Housed within the Mount Vernon City Court facility, Parking Ticket Collections is responsible for the collection of fines issued by authorized personnel of the City of Mount Vernon. Employees verify the accuracy of parking tickets and correspond with ticket holders regarding insufficient payment of fines.

They have the additional responsibility of setting up trials for disputes of issued tickets, researching questionable issues; such as broken meters, and addressing queries about traffic sign placement. The City is taking a more aggressive approach to seizing vehicles for nonpayment of parking ticket fines. Parking Ticket Collections conducts all research, such as location of vehicle when tickets were given; corresponds with owners for payment of overdue fines including payment agreements; and issues orders on vehicles that are ultimately booted for nonpayment of overdue fines. Vehicle owners are given every opportunity to satisfy parking ticket debts before a final order is issued. Once a vehicle boot is installed, it cannot be removed until all debts are satisfied in full, including a mandatory booting fee.

ThPay Parking Fine Onlinee addition of laptop computers has enabled booting personnel to run vehicle and parking ticket payment compliance information in the field. Accurate, up to the moment information is available while the vehicle is in sight. Ticket writers are equipped with handheld computers that generate bar-coded parking tickets. Portable printers allow ticket personnel to issue tickets with minimal data entry and no handwritten information by simply scanning the vehicles, registration information.
