Make a Payment
You may make the following payments via E-pay to the City of Carbondale Police Department:
Release of Vehicles
E-pay payments do not guarantee the release of a vehicle and other holds, such as a law-mandated 12 hour DUI hold or an insurance hold, may still apply. The registered owner of a vehicle must still come to the police department to obtain the towed vehicle release receipt to take to the tow agency or authorize a third party to do so by completing and returning a notarized original Authorization to Release Impounded Vehicle form (PDF). You will still be responsible for any fees owed to the tow agency.
