Eureka police upgrading parking enforcement processes
EUREKA, Calif. - The Eureka Police Department (EPD) announced it is modernizing parking enforcement and ticket payment processing for the City of Eureka.
According to EPD, they've partnered with Phoenix Group Information Systems to update databases, make contesting a parking ticket easier and also modify the repercussions of unpaid tickets. "In addition to replacing an outdated database with a web-based solution, citizens are now able to pay and contest parking tickets believed to be issued in error on a secured website," the EPD said in a press release.
Another important aspect of this change its that failure to pay parking tickets under the new system will result in vehicle registration being withheld with the Department of Motor Vehicles, rather than being sent to a third party debt collector.
Individuals with outstanding parking fees are encouraged to contact EPD Parking Enforcement at 707-441-4073. Payments are also accepted in person at the EPD building on 604 C St. during office hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding holidays.
Citizens can access the City of Eureka Parking Enforcement website at www.paymycite.com/eureka or directly through the EPD website.
