For fiscal year 2015, revenues for parking fines and vehicle boots totaled $127,350.00 Another $18,194 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 $3,050 for parking citations past due by more than six months.
The two automated parking ticket devices continue to be very efficient by digitally downloading citations into the AIMS computer software which saves time on data entry. The ticket devices have been a benefit to the Record Technicians and save monies on paper costs and reducing entry errors.
