The city of Wilmington will allow people who got parking tickets in specific years to pay their ticket for the original fine.
The Parking Ticket Amnesty Program announced Thursday at noon will run from Friday, Jan. 1, through Jan. 31.
It gives people who were ticketed for violating parking regulations between Jan. 1, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2019, a chance to pay for parking tickets at face value without any penalties.
Only tickets issued in the years 2017, 2018,and 2019 will be eligible. Payment of the original fine amount will satisfy the full amount due, a press release said.
“These are difficult times for our constituents,” said Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki in a press release that said he was speaking from ChristianaCare Hospital, where he is recovering from emergency open heart surgery.
“The Amnesty Program provides an opportunity for people with old unpaid parking tickets to satisfy this obligation at a substantially reduced cost,” he said in the press release. “It’s a chance to start off the year with a clean slate.”
