Riley said both residents and visitors requested the option to pay parking tickets through the city's website.

"The city is always looking for opportunities to improve services," Riley said. "We hope this service will prove to be a convenient way for those with parking citations to make their payment."

Online payments bring the number of methods of payment to four.
