Do you have an outstanding ticket? The Lithonia Police Department will continue offering an amnesty program until Friday, Sept. 12, for those who have traffic tickets and outstanding warrants for traffic, property or criminal violations.
Outstanding warrants and citations can be settled with cash or money order at the Lithonia Police Department, 6980 Main St. in Lithonia. Payments will be accepted Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, except on July 5.
The Police Department says Lithonia has about 360 outstanding warrants and 850 outstanding citations. The amnesty program is a plus for violators because during this period, the Lithonia Municipal Court is waiving the $470 fee for arrest warrants and the $160 fee for failure to appear in court.
City officials say failure to take advantage of the amnesty period could result in arrest. For more information and exact payment amount, call 770-482-8747.
