The city of Naperville would like to inform residents and interested parties that parking fines will increase in the city beginning on January 9, 2012.
At that time, the minimum fine for parking regulation violations will become $50 with a compromise fine of $25 when the citation is paid within 15 days from the date on which the citation is issued. The previous fine was $30 with a compromise fine of $15. For fire lane parking prohibition violations, the minimum fine will be $100 with a compromise fine of $60 when the citation is paid within 15 days from the date on which the citation is issued. The previous fine was $50 with a compromise fine of $30.
The fine increase will go into effect for all parking violations with the exception of disability (handicap) parking violations, which will remain at $250. In addition, violations related to the Washington Street parking bans that are in effect during the morning hours of 6 to 8:30 a.m. and evening hours of 4 to 7 p.m. will remain at $50. There is no compromise payment in these instances.
At its Dec. 6, meeting, the City Council voted to increase the fines associated with parking citations within Naperville. The last parking fine increase by the City Council was in November 1999. Parking citations issued prior to the new fine structure will not be affected by this increase.
