A parking services representative will act as a consultant to the board and will vote only to break a tie. The board may uphold or dismiss the citation. If the board upholds the citation, it may reduce the fine amount. In no event may the board impose a fine exceeding the amount set forth in the fine schedule. Within ten calendar days following the board's review, parking services will notify the appellant, by mail or by email, of the board's determination.
