New Transferable Parking Permits for UT Tyler Community
August 12, 2011
For the 2011-12 academic year, the UT Tyler Police Department will issue new, static vinyl parking permits for students, faculty and staff, Mike Medders, chief of police, announced.
To be considered valid, the new permits must now be placed inside the vehicle – on the front, lower passenger-side windshield. Because they are transferable, only one will be issued per person. Cost remains the same.
Medders said he expects the changes to be positive.
“Due to decals being transferable, it will no longer be necessary to obtain a temporary parking permit when driving another vehicle. Also, the new decals will be placed on the inside windshield making them less vulnerable to theft,” he said.
Parking permits will be issued to students, faculty and staff in the University Center foyer at the following times:
•8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Aug. 15 – 19; Aug. 22
•10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Aug. 20
•8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Aug. 23 – 24
Students must bring their university ID and have paid for their decal prior to issuance.
Employees must bring a photo ID and completed payroll deduction form or have purchased a decal from the cashier’s office and bring their receipt prior to issuance.
Full price will be charged for additional or replacement decals, Medders added.
“Replacement permits will be issued at no charge if for some reason it fails to adhere to the windshield. However, you must turn in the defective permit prior to being issued a new one,” he said. “If your second vehicle is a motorcycle, there is no charge for that permit, assuming you have already purchased a permit for your primary vehicle.”
Permits also will be available at the University Police Department, located in the University Services Center, room 125.
Permits must be properly displayed on motor vehicles and motorcycles no later than the 11th class day of the semester, after which time citations will be issued.
