Parking tickets may be issued by the St. Joseph Police Department or the public parking enforcement staff. Tickets must be paid or protested within 48 hours of issuance. Penalties begin at five days and are assessed again at ten days. A parking fine schedule is available online for reading, and Chapter 28 of the Code of Ordinance (PDF) defines violations.
Parking fines may be paid in person or mailed to:
City Hall 1100 Frederick Avenue Room 101A St. Joseph, MO 64501
If more than ten outstanding tickets are accumulated, a wheel immobilization devise may be placed upon a vehicle if parked upon the public right-of-way. If the devise is applied, an additional fee of $50 will be assessed in addition to the fines already due.
