Indigent Payment Plan

Beginning July 1, 2018, El Dorado County will allow payment plans to low income registered owners/lessees for parking citations issued on or after July 1, 2018 for amounts of $300.00 or less. The payment plan will be called an 'Indigent Payment Plan.'

An Indigent Payment Plan provides the option to pay your parking citation in monthly instalments of up to $25.00 each month and must be paid in full within 18 months of the plan approval date. Upon approval, a non-refundable Payment Plan fee of $5.00 will be assessed to the total Payment Plan amount and all late fees and penalties shall be waived. Waived late fees and penalties may be reinstated if the person falls out of compliance with the Payment Plan.

How to Qualify

To qualify for an Indigent Payment Plan you must have supporting documents and file the application within 60 calendar days of issuance of the citation, or within 10 days of the Administrative Hearing determination, whichever is later.  Call 1-800-989-2058 or here.
