Parking Clerk

We collect and mediate disputes of fines and fees from parking tickets. We also manage Boston’s resident parking program.

Please note: Allston-Brighton resident permits (currently on your vehicle) are being automatically renewed with the new expiration date of March 31, 2024. Visit our resident parking page for updated renewal dates.

Our primary mission is to respond effectively to questions about parking tickets, resolve any disagreements through an adjudication process, and to deter illegal parking by successfully collecting parking violation fines. We also adjudicate and collect fines on abandoned vehicles and issue permits for resident parking.

Please note:
