Dispute Your Citation

You may elect to set a court date for a hearing to dispute your citation. Court dates cannot be arranged by telephone or via the Internet. To set a hearing date, you must appear in person at the Office of Public Parking within 15 days of citation issuance and complete a signed and notarized Court Appearance Agreement. You will then be assigned a future court hearing time and date. Please bring the actual citation, your driver's license and disabled permit (if applicable) to:

Office of Public Parking
231 East Forsyth St., Suite 424
Jacksonville, FL 32202

Failure to set a hearing within 15 days of issuance of the citation results in the waiver of rights to a court hearing. If you choose to pay your citation, your right to a court hearing is also waived. Failure to appear at a scheduled hearing is deemed an admission of guilt and agreement to pay.

Should further collection efforts be necessary, a collection fee equal to 40 percent of the total due (citation and late fees) will be added to the total.

I Invoices (I)

'I' Invoices are written in city-owned lots and are issued when the vehicle is left in the lot after the lot is closed. These invoices are only for the hourly parking fee and their purpose is to provide a mechanism for payment. If the spitter ticket is not provided or if the invoice is not paid within thirty calendar days of issuance, the full daily rate of $7 is due. They also accrue late charges and collection fees as indicated above.

Notice of Collection - Parking Tickets

Parking citation fines and late fees which remain unpaid after 90 days shall be sent to a collection agency, and will incur an additional 40% of the amount owed at the time of submission.  Notices of collection began being mailed December 1, 2014, to those delinquent in making payment.
