The City of Batavia has an overnight parking ordinance which prohibits parking on all City streets between the hours of 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM. Realizing that there are situations when citizens may need a temporary exemption, a process has been developed for residents to request a permit.
Residents seeking permitting for three nights or less for a typical passenger car or pickup truck are encouraged to complete the electronic overnight permit application. For additional time or special circumstances, please call the Police Department at 630-454-2500. To apply for the permit, we require the vehicle's license plate number, the location in Batavia where it will be parked, and contact information for the person who is responsible for the vehicle.
Exemptions to the ordinance will be considered only if the resident does not have enough space within their garage and driveway to accommodate all their vehicles or guests' vehicles. There are no permanent exemptions. If there are unpaid ordinance violations associated with the vehicle, an overnight parking exemption will not be granted.
General Police Reports - You may fill out a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request that specifies the information for which you are seeking. Freedom of Information provides the Police Department five business days for response.
- Outdoor amplification of sound is prohibited from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. (4-4-5)
- Animals causing a high and/or prolonged level of noise can be ruled as a disturbance. Any person in possession of such an animal can be charged with disturbing the peace. (5-4B-5).
To report nuisance noise during non-business hours, please contact the Batavia Police Department at 630-454-2500.
