There have been many discussions around water coolers, restrooms, parking lots, and some social media websites over citations issued September 13th and beyond for employees. As a result, staff members requested that Staff Council seek answers to questions regarding:
- Citation grace period
- Payroll deduction for parking tags
- Payment plan for parking tags.
Staff Council is excited to announce that through collaborative efforts between Mr. Jerry Graham, Vice President for Finance and Administration, Chief Justin Williams, University Police Department and Parking Office, and Ms. Alana Hefner, Staff Council President, employees will have a new option available to them when purchasing their 2012-2013 parking tag.
Beginning in 2012-2013 (September 1, 2012), a payroll deduction option will be available for faculty/staff parking tags. With this option, employees may choose to draft a one-time lump sum of $50 from their September earnings, or $25 per month from their September and October earnings. More information about this option will be forth coming in the future months as we gear up for the 2012-2013 year. In that same regard, the University Police Department and Parking Office will set forth clear and concise expectations as to when citations will be issued in the future. (**If you received a citation and wish to appeal it, please visit the Parking website http://www.tarleton.edu/parking/. Please Note: There are two levels to the appeal process. If you get denied on the 1st attempt, you may pursue a 2nd appeal.)
Thank you to all who voiced your thoughts and concerns over the past few weeks. You are important to this university and this is just another way in which the university can demonstrate such gratitude. I would also like to thank the Tarleton leadership for listening to the concerns of the employees and taking action as the new payment plan/payroll deduction is rolled out. Finally, I would like to thank the employees within the division of Finance & Administration who will (in the not so distant future) develop this process. Your work does not go unnoticed.
