CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The city of Cincinnati announced the ‘Holiday Food for Fines Ticket Amnesty' program, on Tuesday. The program will allow those with two or fewer expired meter violations from this past year to pay one $45 ticket and, with a donation on 10 canned goods, clear the $45 late fee.

The canned goods, which must be no less than 12 ounces, will be donated to the Freestore Foodbank.

“This is a one-time chance to clear an old debt, and do good for your community at the same time,” councilman Chris Seelbach says. “In the new year, the city will begin an aggressive collection of delinquent parking tickets under a new contract with Xerox, but this holiday season you can come clean, make a donation and make a difference.”

People with no more than two past due expired meter tickets starting on Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 1, 2014 can participate in the program. Those wishing to take part in the event will need to bring a copy of the past due ticket or any item including the citation number.

The amnesty program will run from Dec. 15 through Dec. 19, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Donations will be accepted at the cashier's window on the second floor of City Hall. For more information, call 513-564-CANS (2667).
