The Parking Clerk handles the processing and appeals of all parking violations for the Town of Essex according to M.G.L. Ch. 90 § 20A 1/2.

Parking Tickets may be paid in person, by mail, or online. Payment must be received (not postmarked) within 21 days to avoid late fees.

Please note:
Parking ticket appeals must be made within 21 days of the date of violation otherwise they will not be considered. All appeals must outline why the ticket was written unlawfully. If you are able, please be as clear as possible indicating where you parked. Photographic evidence is most helpful in making a determination, but not necessary. Appeals may be in person or in writing. Written appeals do not need to be on the prescribed form, however must include all identifying information. All decisions are final.

Both Transfer Station Stickers and Resident Parking Stickers allow for Essex residents to park in areas labeled "Sticker Parking Only." Visit the DPW for Transfer Station Sticker information or the Town Clerk for Resident Sticker information.
