For fiscal year 2014, revenues for parking fines and vehicle boots totaled $122,757.00 Another $20,000.00 was collected for parking permits. We continued to use the Credit Bureau in Lewiston as our collection agency for overdue parking citations. During the year they were successful in collecting $4,680.00 for parking citations past due by more than six months.
