Enforcement of Parking Meter Expiration Violations

Effective immediately, the City of Dubuque is temporarily suspending enforcement of parking meter expiration violations through April 12, 2020. During this time parking customers are not required to feed/pay parking meters in Dubuque.

All other street parking regulations will continue to be enforced in accordance with City code, including but not limited to, street storage (vehicles parked on the street longer than 24 hours without moving), disabled parking spaces, fire zone compliance, and blocking of driveways. Monthly reserved parking in ramps and surface lots will still be enforced.

Pay by Phone Option


Parking meter customers can use their mobile phones to pay for parking at all 2,000 of the City of Dubuque's parking meters using the PassportParking Mobile Pay system. Informational decals have been added to all meters to provide basic instructions on how to utilize this service.
