Parking Fines and Fees 

The city’s parking fine schedule allows first time violators of downtown Plymouth’s overtime parking limits to receive a warning instead of an automatic $15 ticket. 

Overtime Parking Graduated Ticket Fees

  • First overtime ticket is free with each subsequent overtime ticket increasing in value based upon a 12-month period from the date of issue of the first ticket.  
    • First offense: Free
    • Second offense: $25
    • Third Offense: $50
    • Fourth Offense: $75
    • Fifth and subsequent tickets: $75


Discounts/Penalties


  • Early Pay:  Pay within 48 hours of any parking citation and receive a $15 reduction in the fine.
  • Late Fee: After 14 days all citations are an additional $10.


Cash Payments are accepted in person at City Hall or electronic payments can be made at www.officialpayments.com    

One year from the date violators receive their free ticket, the fine schedule will be reset and will be eligible again for another free ticket, with their second ticket $25, third $50, etc.

Overnight On-Street Parking

Ordinance Section 70-93

  • This ordinance states that there shall be no parking on any public roadway, public street, road, road shoulder, court, or alley within the city between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., with the exception of Sundays and holidays.  Signs are posted, at all of the city entrances, as per the ordinance.


On Street Permit Information


  • An application can be filled out and submitted for review (found on the City of Plymouth’s website listed below).
  • Permits are available for the charge of $25 and are valid from July 1 through June 30.   
    • If approved, the permit must be properly attached to the bottom left side of the rear bumper.  Permit does not allow for parking in undesignated areas.

 
Allowances to Parking on Street
