Fines & Penalties

FY 2021-23 Proposed Policy Budget

Fines & Penalties consist primarily of parking enforcement fines (roughly 90% of the total), penalties, and interest on late property tax payments.

Revenues from the City’s fines and penalties (largely driven from parking citations) declined during both FY 2019-20 and FY 2021-22 as a result of reduced driving and suspension of street sweeping, parking meter, and residential parking permit enforcement during the pandemic. These revenues are expected to increase (as with Parking Tax revenues) once workers return to offices and consumers resume in-person shopping.
