The enforcement of parking regulation means revenue for town coffers as well. Parking meters are in use May 1 through Nov. 1, from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., Roy said, and tickets for meter violations are $15, while fines for all other parking infractions are $20, except for handicap parking violations.

Tickets are paid in the Town Clerk’s office. For the last fiscal year, running from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, parking tickets brought in $72,965. Towing administration fees are not included in that figure.

Violators get four notices for parking tickets, and those who refuse to pay aren’t forgotten.

“If they don’t pay, the ticket goes into default and goes to the Registry,” Roy said. “Then, when people go to register a car, they can’t until they pay the fine.”
