Dear PoPville – Can a Private Company Issue a Parking Ticket?

Dear PoPville,

If you happen to go CVS on Rhode Island Ave by Home Depot, be aware that if you don’t park INSIDE the Colonial Parking lot you will be ticketed $25 by Colonial Parking.

There are some street parking spaces behind the building and even though it was 9:00 PM, I came back to find a parking ticket issued by Colonial Parking. I went to the DMV website and there’s no record of that ticket.

Is this even legal? it was not issued by the city but by Colonial parking.
