Payment of a parking citation
Parking citation payments may be made in
person or by mail within 12 days of receiving the citation.
To pay by mail, send a check, cashier
check, or money order made payable to the City of Lufkin
along with the citation. Do not send cash by mail.
You may wish to make a copy of the citation to keep for your
records. Please include the entire citation number and the
license plate number on your method of payment to ensure
that the payment is credited to the correct violation. A
$25.00 fee will be charged on all returned checks.
Contesting a parking citation
You may contest a parking citation either
by appearing in person or by mail within 14 calendar days
from the date of the citation and entering a plea of Not
Guilty. Failure to appear or make written contact within the
14 calendar days is deemed an admission of liability and all
fines will be assessed. If contesting by mail, include a
detailed written statement along with the citation and any
evidence you want taken into consideration. Please include
your name, address, city, state, and zip code so you can
receive the Hearing Officer’s ruling.
If you received a letter notifying you that a parking
ticket was issued on a vehicle registered in your name and
you no longer own the vehicle, you must notify the Court in
person or in writing and explain why the parking tickets do
not belong to you.
