An online chat set for Tuesday will address parking in the District. If you have any questions or concerns, you can direct them to the directors of the departments involved.

The three primary agencies managing the parking and ticketing process in Washington are the District Department of Transportation (which places the meters), the Department of Public Works (which oversees parking enforcement) and the Department of Motor Vehicles (which handles ticket appeals). About 30 city and federal agencies can actually issue parking tickets in the District.

DDOT Director Terry Bellamy, DPW Director William O. Howland Jr. and D.C. DMV Director Lucinda M. Babers are scheduled to take part.

The chat will be on Tuesday, Feb. 7, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Head to to participate. (You can head here beforehand to send yourself an e-mail reminder before the chat.) If you can’t make the chat, head here afterward to read a transcript of the discussion.
