Can I appeal a parking ticket? If so, what is the process for doing so?
If you have a dispute with a parking ticket that was issued by the Brainerd Police Department, the process to appeal is as follows:
Mail or hand deliver the appeal form to the Brainerd Police Department (225 East River Road, Brainerd, Minnesota 56401).
A copy of the parking ticket must accompany the Parking Ticket Appeal form.
Your appeal form will be forwarded to the Chief of Police or to the Deputy Chief of Police for review.
You will be contacted should they have questions or require further explanation.
You will be contacted via telephone as to the outcome of the appeal.
If your appeal is denied, you will have 10 calendar days from the date of notification in which to pay the fine. If payment of the fine is not received at our office within 10 calendar days from the date of notification, the fine will double.
