Parking Enforcement


Parking Enforcement Division

The Parking Enforcement Division is primarily responsible to ensure that motorists comply with local parking laws and ordinances and issue tickets for violations on all Johnson City streets and municipal parking lots. In addition to monitoring violations, parking enforcement is also responsible for maintenance of the parking meters and meter money collection.  

Effective parking enforcement provides for the safe and efficient flow of traffic and also improves pedestrian safety by keeping crosswalks and street corners clear of parked cars.  Parking enforcement also improves the turnover of parking spaces in the downtown business district.  This is critical to the health of our business community, because if a visitor can’t find a place to park, they may choose to take their business or leisure elsewhere.  Enforcement of all designated handicap parking spaces in Johnson City is also a priority to help ensure the spaces are not abused and are available to those who have a handicap parking placard.  

To report a Parking Violation

To report a critical parking violation (vehicle blocking a driveway, fire hydrant, crosswalk, etc), call:


Be prepared to provide information regarding the vehicle's description and plate number.  The violation must be observed by a parking enforcement officer or police officer in order for a ticket to be issued.
