Moffett is offering amnesty to those for whom a warrant has been issued for not paying fines, Moffett Police Chief Riley Brooks said Wednesday.
The amnesty program will run from the present through March 31, Brooks said. He explained the Moffett Town Council approved the amnesty program on Tuesday.
By paying the fine during the amnesty period, those with warrants will save $200, Brooks said.
“We will drop the warrant fee of $200 for those who pay their original fine,” Brooks said. “And if they pay their fine they will be able to get their driver’s license reinstated.”
Those with a warrant for not paying fines have had their driver’s license suspended by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (ODPS).
Brooks explained those who pay their fines are issued a paid receipt by the Moffett court clerk. That receipt is then submitted to the (ODPS) to get the driver’s license reinstated.
Brooks said, “This gives them a chance to get their life back in order.”
For more information on paying the fines contact the Moffett court clerk at 918-875-3066.
To pay the fine visit the Moffett court clerk at the Moffett Police Station between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Brooks said the amnesty program is not for those who are already enrolled in a payment plan for fines.
