Malfunctioning Meters

If you have experienced a problem with a parking meter, you may report the malfunction by calling 817-392-1234. You will need to know the four-digit meter number located on either the front and/or back of the meter. If you deposited a coin in the meter and it did not register any time, and if there are not any other signals displayed, you are still responsible for ensuring that there is time on the meter before leaving your vehicle.
