Columbus begins parking ticket amnesty program


Ryan Poe



In an effort to collect about $7,000 owed the city in outstanding parking tickets, Columbus Municipal Court mailed about 160 notices today of an upcoming amnesty. 


The notices informed parking ticket offenders that they could pay their outstanding tickets without court costs and contempt of court fines at Municipal Court from Oct. 6 at 1:30 p.m. to Dec. 2. 


After Dec. 2, in addition to their parking tickets, offenders would have to pay a contempt of court fine of $396, and court costs. 


The Columbus police warrant detail will begin actively pursuing and arresting offenders after the amnesty period. 


A similar amnesty program for outstanding Municipal Court fines not including parking tickets, held from February through April, netted the city more than $430,000, officials said. crack
