Parking Citation Hardship Payment Plan

MRCA Payment Plan Option:

MRCA’s Payment Plan provides citation recipients the option to enroll parking citations in a monthly payment plan. Citation recipients who enroll must make minimum monthly payments based on the total amount enrolled. Failure to make minimum monthly payments and failure to complete the plan by the completion date will result in plan cancellation and penalties being added to past due citations.

Low Income Payment Plan – $5 Enrollment Fee

There is no limit to the number of payment plans or total fine amounts for Low Income Payment Plans. Citation recipients must pay the $5 enrollment fee for each contract and cannot add citations to already established contracts. Late penalties are removed at time of enrollment, but will be reinstated if the plan is not completed. Additionally, citations must be enrolled within 60 days of issuance.

Timeline for completion and minimum monthly amounts due are based on the total amount enrolled in a payment plan.

Amount Owed Timeline for Completion Minimum Monthly Payment Due
Up to $500 Up to 18 months $25
