City collects $39,160 through parking amnesty program
YOUNGSTOWN — The city’s clerk of courts received $39,160 through a parking amnesty program that allowed those with unpaid tickets in Youngstown to pay tickets without late fees.
Between April 29 and Saturday, people with tickets were allowed to pay the original $10 fine with the $20 late fees waived.
The $39,160 amount is $10 a ticket for 3,916 unpaid tickets. At $30, that figure is $117,480.
Also, the court will see that amount increase because its employees are still opening mail and processing online credit-card payments, said Sarah Brown-Clark, clerk of courts.
Now that the amnesty is done, Brown-Clark said she is proving a list to the police department of vehicles with at least $500 in parking fees to have them towed.
