Overnight Parking Permits

In order for the City to perform daily maintenance on the streets (snow plowing, street sweeping, leaf pickup), no all-night parking shall be permitted, except by vehicles displaying night parking permits or by vehicles bearing disabled plates or identification cards.

If your vehicle is disabled, you have overnight visitors, or there is some other applicable reason, you may obtain overnight parking permission for one night.

Permits are for sale from at the West Allis Police Department Records Unit, 11301 W. Lincoln Avenue between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cash, check, or debit/credit card accepted.

Parking permits may also be purchased from the City of West Allis Treasurer's Office, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Treasurer's office is at:
7525 W Greenfield Avenue
West Allis, WI 53214

Cash or checks only at this location.
