PARKING POLICIES AND
The College has recently adopted new
policies and procedures stipulating that valid parking decals must be
placed on the rear of the vehicles in order to gain entry into the
parking facilities. The Campus will begin enforcing this policy. Listed
below are the main points of a Warning System that will be used in the
enforcement of the new parking decal policy:
First Warning: A notice will be placed on the windshield of the vehicle and
the tag recorded into a database. The notice will instruct students
and staff where to obtain the parking decals.
Second Warning: A notice will be placed on the windshield of the vehicle and
the tag recorded into a database. The notice will instruct the owner
that a boot will be placed on the vehicle if a third offense occurs.
Third Warning: (Action)
A boot will be placed on the vehicle so that it is immobilized or the
vehicle may be towed. If the vehicle is booted ($25.00 to remove
the boot), directions will be placed on the windshield explaining
the procedures to remove the boot. If it is towed, instructions on
how to retrieve the vehicle will be in the Parking Garage Office.
