6 Month and Annual Permits

Six-month permit lotteries are open twice per year. Applications are accepted:

  • during the months of September for permits valid from October 1 through March 31
  • during the month of March for both annual permits and permits valid from April 1 through September 30. Annual Permits are valid from April 1 through March 31. 

If all 6-month permits available are not sold, pro-rated six-month permits are available after October 1st and April 1st on a first-come basis. 


If there are more applicants than spaces, the City uses a lottery system, as follows:

  1. A random number is assigned to each application.
  2. Numbers are drawn by the Finance Director or other designated person and witnessed by a Finance Customer Service employee.
  3. Applicants are notified by phone or email. The applicant has two weeks to pick up the permit, otherwise, another application is drawn.

Fees are due when the permits are picked up.
