Tickets & Towing

To keep White City streets safe and our properties peaceful, the Town depends on the Commissionaires to patrol the region and to make sure bylaws are being followed.

As you probably know, because we’re kind of sticklers about this, parking is not allowed on White City streets. For extreme circumstances, check out our parking tips and regulations.

The Commissionaires will give drivers who park on the street a warning. If drivers don’t move their vehicle for an extended period of time, especially if they leave it overnight, they will get a $40 ticket. (if payment is received within 5 days the penalty will be reduced to $10.00). Tickets are payable at the Town Office, and although we’d love to see you, we’d rather it be for something else!
