Commissionaires pair with EasyPark in Sidney

Town no longer dealing with parking ticket payments

The Town of Sidney recently streamlined their parking ticket system by pairing with a Vancouver-based parking company.

Parking enforcement in the Town of Sidney is overseen by the Commissionaires and they recently joined up with EasyPark, a company that offers parking solutions on the lower mainland. The partnership between the Commissionaires and EasyPark means drivers who get parking tickets in Sidney will no longer pay their fines at Town Hall.

“The new system will offer more options for how people can pay parking tickets and how they can dispute them,” explained Sidney’s Senior Bylaw Enforcement Officer, Keith Blott.

“We feel this system is going to make it easier for everyone involved including those paying tickets. It will also lessen the workload on our staff here at Town Hall since we were the ones dealing with payments and disputes.”

Rather than paying parking tickets at Sidney Town Hall, payments can now be made to EasyPark online at easypark.ca or by mailed-in cheque. Disputes can also be handled online or by phone with EasyPark or directly by email through the Commissionaires.

The Town has also enhanced the parking information on their website at sidney.ca.

There is now a link that provides answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about parking or paying fines.

“We really hope it’s going to be easier for everyone,” Blott said.
