Employee Parking

employee parking garageEmployee parking permits at city-owned facilities in the downtown area can be very limited at times. Virtually all employee parking facilities are currently occupied with existing permit holders and wait-lists are in place at most parking locations.

If you would like to park your vehicle at a city-managed parking facility, please submit a Monthly Parking Contract Request Form. On the Request Form, please indicate which parking facilities you are interested in parking at and the Parking Operations staff will either place you on the wait list for those facilities and/or assign you to a requested facility, if immediate assignments are availability. You are welcome to contact Parking Operations at any time regarding the current status and availability at all city facilities as well as to receive estimated wait-list time frames for your requested parking facilities.

Parking Operations also keeps a comprehensive list of nearby “non-city” parking facilities in the downtown area. If you are interested in receiving a copy of this resource list, please contact Parking Operations.

Bicycle Parking

All downtown city office buildings have bicycle U-racks located around the perimeter of the buildings and inside several of our parking garages. Bicycles are not permitted inside city buildings and offices. Assigned Bicycle Locker Parking may also be available at most building locations for a fee of $3 a month. Please contact Parking Operations for more information regarding secure bike lockers.

Payment Options

Payments for monthly parking permits are withdrawn from your paycheck through pre-tax payroll deduction only. Payroll deductions for parking fees occur on the second paycheck of every month for the subsequent month. The initial first months payment will also be payroll deducted and based on the enrollment timing, a single two-month valued parking deduction may be processed on your initial parking deduction. Once the parking deductions are set-up through payroll deduction, the deductions are withdrawn “pre-tax” (contact your payroll representative for details), thus providing additional savings to you.

For parkers that are not actual “City” employees, but work at a location that is eligible for parking in a city-owned facility, they are required to pay their monthly parking fees by ACH deductions (electronic funds transfers). An additional ACH Authorization Form with an attached voided check is also required to set-up the automatic payment process.

Cancellation of Parking

If you wish to cancel your city employee parking privileges, a completed Parking Cancellation Form is required to be submitted to Parking Operations at least 30-days in advance of your end-of-month parking termination date. This cancellation form is required to officially stop your parking payroll deductions through the Payroll Division.  The proper return of the gate access device or puck (on the last parking day of the month) is also required to officially cancel your assigned parking privileges. If the cancellation of the permit does not happen prior to the second paycheck cutoff deadline for deductions for the prior month, you may be eligible for a refund, if warranted, for the following unused months’ fees. 

NOTE: There are no pro-rated payments or refunds. All parking assignments are scheduled to begin on the 1st of the month and terminate on the last calendar day of the month. If you cancel your parking any time after the 1st of the month, you must pay for that whole month's parking fees.


OCB Reminder

The available metered parking around the various city buildings (City and County Building, Minoru Yasui, Webb Building, Elections, Environmental Health, Justice Center and other City buildings) is intended to be used by the public. If you are in a city vehicle or using your official city business (OCB) parking privileges, please refrain from parking in these spaces.
