What is the difference between a private parking ticket/violation and a City parking citation?

Private parking violations or parking bills are issued by an owner or representative of a private lot. Those violations are not enforced by the City of Wichita. Property owners can charge people for parking on their property and they may place the bill on the vehicle in the form of a private violation. Consumers can contact the parking company if they have questions or wish to appeal the violation. They should follow the process described in the documentation they received. Appeals are generally handled on a case-by-case basis. If a private lot is properly signed, the City of Wichita is authorized to write a parking citation to enforce restrictions. The City of Wichita citations should not be confused with private violations, and City citations must be handled through Municipal Court.
