  • Parking Enforcement Program

    Campus Memo

    To:
    All Faculty, Staff, and Students
    From: David Powe, EdD, Chief Administrative Officer
    Subject: Parking Enforcement Program

    In pursuit of the goal of improving the overall experience of our patients, coupled with the Medical Center’s ongoing commitment to providing adequate parking for patients, visitors and authorized parkers while the master facilities plan is being implemented, we must support the parking policies of the Medical Center with a parking enforcement program. 

    An effective enforcement program will improve customer service and create more parking on campus through the timely, efficient and consistent application of established parking policies on a daily basis. 

    This program will be supported by:

    • Signage at the garage entrances, ticket dispensers and exit booths advising parkers of the policy.
    • Placing notices in campus media such as the Intranet News Scroll, Bulletin Board, This Week e-newsletter, CenterView, Clinical Update, the Murmur and other campus media as deemed appropriate.

    All faculty, staff and students operating motor vehicles on the UMMC campus should become familiar with the parking policies of the Medical Center if they are not already.  Lack of knowledge of the parking policies will not be accepted as a defense for violations.

    Existing parking policies may be accessed on the Intranet at: http://www.umc.edu/intranet/home/policies.html.  Violators of UMMC’s parking policies will be subject to fines, vehicle immobilizing devices and the UMMC progressive disciplinary policy.

    All vehicles with authorized access to on-campus parking (not including the stadium lot) must be registered with the Division of Physical Facilities, Department of Parking and Transportation, located in trailer 1 across from the Addie McBryde Center on Peachtree Street. Questions may be directed to parking@umc.edu

    The Division of Physical Facilities will administer the parking enforcement program with assistance provided by the UMMC Campus Police Department when required. 

    The following activities will support the enforcement program:

    • Garage personnel will record the license numbers and other vehicle information of unauthorized parkers whenever possible.
    • Parking Compliance Officers will monitor all UMMC-owned parking facilities, including parking lots at the Medical Tower, Batson Specialty Clinic, and along Lakeland Drive, on a regular basis to maintain compliance with all UMMC parking policies.

    Failure to comply with UMMC parking policies will result in the following:

    1st violation – the owner/operator will receive a ticket for $25. The violator will be referred to Human Resources and/or their Department Chair, Dean or Supervisor for a verbal warning.

     2nd violation – vehicle will be booted and the owner/operator will be charged $50 for boot removal. The violator will be referred to Human Resources and/or their Department Chair, Dean or Supervisor for a written warning.   

     3rd violation – vehicle will be booted and the owner/operator will be charged $100 for boot removal. The violator will be referred to Human Resources and/or their Department Chair, Dean or Supervisor for a final warning.  (All Final Warnings must be approved by Human Resources Employee Relations Division before administered.)

     4th violation – the violator will be reported to Human Resources and their Department Chair or Dean for termination.  Students in violation of the UMMC Parking Policy for the fourth time will be reported to their Dean for professionalism/dismissal proceedings. 

     Note:  The person in whose name a vehicle is registered with the Department of Parking and Transportation shall be responsible for all parking violations received by that vehicle.

     Employees, faculty and staff receiving fines will have the amount of the fine payroll deducted. In the event that a boot is placed on vehicle, boot removal will need to be paid in cash to the Division of Physical Facilities, Department of Parking and Transportation, located in Trailer #1.

     Unpaid parking fines are cumulative until paid.

     The unauthorized removal of a boot will subject the registered owner/operator to a $200 fine.  If the boot is damaged, destroyed or stolen due to its unauthorized removal, the responsible party will be required to pay for the replacement value of the boot and will be referred to Human Resources and the appropriate Department Chair or Dean for disciplinary action up to and including termination.

     Thank you in advance for your compliance with our parking regulations.
