Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you've ever had a parking ticket in Fargo, there is a good chance that it was not written by the police.

If you've ever had a parking ticket in Fargo, there is a good chance that it was not written by the police. Parking tickets can actually be handed out by about 10 different agencies in Fargo - from a private security company the city has hired, to public works, to high school security. NDSU is one of the largest ticker writers in town. All these issuing agencies make it difficult when people have questions about tickets.

Tracy Walvatne – Fargo Parking Commission: “If you have an issue or question about your ticket you call in and it goes into the auditor’s office. Their primary function isn't necessarily to answer questions about people's parking tickets, so it's a lose-lose right now.”

The Parking Commission is exploring the idea of making a position that will see one person oversee the tickets from all agencies.
