City of Milwaukee New Virtual Night Parking Permits On Sale Beginning December 20

Overnight parkers may buy their 2014 annual or 4-month permits this Friday

By - Dec 19th, 2013 04:49 pm

City of Milwaukee residents who wish to park their vehicles overnight on City streets can buy their 2014 virtual parking permits beginning Friday, December 20, 2013.

New for 2014: When residents buy the annual or 4-month overnight permit, there will be no physical sticker for their vehicles. Instead, purchasers will receive a confirmation number, and their license plate becomes their permit. Parking enforcement officers will scan the license plates of cars parked overnight on city streets to determine if a valid parking permit has been purchased.

“The City of Milwaukee is looking forward to better serving our overnight parking customers by eliminating the physical overnight parking sticker,” said Department of Public Works Commissioner Ghassan Korban. “A virtual permit will help eliminate customer service problems arising from misplaced or stolen permits, plus purchasing them will be easier.”

    I would like the sticker back in the window. That was a reminder that in my busy life I need to take time ti get a permit. Now that there is no sticker in my window I forgot to buy one…but that’s why you did it that way so you can get more revenue from the little people. Thanks…can barely afford the permit now I have a ticket.

  2. Tom D says:

    The solution to this problem would be for the City to send reminder notices (via email or US mail) before the old permit expires.

  3. Edna C says:

    I did the same thing! They ask for your cell number and you check a box for reminders and announcements, but they don’t send you reminders! Now I have a ticket!

    I like the virtual overnight parking permit. I don’ t have to be afraid that somebody brake my window just to steal my sticker.
