Mesquite, TX – June 21, 2022 – The Mesquite City Council approved amendments to the current Parking Ordinance to assist with greater enforcement at the June 20 City Council meeting. The amendments allow other City officials other than peace officers to enforce on-street parking violations. This amendment will also alleviate police from being the only response for parking violations and assist in decreasing their response times to priority calls.
Additional authorized enforcement agents for parking violations now include City Field Inspectors, Code Enforcement Officers, and any other employee authorized by the City Manager. The amended ordinance may be viewed online at www.cityofmesquite.com/AgendaCenter.
