Download and print a not guilty plea. Return the document with an original signature (copies will not be accepted) in person to the Payment Office, or mail it to PO Box 292, St. Petersburg, FL 33731.

Expired Meter Amnesty Program

The parking amnesty program is a gesture of goodwill intended to help motorists who may not be familiar with downtown parking regulations and make a mistake by allowing their meter to expire. The program is also intended to help downtown businesses by making sure that those who have their citations voided are customers of local businesses; $25 minimum purchase required, can be multiple receipts.

The Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm, excluding holidays.  The telephone number is 727-551-3125.
