The downtown area features metered parking along many of the adjacent streets. Some of these meters are able to be paid via credit card or electronically; additionally, city lots 6 & 10 can be paid via kiosk. Electronic payments may be submitted via the Park Smarter App. For information on paying via kiosk or electronically, see below.
Hours of enforcement for downtown parking meters and kiosks are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
City parking tickets can be paid in several ways:
1. Mail the fine amount in the provided envelope (please make sure the address shows on the outside). Please do not mail in cash. Use a check or money order payable to City of Menomonie.
2. Drop payment in one of the collection boxes. These are located on every block in downtown Menomonie and on the 1st floor next to the Dunn County Jail lobby in the Dunn County Judicial Center.
3. Pay electronically by following this link: www.remit-online.com/715001 . Please be aware that there is an online payment fee.
*If your vehicle’s registration has been suspended you will not be able to make an online payment.
SUMMER: Beginning May 15, 2023 and ending August 18, 2023, free parking will be permitted at all city meters north of, and including, Wilson Avenue downtown. All meters that are included in the free parking are marked by a blue bag labeled 'free parking' that is placed over the meter. This also includes city lot 6 with the exception of spaces designated as permit-only. Free Parking during this time excludes city lot 10 and the 15-minute meters in front of the Post Office.
No person, firm, or corporation shall use the streets, alleys or any parking place for the storage of vehicles. A person shall be deemed to be using the streets, alleys or other public parking places for storage whenever they shall park a vehicle thereon for a continuous period of twenty four (24) hours or more.
The city imposes special restrictions to facilitate snow removal and street cleaning. From November 1 through April 1, between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m., motorists must park on the side of the street that corresponds with the date: the side of the street with odd-numbered houses on odd-numbered calendar days, and vice versa. All streets in the city are subject to the odd-even calendar parking restriction. This ordinance modifies areas on city streets where parking is authorized. Areas that restrict/prohibit parking on an ongoing basis are not affected by the calendar ordinance and continue to be restricted as posted.
The easiest way to remember the ordinance is to always park your vehicle for the next day if you are parking before mid-night, as enforcement occurs between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.
The only exceptions: You may park on the north side of Main Street between 10th Street and 13th Street regardless of the calendar date. Additionally, parking is allowed on the south side of Main Street between 13th Street and 17th Street regardless of the calendar date.
-No parking within ten (10) feet of a fire hydrant
-No parking within four (4) feet of a driveway
-No parking closer than fifteen (15) feet to the near limits of a cross walk (marked or unmarked)
-No parking for any period of time in a yellow zone
The above restricted areas are often marked with yellow curb but you are responsible for compliance with the distance limitations whether or not the curb is yellow painted.
Front Yard Parking
The parking of any motor vehicle within the front yard or street side yard shall be on a driveway or parking pad.
No parking pad shall be allowed in the front yard or street side yard except:
The vehicle will be in violation if any portion of the vehicle/tire is off the approved/improved parking surface.
If you wish to contest a parking ticket, you can call the MPD front office at 715-232-2198 and request to speak to the issuing officer. You can also contact the Clerk of Courts office at 715-232-2611.
