The City of Cocoa Beach does not grant payment extensions. A payment must be received within 10 days of the date the ticket was issued. Otherwise, late fees will be added, which often double the ticket fine. Additional collection fees can be added if the ticket remains unpaid after the initial late penalty is assessed.
Per City Ordinance Number 1502 your vehicle will only become eligible to be booted or towed if the vehicle has five or more delinquent tickets.
Our system is not perfect. However, there are only a limited number of reasons a citation can be dismissed by an appeal: clerical errors, payment issues, or medical emergency. What are examples of clerical errors? •The vehicle make is incorrect •The license plate number is incorrect •Errors made by citizens/visitors while paying for a parking session What’s not considered a clerical error? •If you did not see a sign or misunderstood the parking signs. •If you did not properly display the correct decal, permit or receipt. If your citation contains a clerical error please file for an appeal within 10 days of the citation issue date. To file an appeal please go to Cocoa Beach RMCPay Webpage and provide as much detail as possible - including but not limited to pictures.
Appeals are processed on case-by-case basis in the order they are received. We make every effort to resolve appeals within 24 business hours. Please be aware that if your case needs further review it may take longer to resolve the appeal. Appeal decisions will be emailed to the email address provided.
After your initial appeal, you can request a hearing with a County Court Judge within 10 days of the citation date. In order to do so, you will need to fill out a Request for Hearing form and have it notarized. Please note, the form must be received within 10 days of the citation at the Cocoa Beach City Hall. A hearing will be scheduled for you at a time a County Court Judge will determine whether a parking violation has been committed.
Please note that Pursuant to Section 316.1967, Florida Statutes, an election to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of the right to pay the penalty set forth on the citation and the County Judge may impose a fine not to exceed $100.00 ($250 for Handicap Citations), plus court costs, for a parking violation. Failure to comply with this citation within 10 days will result in an increased penalty as shown on the citation.
You may return the form in person to the Cashier in City Hall or email the form to the Finance Department.

Citations must be contested within 10 days of the date the citations are issued. Once that period of time has expired, you lose your statutory right to contest that citation. However, there are exceptions to this rule. If you are contesting your citation on the grounds that the vehicle was stolen, the vehicle no longer belonged to you at the time the ticket was issued, or the sole registered owner of the vehicle is now deceased, you have an unlimited period of time to request an Administrative Review. To Request an Administrative Review please contact: City of Cocoa Beach Attn: Finance Department - Parking P.O. Box 322430 Cocoa Beach, FL 32932-2430 PHONE: 321-868-3221
