In June 2014, the City of Mississauga will begin issuing penalty notices (parking tickets) under the Administrative Penalty System (APS), which is a more efficient way to enforce parking and licensing by-laws and collect fines.
“This process is used by many Ontario municipalities and offers a more timely review process for those who wish to question their parking notices,” said Mickey Frost, director, Enforcement. “The process also gives the City the ability to collect fines with shorter deadlines.”
In June, penalty notices (parking tickets) will used by enforcement officers for most parking bylaw violations.
Accessible parking and Toronto Pearson International Airport parking tickets will continue to be managed through the Provincial Offences Court.
Payments and disputes of handwritten or electronic penalty notices (parking tickets) will be managed and processed by the City of Mississauga.
Screening and Hearing Officers
Screening Officers are City employees who are appointed by City Council. Screening Officers are bound by the City’s Conflict of Interest Guidelines.
Hearing Officers are independent third parties who are also appointed by City Council and are bound by the City’s Conflict of Interest Guidelines and the Statutory Powers Procedure Act.
Failure to Respond
No response or action taken by the registered owner to pay the ticket will result in a notice of default being sent to the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (Service Ontario). Renewal of existing or the issuance of new vehicle licence permits will be denied until payment is made including all other fees.
