Youngstown’s parking-ticket amnesty program brought in $40,000 this weekend.

The program was designed to help people pay a reduced fee for past parking tickets before the city begins its new Parking Violations Bureau designed to crack down on parking fines.

Officials said had those that participated in the program paid their original fine, they would have had to pay $117,000 in fines.

“We’re initiating a Parking Violations Bureau and that will be a process that will include reports to credit bureaus, towing, booting, so we want to give people an opportunity to clear their record before we go there,” said Youngstown Clerk of Courts Sarah Brown-Clark.
