Permit Information-Permanent On-Street Parking
Permits for on-street parking are available for a yearly charge of $25 and are valid from July 1 through June 30. (Pro-rated rate for partial year) An application must be filled out and submitted for review with all proper documentation. Be advised that driveway space, garage space, the number of vehicles and the size of vehicles are all taken into consideration during the permit process. ALL vehicle registrations and driver's license information must be to City of Plymouth addresses. Permits can only be issued to vehicles that are registered in the City of Plymouth.  NO EXCEPTIONS!! 

When a parking permit is approved, the permit must be properly attached to the bottom left side of the rear bumper. (Make sure the bumper is clean and then wiped with rubbing alcohol before placing the permit on the bumper.) Be advised, this permit does not allow for parking in undesignated areas and does not guarantee an on-street parking space during special events (i.e.; Fall Festival, Art in the Park, etc).

Permits are renewed annually in June for those residents that have had a permit in the past year, however, documentation for the permit will still be checked during the renewal process, by checking the same information that is needed for the application process.

Administrative Dismissal
If you feel that a parking ticket has been issued in error, an appeal for an administrative dismissal is possible. The Administrative Dismissal Form must be completed in full, and it will be evaluated by the Chief of Police for its possible dismissal. If the Chief deems that the parking ticket is a question of fact and he cannot administratively dismiss same, a Court hearing in front of a Magistrate or Judge will have to be applied for. Contact the 35th District Court at 734-459-4740 to set up a hearing date.

Handicap parking violations that have been issued where a valid Handicap Permit is available (possibly due to improperly displayed or expired) will be administratively dismissed if the documentation is presented with the violation at the Police Department.
