Night Parking Permit System
For the convenience of the city’s night parking permit customers, there is no longer a requirement to display a physical permit. Now, when residents buy a night parking permit, they will complete the same application and receive a confirmation number to prove purchase of the permit, but will not receive a physical permit to place on the vehicle’s window. The license plate number will be used by parking enforcement to determine whether the owner has purchased a valid permit. All customer service problems arising from misplaced or stolen permits will be eliminated.
A night parking permit currently costs $20 per 4-month trimester or $40 for the calendar year. Failure to purchase a permit will still be subject to a $20 citation. Permits may be purchased online.

Temporary Night Parking Permission
Free overnight parking is permitted on a temporary basis for special situations or circumstances, like providing parking for out-of-town visitors or for when residents lose access to their private parking spaces due to street or alley construction projects.
Permission may be obtained each night by calling 414-286-8300 or completing the Online Night Parking Permission Request between the hours of 7:00 AM and 1:00 AM Sunday through Friday.
Any questions can be answered by calling 414-286-CITY.
