Citations

Parking tickets can be paid online. Parking citations also can be paid through the City Cashier, located in the Civic Center building (1819 Farnam Street). The City Cashier is on the Harney level on the north side of the escalators.

If you received a citation that stating a fine of $0.00 is owed, it is meant to serve as a warning only and will not show up in a citation search online.

You can appeal a citation online or through a formal letter to the City of Omaha cashier’s office. Whichever method you choose, it is a simple process that requires one of the following items:

  • Citation number
  • License plate number

The appeal process can take up to 30 days during which a citation’s activity is suspended. A late charge will not apply during this process. If the protest is denied, you will have 30 days to pay without a late fee from the date of the denial. If a person pays a ticket that is on protest, the protest is automatically voided. You will be notified one way or the other if an appeal is denied or accepted.

Parking citations currently carry a $16 fine. There is a 30 day window to pay or appeal citations before a $20 late fee is applied. After that the option to appeal is automatically disabled.

Booting and towing occur when a vehicle has accumulated three unpaid tickets. Thirty days after your third unpaid ticket, your vehicle is eligible to receive a boot on the wheel of the car prior to the tow. If you discover that your car has a boot or has been towed, call Omaha Vehicle Impound Facility at 402-444-5782. It is located at 7809 F Street. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
