Registration streamlined for 2002
By Eric Rangus email@example.com
The Emory Parking and Community Services Office is instituting automatic
parking-permit renewal for 2002. So, rather than filling out a registration
form, Emory faculty and staff will simply sign their names on a log, and
their parking passes will be instantly renewed.
We wanted to make registration as painless as possible, said
Bill Collier, director of parking.
The online registration forms and paper applications of previous years
have gone away for most people. The only faculty and staff who will have
to go through the full process are those people who are registering cars
for the first time or making changes to their methods of payment.
Representatives from the parking office will be criss-crossing campus
throughout January and early February registering faculty and staff (see
box on page 7 for specific times and locations). Anyone unable to stop
by one of these locations should visit the parking office in the Lowergate
Deck before Jan. 23 to pick up his or her materials.
The renewal process will be very easy. Faculty and staff should bring
their Emory IDs to one of the distribution locations. Once there, they
need only to sign the pre-printed log, authorizing renewal, and pick up
their tags and decals. Parking fees will be automatically deducted from
their paychecks. If someone wants to change their method of payment, they
would need to complete a change card, which will also be available at
the distribution locations.
If you are already registered, theres nothing you have to
do but come by and pick up your tag, Collier said. Previously, Emory
parkers were required to fill out either an online or paper form each
year and turn it into the parking office. Most employees then received
their hang tags through campus mail. Now tags can be obtained with one
Not only is this new system going to be easier for consumers, but it
also eases the burden on parking office staff. Not only will the new system
save processing time, Collier said, but it will also allow parking office
employees to address immediate consumer needs without wading through stacks
If an employee or faculty member is not planning to renew a tag, no action
is necessary. Once 2001 tags expire Jan. 31, no further charges will be
Fees for Zone 1 parking are $336 annually, and for Zone 2 the charge is $232. That is an increase of $20 and $19, respectively, from 2001 rates. New hangtags and decals become effective Feb. 1, 2002.
