Parking Violations and Fines
Violators of the above bulleted items are subject to fines. Violators of these regulations are notified of the violation by the issuance of a parking ticket, which indicates the date, approximate time, locality and nature of violations. Tickets may be served by attaching or affixing a copy to the vehicle allegedly violating any of the parking regulations.
A $20 fine will be assessed for each violation. If paid within 24 hours from the time a ticket is issued, excluding weekends and holidays, the fine will be reduced to $10 per violation. The fine for parking in a handicapped spot without a valid state of Washington disabled permit is $50. Fines are to be paid at the cashier’s station located in Wenatchi Hall.
Parking fines are considered financial obligation to the college, and grades and other official records will not be released until all such obligations have been met. Such unpaid obligations will also result in prohibiting an individual from enrolling in future classes offered by the college.
Wenatchee Valley College parking permits are the property of Wenatchee Valley College and may be recalled and revoked for continued violation of parking and traffic regulations.
Following the issuance of the third unpaid violation of these parking rules and regulations, a parking "Boot" may be installed on the ticketed car with instructions to pay the fine before removal of the "Boot."
A vehicle may be impounded without notice to the owner, at the owner’s risk and expense, when, in the judgment of the parking administrator, the vehicle obstructs or impedes the flow of traffic or poses an immediate threat to public safety such as parking in fire/emergency lanes or driveways.
Questions related to parking should be referred to the parking supervisor or by calling 509.682.6450. Any decision may be appealed in writing to the WVC Vice President of Administrative Services, whose decision is final.
