City extends amnesty program through September

The City of Cincinnati is extending its parking fine amnesty program through the end of September.

The program was originally scheduled to end June 30, but it has not been extended.

With almost 62,000 people owing an estimate of $12.3 million, the City is encouraging citizens to immediately pay unpaid parking tickets right away to avoid additional fines and towing.

You can check to see if you owe a fine by clicking on the Searchable Amnesty Database for Parking Fines.
