What happens if I don't pay a parking ticket I received?
If a parking ticket is not paid within 10 days of its issuance, a penalty fee will be imposed and in most cases is equal to the original fine amount. A late notice will then be sent, advising you of the ticket's status. If payment is not received within 30 days of the late notice, the ticket will be sent in for collection.

In addition, the Village has the option to send a letter to the Secretary of State requesting a drivers license suspension and even seek a warrant or additional processes.
