Residents of the City of Bayonne may apply for a parking permit, display this permit in

result of employment within the relevant zone should collect and submit collectively the necessary
information and documentation in support of his/her employees' applications

issued. All others must pay $150 for a new sticker.
Violations cost $58 per infraction.
