JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council Monday night approved authorizing a parking ticket amnesty program, which will run during the month of April.
The proposal was brought forward by Jamestown mayor Sam Teresi earlier this month. According to the mayor, nearly $500,000 is owed to the city in past due parking tickets. The parking ticket amnesty program will allow anyone who owes money to pay the face value of the original parking ticket, without having to pay any late fees or other associated penalties. The program will begin on April 1 and continue until April 30.
The last time the city held a parking ticket amnesty program was in 2009, when it netted $116,000.
