"Patrols assigned areas on foot or in a vehicle to enforce parking regulations/restrictions. Issues written and computer generated parking citations and transfers citation data to centralized system. Requires a high school diploma or its equivalent. Has knowledge of commonly used concepts, practices, and procedures within a particular field. Relies on instructions and pre-established guidelines to perform the functions of the job. Little creativity and latitude is expected. Works under general supervision. Typically reports to a supervisor or manager."
So if you have a GED or high school diploma, pass a drug test and are square with the city regarding any parking tickets of your own, you should apply for the $8.50 and hour job. You will be working hours the Department of Revenue isn't staffed, which means you'll be working the graveyard shift. But a job's a job.
