Green Island woman Cody Sheridan sent photos to the Otago Daily Times of the vehicle parked near an area where the council handed out tickets to customers of the cafe in which she worked.
Ms Sheridan said the vehicle was parked outside the cafe in Main South Rd for about an hour between 2pm and 3pm yesterday.
It was by a bus stop, which forced one bus to park at an angle.
Ms Sheridan said the DCC employee was in the cafe in which she worked, ''having coffee and a catch-up with a guy''.
''Our customers have parked further back on those same yellow lines and been ticketed by the DCC,'' Ms Sheridan said.
''It's just a kind of pot-kettle-black scenario.''
Ms Sheridan also sent photos to the council.
The council told the Otago Daily Times late yesterday: ''We will be following this up to find out who is responsible and what the circumstances were.
''We expect our staff to drive and park legally and responsibly.
''DCC vehicles are treated like any other vehicles in terms of parking infringements.''
