TULSA, OK -- If you have an over-due parking ticket, now is the time to pay up.

Mayor Kathy Taylor has announced an amnesty period from April 6-24 for people to pay their late parking tickets without late fees or court costs.

Tulsa Municipal Courts officials say that there are $2.2 million in unpaid parking tickets in the city.

Payment of outstanding parking citations may be made at the cashier's windows at City Hall in the One Technology Center, 175 E. 2nd St. Payments can be made in cash, money order, personal check or with Mastercard or Visa credit and debit cards.

Anyone who does not know the citation numbers or how many tickets are outstanding can go to the cashier's window with license tag information and the cashier can locate unpaid citations for the vehicle tag number.

Vehicles already declared public nuisances under city ordinances and placed on the list for towing will be removed from the tow list upon payment of citations.

Any vehicle with two or more outstanding parking citations may be declared a public nuisance and may be booted or towed and impounded until fines, late fees and court costs are paid.

Following the amnesty period, the City will begin an intense effort to collect outstanding parking citations.
