 Motorists who park in Sierra Madre are going to have to start abiding by the rules or pay the price.

 Inter-Con Security Systems has been hired by the city to patrol the streets of Sierra Madre, looking 
for parking violators.

Development Services, the city manager and council deemed it in the best interest of Sierra Madre to 
contract out services for ticketing those who violate the city’s parking ordinances.

responsible for the same tasks in seven other nearby cities including Pasadena.

number of citations will increase. According to the information presented to the council, Sierra Madre 
currently issues around seven parking tickets a day. That number is expected to double with the new 

 The revenue generated by the increased issuance of tickets is expected to cover the $64,000 cost of 
the contract with Inter-Con.
