Birmingham amnesty program to start Friday

By Ashley Nix

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - An amnesty program in Birmingham will start in October for parking tickets and library fines.  

Birmingham Mayor William Bell said he hopes the plan will give people a break on fines and also bring in revenues for the city.

The amnesty program will change in November. Residents then will be able to pay off other municipal fines, like business license fees, occupational taxes, sales tax and lease tax, without penalty.

When residents are paying, any overdue fines will not be counted... only the original amount for the ticket or fine will be charged.
