The Town of Oakville is introducing an Administrative Penalties System (APS) that will allow the town to handle parking ticket disputes instead of the provincial courts.
Starting November 12, anyone who receives a parking ticket can either pay the ticket within 15 days, or schedule a meeting with a screening officer to review it.
“The Administrative Penalty System is a more streamlined and efficient approach to deal with parking violations,” said Mayor Rob Burton.
As part of APS, additional administrative fees will be charged if the ticket is not paid within 15 days or a meeting to review the ticket is not scheduled. If someone chooses to dispute the ticket but is not satisfied with the decision of the screening officer, they may request a review by an independent hearing officer whose decision is final.
APS is one of several parking initiatives recently introduced by the town, including:
