With a new year comes change and new responsibility; Western’s Police Department has implemented additional parking fees in order to counteract individuals that accumulate multiple parking tickets per semester, with changes taking effect in the Fall of 2016.
Currently the ticket fee is $25 per parking violation. Once a student has accumulated over 10 parking tickets in a semester, a $50 fee will be added onto the student’s account. The student will also be required to meet with the Dean of Students for further disciplinary action.
Only one student during the 2015-2016 school year accumulated enough parking violations to result in the student’s vehicle being towed.
Western Police Chief Yvonne Meyer feels that the additional fee will prevent students from repeating parking offenses. A full list of all parking violations can be found at https://www.missouriwestern.edu/policedepartment/rules/ and in the parking office on the main campus.
