Amnesty Program Ends Soon

There are only two days left if you want to participate in the city's amnesty program. The program is designed to let citizens clear traffic warrants from their records without the fear of being arrested.

When this initiative started, the city was targeting some 23,000 outstanding warrants, we're told the response has been slow. "So far I've been a bit disappointed at least in the turnout as far as the numbers of people I've seen here, both in the regular hours and these extended hours. We were open last Saturday morning, of course we had snow and bad weather and then we were open last night and we had a strong flurry but then it died off," said Municipal Court Judge Robert Doty.

There is still time to take care of your warrants. The Municipal Office will hold regular hours on Monday and then the last day to clear your record is Tuesday, with the office staying open until 8 p.m.
