Downtown Parking Enforcement

Downtown parking is monitored by a part-time civilian parking enforcement officer. On-street parking is timed, with the spaces allowing for two-hour parking. Most parking lots owned by the City are controlled by parking meters, but a monthly parking permit may be obtained from the City Treasurer's Office, First Floor, Municipal Building, 819 1st Avenue South, Fort Dodge, Iowa, 515-576-4551.

Parking tickets may be appealed within 10 days of the date that the ticket was issued. If your appeal is denied and you wish to further appeal the ticket, you may do so through the court system. You must file the appeal within 10 days of receiving the ticket.  Appeal forms can be obtained at the Fort Dodge Treasurer's Office, the Fort Dodge Police Department, or by clicking here.
