination.

If you wish to appeal a parking ticket in person, please print and complete the parking appeal form and submit it to the Court Clerk's office.

How We Enforce

grpd-license-plate-recognition-05-resizeParking is enforced using license plate recognition software. The software is paired with license plate readers that are attached to the City's parking services vehicles.

If the same license plate is detected in an area for over two hours without payment or in a permit area without a permit, the system will issue a ticket. 

Notices and Immobilization 

If payment is not received within 30 days of a citation a letter is sent to the registered vehicle owner notifying them of the amount due. Immobilization may occur after 60 days of nonpayment regardless of whether the vehicle is parked legally at the time. A $50 immobilization fee will be applied to the outstanding permit fines. 

If a vehicle has been added to the City scofflaw list, it will be immobilized if the vehicle license plate is scanned. An immobilization device is placed on the vehicle until the full amount owed is paid. If arrangements to remove the device are not made within 72 hours, the car may be impounded and the vehicle owner will be responsible for towing and storage fees in addition to the unpaid citation and immobilization fee. 

The City of Greeley uses an immobilization device called the barnacle. Visit the barnacle website to learn more about how it works. 

Tampering with an immobilization device is a misdemeanor offense.
