The City of South Fulton Municipal Court is launching its first-ever amnesty program this month. Just in time for the winter holidays and New Year, the program gives a fresh start to residents who have missed court dates, have overdue tickets or outstanding warrants.
Court officials will offer reduced fines for most delinquent traffic and non-traffic citations. However, previously adjudicated cases, capias pro fines, and parking citations are not eligible for amnesty rates.
“We encourage anyone who has delinquent court matters to take advantage of this opportunity to resolve cases,” said City of South Fulton Clerk of Court Phenix Gaston. “This is an opportunity to ease financial burden as we go into the holiday season and restore driving records.”
Those with unpaid citations who wish to participate in the amnesty program will have two opportunities. The City of South Fulton Municipal Court will hold sessions on Tuesday, December 17 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. and on December 19 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
South Fulton’s court is held in the Union City Justice Center at 5060 Union Street, Union City, Ga. 30291. Any person who resolves an outstanding traffic citation through the amnesty program will receive documentation to submit to the Georgia Department of Driver Services to assist in restoring their driving record.
