Mount Angel Municipal Court is offering a one time only amnesty program starting Oct. 15.
From Oct. 15 through Jan. 31, 2019, anyone with overdue fines can receive one-time forgiveness on a portion of the amount when the payment is made in full.
Overdue fines are defined as those that are currently under suspension status and/or have been sent to the collection agency and are older than one year as of Oct. 15.
Qualifying participants will receive 50 percent of the total balance due. Reductions will not be given for partial payments.
