LICENSE AGREEMENT OF
BIRMINGHAM PARKING AUTHORITY

  1. The Birmingham Parking Authority (herein called the Authority) hereby grants to the Licensee the privilege of parking by the month in the parking facility of the Authority for a period of one month, continuing from month to month thereafter until this license is terminated by either party in the manner provided in Sections 6 or 10 below.

 

  1. In consideration of the license the Authority hereby grants, the Licensee shall pay to the Authority a monthly fee as described in the parking application for each parking space specified (or such other monthly fee as the parties hereto may mutually agree to in writing by amendment to this paragraph 2) payable at the Authority’s office located at 1732 5th Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203, or such other place as the Authority may direct. Payment shall be in advance, on or before the first day of each month (except that the monthly fee shall be prorated on a standard thirty (30) day month basis if the license becomes effective on any day other than the first day of a calendar month, and shall be payable upon execution of this license agreement).

 

  1. If the monthly fee is not paid in full on or before the 10th day of the month, the Licensee agrees to pay a delinquent service charge of 10% of the amount due, in addition to the monthly fee. Payments for customers enrolled in AutoPay will be processed 5 business days before the due date of each monthly invoice. If the Licensee elects to set up automatic monthly payments either by credit card or ACH and the payment is declined or rejected, the customer is subject to the 10% service charge if payment is not submitted prior to the 10th day of the month. If the account becomes (1) month past due, this license shall be revoked and shall terminate and the cardtrol parking card of the Licensee shall be locked out of the parking control computer system, and Licensee will be unable to gain admittance to the parking facility. The Authority shall not be required to give the Licensee any notice of such revocation termination or lockout.  In the event legal action is instituted to collect such past due monthly fees and delinquent service charges, Licensee agrees to pay the cost of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees.

 

  1. If the Licensee loses the cardtrol parking card furnished by the Authority or if the cardtrol parking card becomes damaged, the Licensee will pay the Authority $10.00 for a replacement card. Upon the termination of this license, the Licensee will not be required to return the cardtrol parking card to the Authority.

 

  1. The Licensee will use the cardtrol parking card to enter and depart from the parking facility. If the Licensee pulls a ticket to admit a vehicle into the parking facility, then the amount owing for such vehicle when the vehicle departs shall be the amount owed according to the ticket.  The cardtrol parking card is non-transferable and if anyone other than the Licensee is found using the cardtrol parking card to enter or exit the parking facility, such use shall be grounds for the Authority to cancel the cardtrol parking card and to revoke and terminate the license hereby granted without further notice.

 

  1. The Licensee shall abide by all posted rules located in the parking facility. The Authority has the discretion to immediately terminate this license for repeated violations of these posted rules by the Licensee, Licensee’s guests, employees, or invitees.

 

 

  1. The Authority will not be responsible for injury of the Licensee or the Licensee’s guests, employees or invitees, or for loss of, or damage to any vehicle while in the parking facility, and Licensee assumes all risk of such injury, loss or damage, and agrees to indemnify and hold the Authority harmless from loss or expense arising there from, including attorney fees incurred in litigation with third parties or with Licensee.

 

  1. If the Authority terminates or revokes the license hereby granted for any cause which is above specified as a ground of termination or revocation, the Authority shall not be obligated to return any fee or any part of any fee the Licensee has heretofore paid for prior or current use. In the event the Licensee pays the entire amount due at the beginning of this agreement, in that the agreement is on a month to month basis the Authority shall refund any sums paid for future use.

 

  1. In the instance that a Special Event in the City of Birmingham requires the use by the general public of the parking facility referred to in this agreement, the Authority shall grant to the undersigned licensee the privilege of the Special Event, or as otherwise indicated at the discretion of the Authority.  This assignment of parking facilities during Special Events does not alter Section 1-7 of this Agreement during the period of time that the licensee is using the aforementioned alternate parking facility.

 

  1. In addition to the termination provided for above, the Authority may terminate this license by giving to the Licensee not less than thirty (30) days written notice of termination which shall be mailed to the Licensee by United States mail, first-class, postage prepaid, addressed to the Licensee. The Licensee may terminate this license at any time by submitting a notice of termination to the Authority in writing, via email to accounting@bhamparking.com, or in person at the Authority’s office located at 1732 5th Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203 . The termination will be effective as of the date the notice is received by the Authority. A refund of prepaid parking fees, if any, will be prorated as of the date the termination notice is received.  On any termination by Licensee after the 20th of any month, the Authority shall not be obligated to return any fee or any part of any fee the Licensee has heretofore paid to the Authority for the month in which the termination occurs. All fees paid for future use will be refunded.
