Welcome to the WVSU Parking Appeals Committee Web Site!
The WVSU Parking Appeals Committee and its Functions
The West Virginia State University Parking Appeals Committee is an impartial body of university students and University employees who make recommendations to the WVSU Director of Public Safety about parking violations that are appealed. The recommendations are accepted, denied, or remanded for further information by the WVSU Director of Public Safety in compliance with WVSU Board of Governors Policy 38. Those who have been issued permits have agreed, by signing their permit applications, to abide by all University parking and traffic regulations.
The WVSU Parking Appeals Committee consists of two faculty members plus one alternate, two staff members plus one alternate, and two students plus one alternate. All are elected by its peers or executive committees and serve one year terms.
The Director of Public Safety will receive recommendations from the Chair of this committee on a monthly basis. In months where there are no meetings, or where there are not appeals, the WVSU Director of Public Safety will be notified that this is the case.
The WVSU Parking Appeals Committee meets monthly (Second Thursday of the month @ Jones Hall Conference Room from 12:30 p.m. to 1:25 p.m.) to address parking appeals made by students, staff and faculty. The Parking Appeals Committee is responsible for submitting recommendations to the Director of Public Safety to suggest decisions on parking violation appeals. You must be invited by the committee to attend the parking appeal’s committee monthly meeting. There will be absolutely no walk-ins for adjudication.
The WVSU Parking Appeals Committee welcomes comments and suggestions to improve University parking and those may also be passed along to the WVSU Public Safety Director if the committee sees benefit. Each committee member has an obligation and a responsibility to provide fair and equitable decisions to all University parking concerns. The Director of Public Safety will also receive recommendations if membership vote results in a tie. Though the Director of Public Safety will often accept the committee’s recommendation, there may be times when the committee members will not be aware of legal requirements that will necessitate a non-acceptance. The WVSU Director of Public Safety will uphold the regulations of the State of West Virginia and West Virginia State University.
If the decision of the appeal is negative, then the parties will have thirty days to pay the ticket, or the ticket will go to collections.
Parking appeals committee meetings will not occur in the months of June, July and August.
Administrative Hearings Officer
Appeals will be first reviewed by the Chair of the Parking Appeals Committee. Only submissions on the WVSU Public Safety Parking Appeals website will be considered by the committee. No other communications about a ticket dispute will be accepted by the chair.
Parking Ticket Appeals
Individuals, who disagree with a parking citation that was issued to them by West Virginia State University, are afforded the right to appeal the violations to the University Parking Appeals Committee. Tickets must be reviewed by the Committee within 30 (thirty) days from the date the ticket was issued. The committee will screen the tickets.
Individuals attending Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College and/or working for entities leasing space or visiting the WVSU must abide by the WVSU Board of Governors Policy 38 and the laws of West Virginia.
