Submitting Payments:

City of Montclair is not required to provide any invoices, payment reminders, or notification of late or insufficient payments. It is your sole responsibility to ensure payments are made timely and in the proper amounts.  All payments must be received by the due date.  Customers are encouraged to set up their own payment reminders. Helpful tips include: taking a photo of your payment plan agreement, setting regular reminders in your calendar, and telling a family member or friend who helps you with your finances.

Minimum monthly payments are due no later than the 1st or 15th of each month as identified in your plan approval letter.

There are no prepayment penalties and you may voluntarily make excess payments.  However, any excess payments will not relieve you of the obligation to timely make the mandated monthly payments in full each month until such time that entire payment amount is paid in full and the payment plan is completed.  If at any time you have questions about the remaining balance due, final payment amounts, or anything else related to your payment plan, please call our customer service staff at the number above. 

How to submit payments under a payment plan:

By Mail: Send check or money order payable to City of Montclair Parking Enforcement Center, P.O. Box 3214, Milwaukee, WI 53201-3214. Reference the Payment Plan number and license plate on the check/money order.

Payment Plan Default:

If you default on your payment plan you will have 45 days from Notice of Payment Default to make the missed payment and otherwise bring or keep your payment plan payment(s) current. Failure to do so will result in you being removed from the payment plan. After this one-time 45 day extension expires, you will not be provided any further extensions or notices, and any additional late or insufficient payments or other forms of default will result in immediate removal from the payment plan.  Removal from the payment plan could result in: (i) any fees and penalties that had been waived as part of the payment plan being added back to the amount due, and (ii) vehicle registration holds or other potential consequences as permitted by law.
