How to Pay Parking Tickets and Other Ordinance Violations
We've made it quick and easy for you to pay citations online. Submit the form below within 30 days of receiving a citation from a Lake County Forest Preserve Ranger Police Officer, and we'll take care of the rest.
60 Days to Pay
To avoid a late fee, make your payment within 30 days of your citation date using the form below. You can also call or visit our Operations and Public Safety Facility in Lake Villa. See your citation for details.
NOTE: If you are making a payment for a citation written more than 30 days ago, please add the required $10 late fee to your payment (total amount paid should equal $40). If you fail to include the $10 late fee, your citation will NOT be considered paid in full and an outstanding balance will remain.
If we haven't received your payment within 60 days of your citation date, your account will be charged a $20 administrative fee and sent to collections. You will need to contact the collection agency directly to reconcile your payment.
For questions, or to make other payment arrangements, call our Ranger Police Department, 847-968-3404, 6:30 am–3 pm, weekdays.
