ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Earlier this year, a potential issue was found by the City of Roanoke regarding parking citations that were issued in place of a warning in certain situations.

Now, citizens who received such a citation can expect a refund.

The City of Roanoke along with Lancor Parking who operates the PARK Roanoke program has established a refund program for citizens who received a citation in place of a warning between Jan. 1, 2017 and March 25, 2020.

If you believe you have incorrectly received a citation, you can submit a claim to PARK Roanoke through Sept. 21, 2021.

If a claim is found to be eligible, a refund for the amount of the citation as well as any fees associated with the citation and compounded interest will be issued.

To submit a claim, visit ParkRoanoke.com and click on the banner that says: WARNING CITATION REFUND: CLICK HERE TO REQUIRE ABOUT ELIGIBILITY.

Citizens should allow up to 10 business days for a reply regarding eligibility.

If you qualify, allow three to six weeks for the refund to be processed.

All refunds will be eligible for certain first-time violations including:

  • Parking in a designated loading zone
  • Parking or stopping in a no-parking zone
  • Exceeding timed parking

To ensure that this issue is resolved, PARK Roanoke has implemented the following steps:

  • Completed full software upgrade to the TickeTrack System
  • Created New SCOFFS that accurately identify warning tickets vs. citations
  • Periodic spot audits conducted by management
  • Reviewing the current City Code
