Parking now enforced

Jared Thomson

With each new semester at Los Medanos College comes the need for a new parking permit. The Fall 2012 parking permit is available now exclusively online through WebAdvisor.

Students will need a semester permit if they intend to park at any lot on the Pittsburg campus as well as any other Contra Costa Community College campus lot for the remainder of the year. LMC’s Brentwood Center offers free parking daily.

LMC offers a grace period of free parking during the first week of school. Since the semester began on a Friday, the grace period was extended to Saturday, Aug. 25. The semester permit is only valid for the Fall 2012 semester. The cost of a parking permit is $40 for automobiles and $25 for motorcycles and motorized scooters, while students with the Board of Governors fee waiver only pay $20.

Students have the option of purchasing a single-day pass from the parking lot ticket machines for $3, however, even if students are only enrolled in courses for one day in a whole week, the cost of daily permits are greater than the cost of a semester permit.

LMC’s police services routinely patrol the lots looking for vehicles without a permit. These vehicles will receive a ticket violation of $40.

Visit losmedanos.edu for more information and order your permit through WebAdvisor via the InSite Portal. Students without internet access may use computers available on campus.

To pay with cash, students can print out a voucher on specific computers located outside of the cashier’s window, and in the EOPS department. These vouchers must be brought to the cashier’s office where the cash payment can be made. Permits are delivered through the mail, but a temporary permit valid for seven days can be printed out after the purchase.
