Parking Meter Enforcement

Parking meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Meter parking is NOT enforced on weekends or on the following holidays:         

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • July 4th 
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas  

Christmas, New Years Day and July 4th will occasionally fall on a Sunday.  We will not enforce parking meters on that following Monday.  

Parking meters will be enforced on other legal holidays if the demand for parking is at or near normal levels because Mayo Clinic and most other downtown businesses are open.

The days and times that meters are enforced are listed on each parking meter.

Other parking violations such as seasonal parking requirements, loading zones, handicapped violations, no parking zones and other types of parking prohibitions are subject to enforcement at all times.

Find more information about how to contest your ticket with details about parking violation collections, including details about what to do if you received a ticket in error.
