The Hamilton County Park District recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the Armed Forces in defense of our country. As a way to thank service men and women, two discount programs are available.
Free Motor Vehicle Permit
Current Hamilton County residents, who have a 100% service-related disability as determined by the VA, or are a former prisoner of war, or a Medal of Honor recipient, may apply for free motor vehicle permits. Eligible veterans will receive two annual motor vehicle permits by mail for a two-year period. Veterans are encouraged to reapply every two years.
To apply for this program, print and complete the application form. Also include proof of Hamilton County residency (last property tax statement or recent utility bill) and service eligibility (copy of VA documentation of disability, POW, or Medal of Honor status). Mail the completed application and documentation to:
