How to Appeal a Parking Ticket

In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws, all parking violations must be paid or appealed within 21 days of issue.

** ALL APPEALS MUST BE IN WRITING. WE WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTING PARKING TICKET APPEALS IN THE TAX OFFICE. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR MAILING INSTRUCTIONS ** 

If you are appealing a parking ticket please follow the procedure below:

  1. Complete the Parking Ticket Appeal Form. Make a copy of the ticket/notice and your completed dispute form to keep for your own records.

    ** Mail the ORIGINAL ticket or overdue ticket notice, along with your written appeal with a self-addressed and stamped envelope to the Town Hall at 253 Atlantic Ave. Hull, MA 02045, Attention: Parking Clerk. **

    ** Please do not mail the appeal to the Plymouth County Parking Office address on the ticket as this will delay our receipt of your appeal and in turn, your response from us to your appeal. **
  2. Your written appeal should state your case clearly and concisely as to why you believe that you should not be held accountable to pay the parking ticket(s) in dispute. If you have any pictures to corroborate your claim, handicap placards or parking stickers or visitor passes issued by the Town of Hull, please include copies of those with your appeal.
  3. Your written appeal will be answered within 30 days of receipt. During the months of June through September, it may take slightly longer than 30 days for you to receive a response to your appeal due to the large increase in parking violations that occur in the Town during the summer months. You will not be charged any late fees during the appeal process.
  4. If your appeal is approved you will be notified in writing. No payment will be required. If your appeal is denied you will be notified in writing. Payment will be required by the due date specified in the letter you receive from the Town in response to your appeal. Failure to pay the parking ticket by the specified due date will result in additional fees and possible non-renewal of your license and/or registration at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
