Citations and fines.

Any violation of these rules is subject to citation. Each offense may result in a separate citation.
(1) Payment: Citation fines must be paid to EWU parking services and may be paid in person, online, by mail, or by phone.
(2) Amounts:
(a) Citations: When a citation is issued, fines are determined in accordance with a fine schedule. The fine schedule is approved by the vice president for business and finance.
(b) Adjustments: When mitigating circumstances exist, authorized parking services personnel may reduce or dismiss fines.
(3) Appeals: Citations may be appealed by submitting an online or written appeal to parking services within fourteen calendar days of the date the citation was issued. If an appeal is not submitted online, handwritten appeals must be submitted to parking services in person or by mail within fourteen calendar days or a late fee will be assessed. If a timely appeal is not filed, the citation becomes final. Appeals will be reviewed by a board consisting of voting members from the following groups: Associated students, classified staff, faculty, and exempt staff. A parking services representative will act as a consultant to the board. The board may uphold or dismiss the citation. In the case of a tie vote, the board will continue discussion and vote again until a majority vote is obtained. If an impasse exists, the citation will be reduced to a warning. 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 five calendar days following the board's review, parking services shall notify the appellant, by mail or by email, of the board's determination. The board will meet every two weeks, with additional meetings as necessary. Additional appeal rights are governed by RCW 28B.10.560.
(4) Collection: Unpaid fines are subject to collection through the university's established collection methods under chapter 172-144 WAC. An owner and/or driver may be responsible for all collection fees, which may be based on a percentage up to fifty percent of the unpaid charges, and all costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees related to collection of the unpaid debt.
(5) Nonpayment: In addition to seeking collection of unpaid fines under subsection (4) of this section, unpaid fines may lead to the immobilization or impoundment of a vehicle when:
(a) A permit account (which may include one individual license plate number or a combination of license plate numbers on a single account) contains four unpaid citations with fines exceeding one hundred dollars; or
(b) A permit account (which may include one individual license plate number or a combination of license plate numbers on a single account) has a balance that is older than ninety days and exceeds one hundred dollars.
(6) Disposition of fees and fines: Proceeds from fees and fines collected under this chapter are to be deposited in the university's parking fund and applied to the costs of operating, maintaining, and patrolling the campus parking lots and administering these rules.
