Additional late fees will be applied on tickets not paid after 10, 30, & 60 days at $25, $30, and $35 cumulatively.
If you feel a parking ticket was wrongfully issued, you may file an appeal. Your request will be reviewed by the Parking Appeal Committee and you will be notified of its decision.
The ticket will be held and late payment fees will not apply pending a final determination.
The Appeal Form can be completed at the Sault Ste. Marie Police Department at 401 Hursley Street, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783. You must include a copy of the ticket with the form or the appeal will not be accepted.
To dispute either the Parking Appeal Committee’s decision or opt to bypass the appeal process you can file a Dispute Form at the Police Department. You must include a copy of the ticket and a copy of your driver’s license with the form or the dispute will not be accepted.
If you dispute a local parking ticket, you will be mailed a State of Michigan citation for the alleged violation. You will be instructed to contact the 91st District Court to schedule an informal hearing. Attorneys are not allowed at informal hearings. Late fees will not accumulate during this process. If you are found responsible by the judge, additional court costs and fees may apply.
