Citations & Appeals

Citations/Tickets

Augsburg DPS personnel will be issuing citations (tickets) for vehicles without valid permits in all campus parking lots 24 hours a day.

Summer parking: Tickets will be issued to vehicles without a valid parking permit. Tickets will be issued to vehicles parked in the meter spots past the meter’s expiration.

Tickets will NOT be issued for Parking Wrong Lot or Permit Not Valid at this Time. Any Augsburg permit is valid in any Augsburg lot. Other violations may be written at the officers discretion.

Academic year parking, Fall 2014: Tickets will be issued to vehicles without a valid parking permit beginning the first day of classes, September 2nd, 2014, starting at 8am. Tickets will be issued to vehicles parked in lots or at times for which their permit is not valid (Parking Wrong Lot & Permit Not Valid at this Time). Tickets will be issued to vehicles parked in the meter spots past the meter’s expiration. Other violations may be written at the officers discretion.

Parking fines must be paid to DPS at the dispatch center or mailed to DPS at Campus Box #78, within 14 days of the issue date. Unpaid fines will be assessed to the individual’s Augsburg account, and a late fee may be assessed. Anyone with an outstanding fine will not be allowed to register, receive transcripts or purchase a parking permit in the future. Fines outstanding for more than one semester may be forwarded to a collection agency. All vehicles with two or more outstanding tickets are subject to immediate citation and/or towing at the owner/operator’s expense without notice. Parking on campus is a privilege. The privilege may be revoked for continued or gross violations of parking regulations.

Citation Appeal Process

Anyone wishing to appeal an Augsburg parking citation may do so by completing the appeal form PDF and submitting to DPS in person or by mailing it to the address listed on the form. Appeal forms are also available 24/7 at DPS.

Augsburg students, faculty, and staff may also appeal a citation online through Augnet’s Parking Services. After logging in, select the blue icon that says “appeals”. Select the violation you wish to appeal, write in your appeal information and submit. You will receive a response from the appeals committee on your appeal through e-mail.

Citations may be appealed to the Augsburg Parking Appeals Committee. All appeals must be submitted within 10 days of the issue date of the citation. The Parking Appeals Committee meets on a monthly basis and responds with their decisions to the person appealing. Only forms that are complete AND include payment will be reviewed. All Parking Appeals Committee decisions are final. A lost ticket, forgetfulness, parking only for a short period, failure to display parking permit, parking in non-designated spaces, and/or not seeing signs are unacceptable grounds for appeal, and will not be considered.

Towing

Vehicles parked in a fire lane, on a striped area, blocking handicapped access or driveways, in reserved spaces, or on any unpaved surface, in such a manner as to interfere with safety or normal traffic flow will also be subject to citation and/or towing at the owner/operator’s expense without notice. 

All vehicles with three or more outstanding tickets are subject to immediate citation and/or towing at the owner/operator’s expense without notice.
