Santa Ana Extends Street Sweeping Tickets Suspension, Deadlines to Pay Business License, Dog License, PREP

Date: April, 24 2020 Category: City Manager, COVID-19

The City of Santa Ana is extending the suspension of street sweeping parking tickets through May 31 and providing a 90-day extension for business license, dog license and PREP payments.

The City is continuing its order stopping water and sewer service disconnections.

These measures by City Manager Kristine Ridge, as authorized by the City Council’s declaration of a local emergency on March 17, are intended to provide financial relief and help the public comply with the Governor’s stay-at-home order.
 

STREET SWEEPING TICKETS:
Vehicles will not be ticketed for violating street sweeping parking restrictions through May 31.

The suspension of street sweeping tickets is retroactive to March 15, so any tickets that may have been received from that date or later do not need to be paid.

All other parking and traffic rules, restrictions and permit requirements remain in effect. However, the City isn’t currently charging penalties for late payment of parking violations.
 

BUSINESS LICENSE:
Anyone who has a Santa Ana Business License Annual Tax due date of March 31 through June 30 has a 90-day extension from the due date to make the payment without penalties or interest. This extension includes business license accounts with Business Improvement District (BID) charges.

Customers can make use of our free online payment portal at www.santa-ana.org/businesstaxbillpay or they may renew by mail addressing envelopes to CITY OF SANTA ANA, PO BOX 1964, SANTA ANA CA 92702. For specific inquires on your account, please email us at BusinessTax@santa-ana.org or call us at (714) 647-5447.
 

DOG LICENSE:
Santa Ana Municipal Code requires a license for every dog over the age of 4 months that is owned, kept or harbored by, in the custody of, or under the control of any person within the city.

Those who are required to pay a dog license fee to the City of Santa Ana from March 31 through June 30 have a 90-day extension to make the payment and won’t be charged late fees or penalties.
