As End of Parking Amnesty Approaches, City of Syracuse Confirms all Responses Received by Sept. 25 Deadline will be Addressed

Syracuse, N.Y. — With the end of the Parking Amnesty program approaching, the City of Syracuse Department of Finance confirmed that all requests for amnesty made by the program close-date of Sept. 25 will be processed.  With two days remaining, the program had yielded more than $420,000 in payments to the City.

Due to the large response to the program, which addresses unpaid parking violations over more than 20 years, the City Payment Center is working through a backlog of inquiries but will ensure every request postmarked or received by the Sept. 25 deadline is processed accordingly. This includes accounts requiring clarification or additional information to resolve the violation.

Responses sent by mail to the Commissioner of Finance at P.O. Box 5211, Binghamton, NY 13802 postmarked prior to the deadline will be applied to the account of each ticket holder.  Payments made through the Drop Box on the Market Street side of City Hall (233 E. Washington Street) by Friday will also be accepted.  Responses should include certified checks or money orders with the license plate or ticket number.

Payments received after the deadline will be applied to the ticket holder’s account, however, fees and penalties will be reinstated.

Questions regarding Amnesty or other Parking Violation concerns can be made by phone to 315-448-8483 or by email to
