The Town of Marble City is offering amnesty to those who have not paid their traffic tickets or showed up for court on their scheduled dates.
A warrant is issued for those who do not pay or appear as scheduled, which doubles the original fine and adds a $10 warrant fee. When warrants are issued, the state also suspends driver’s licenses. To reactivate the license, the driver must pay the reinstatement fee. Those fees begin at $50 and go up depending on how many times the license has been suspended.
Marble City Mayor Tamara Hibbard said the Judge has authorized a 25 percent reduction for those who pay the balance of their outstanding fines during the amnesty period. Those who would like to take advantage of the offered amnesty and reduction must pay at the Marble City Court Clerk’s office at city hall. An online payment service is offered, but the court clerk must be contacted prior to payment in order to receive the 25 percent reduction.
The court clerk can be contacted at (918) 775-3002. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. The amnesty period runs from Feb. 1 to March 30.
Hibbard explained that any outstanding balances after the March 30 deadline may be turned over for collection. A 35 percent collection fee will be added to the total balance and no reduction will be applied, she said.
