The Parking Enforcement Unit
The Parking Enforcement Unit falls under the direction of the Professional Services Unit Sergeant. The unit is comprised of two civilian parking enforcement officers, they are responsible for patrolling the entire city limits and enforcing all parking violations on city property, handicapped or fire lane violations.
The Parking Enforcement Unit issues citations via a hand-held computer to vehicles parked illegally, such as loading zone violations, no-parking zones, fire lane violations, expired parking time zones, handicapped parking, etc. Although no one enjoys receiving a parking citation, the Parking Enforcement Unit has the responsibility of ensuring an orderly traffic flow especially in the downtown area and maximizing the utilization of parking spaces for the public, tourists and business owners and vendors.
If you have received a citation by our Parking Enforcement Unit, please carefully read and follow the instructions on the citation. Failure to submit the fine amount within the indicated time may result in additional penalties being added to the fine amount, denial of vehicle registration, or immobilization of your vehicle by booting.
Paying Your Fine
You must pay the appropriate fine within 30 days of receiving a citation in order to avoid incurring a late penalty. If you wish to contest the citation, you must request a court hearing within 30 calendar days contacting the Parking Enforcement Unit at the Stuart Police Department. Failure to do so means that you have waived the right to contest the citation.
Parking citations may be paid by personal check or money order payable to the City of Stuart. You may pay by mail (DO NOT SEND CASH) or in person at the Stuart Police Department – 830 SE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Stuart, Florida or online.
Parking citation payments can be paid online with multiple payment types accepted. To make an online payment you just have your citation number and click on the link below.
