Parking Authority Refunding Fees Due To Error

If you paid a $15 late fee for a parking violation in Lexington between July 2008 and mid-April 2012, you may be entitled to a refund.

In a statement released Tuesday, Lexington Parking Authority Board chair James Frazier points to a glitch that occurred when the Parking Authority switched from writing paper tickets to using electronic hand-held devices about seven years ago. One type of violation, coded “1G – Expired Meter,” began generating $15 late fees 15 days out instead of 30.

Though the error was fixed on paper in 2012, the incorrect late fees were never addressed – until now, that is.

Anyone who paid the early fine is being asked to contact LEXPARK on North Broadway either in person or by phone at (859) 231-7275. They will be entitled to a refund and a $3 parking voucher that can be used at any LEXPARK garage.
