• Plate Cover
• Handicap Placard Verification ($25 correction fee)

The Neighborhood Services Department at City Hall (1243 National City Boulevard) will have an officer sign off your citation as a courtesy (no service charge) and you will only need to pay the $10 correction fee at the Finance Department (located behind City Hall), or mail it the Citation Processing Center (within the 21-days period)

Please call the Neighborhood Services Department at (619) 336-4364 for more information.
