How much money does the city of Wilmington make from overtime parking tickets?

For most folks, a parking ticket shifts the balance from a good day to a bad day.

However, for the city of Wilmington, your expired meter means more money in their Parking Enterprise Fund.

During the 2010 fiscal year, expired meter fine collections totaled $203,490, or almost $17,000 a month, according to Malissa Talbert, City of Wilmington communications manager. These funds cover the parking program’s operating and maintenance costs, as well as pay for debt incurred by constructing the city’s parking decks.

    I recieved a ticket the other day eventhough there was not a meter. Where was I supposed to put the money. I even took a picture of the missing meter. I got no answer when I called the number at the bottom of the ticket. What do I do now? Can anyone help?

    Many of the spaces down town now have numbers painted on the curb. You must walk down to a pay machine (like at Wrightsville Beach) enter in your space number and pay, then leave the ticket in your window.
