The Parking Citation Amnesty program will continue through October to encourage payment of parking citations at least 90 days past due. By participating in the program, you will save $15.00 with the late fee being waived. “As the initial program wrapped up at the end of September, we noticed some good momentum with people paying their old citations,” said Parking Manager Mark Lyons. “Also, our seasonal residents are beginning to return, so this will give them an opportunity to learn about the program and participate.”
To be eligible, your parking ticket must be at least 90 days past due. The City of Sarasota will forgive the $15 late fee. Payments must be received by Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
