A lost or stolen parking permit must be reported immediately to the Department of Transportation and Parking and an affidavit must be filed. A lost permit will be replaced at a charge of $25.00 or the face value of the permit, whichever is less. The replacement fee shall be refunded if the missing permit is found and returned to the Department of Transportation and Parking.

A permit reported stolen will be replaced free of charge on a one-time only basis. In order for a stolen permit to be replaced free of charge, a police report must be filed for such permit. Permits reported lost or stolen may not be replaced without the approval of the Director of the Department of Transportation and Parking or his/her designee.

Any payment made by a check that is returned by the bank and not cleared upon notification shall necessitate that a hold be placed with the University Registrar or that the amount be deducted from a University or UNC Health employee’s paycheck. Returned checks of non-affiliated individuals or companies will be forwarded to a collection agency if not cleared upon notification. A $25.00 service charge shall be imposed for all returned checks.
No parking permit may be issued to any individual who has outstanding debts to the Department of Transportation and Parking. The Department of Transportation and Parking may reduce or retain any refund from the cancellation of a permit to clear all outstanding balances associated with the account. Failure to pay debts within the required time frame may result in the University arranging for the collection of fees assessed against faculty, staff, students, and visitors in the following manner:

  1. A debt owed by employees of the University and UNC Health may be deducted from the employee’s payroll checks
  2. A debt owed by a University student necessitates that a “hold” status be placed with the University Registrar
  3. The Attorney General for the State of North Carolina may recommend the use of a collection agency to collect debts from individuals whose debts may not be collected by payroll deduction or by other means
  4. Failure to pay civil penalties or other just debts owed to the Department of Transportation and Parking within ten calendar days of the date of the citation(s) or incurrence of the debt will result in a $10.00 late payment fee being assessed on each unpaid citation or other transaction
  5. A debt owed by any individual who is not eligible for payroll deduction may be subject to the garnishment of any North Carolina State income tax refund due and owing to that individual.

When the Chancellor in his/her sole judgment determines that civil penalties validly imposed for violation of this Ordinance cannot or will not be collected through normal administrative procedures, he/she may request the Attorney General of North Carolina to bring a civil action against the offender in the name of the State of North Carolina for the recovery of the penalty.
