The first appeal must be within 15 days of 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 - or - 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 complete the parking ticket appeal form and submit it to the Greeley Municipal Court Clerk's office.
