Paying a Parking Citation
Parking citation payments are accepted in several ways:
- Online: https://dspayments.com/WestSacramento. The citation number (issue number) and a credit/debit card are required for online payments.
- Mail: Send a check or money order (payable to the City of West Sacramento). Mailing Address: City of West Sacramento, Utility Billing Counter, 1110 West Capitol Avenue 1st Floor, West Sacramento, CA 95691
- In person: City Hall Utility Billing Counter, 1110 West Capitol Avenue 1st Floor, West Sacramento, CA 95691. Please bring your parking citation and form of payment. Credit/debit cards, cash, money order and checks are accepted. For credit cards, a 3% service fee applies.
Important Note: If paying online, citations may be delayed from appearing in the system. If your citation is not in our system yet, please call 916-617-4589 during normal business hours for assistance with your payment.
Inability to pay a citation with the online payment system does not excuse payment of any late fees.
Payments must be received or contested no later than 21 calendar days from the citation issue date to avoid additional penalties. Instructions on how to contest or pay are also on the reverse side of the issued citation.
