If you have outstanding tickets or fines with the city, you’ll want to pay them next week or risk facing a trip to jail.

Today, local authorities announced the state’s Annual Great Warrant round up will begin February 23 to March 9.
Starting Monday, February 18 you’ll have only a week this year to go by the municipal court to pay or make arrangements to pay those tickets or fines.

Red postcards announcing the amnesty period have already been mailed out to folks with outstanding tickets.

“Our goal is to help people who have warrants to resolve their case, it’s not to be arrested. So, that’s why the court is a safe haven court, which means if you have a warrant, even if it’s during the warrant roundup, if you come in you’re not going to be arrested as long as you’re resolving your case, one way or another,” says Gilberto Hernandez, Municipal Court Director.

If you want to avoid long lines at the municipal court, you can pay your ticket online.
