Officials with the El Paso Municipal Court announced Friday morning that they will offer an amnesty period giving the public an opportunity to clear any warrants and save money.
The period will run from Monday, February 24, through Saturday, March 7,
“We encourage anyone who has delinquent court matters to take advantage of this opportunity to resolve cases,” said Municipal Court Director Lilia Worrell. “The goal of our citation amnesty program is to provide people an opportunity to resolve their matters and restore their driving records.”
The Municipal Court will waive collection and/or delinquent fees to include:
- the $50 warrant fee,
- the 30 percent collection fees for active warrants and previously activated warrants, and
- the 30 percent collection and late fees for parking citations.
The citations must be paid in full during this amnesty period in order to take advantage of the cost savings.
The City is owed millions of dollars in unpaid traffic and parking tickets. To reduce the backlog of unpaid tickets, the Municipal Court encourages people to take advantage of the opportunity to pay delinquent tickets while saving money.
Citations can be paid:
- Any Municipal Court Bond Office: elpasotexas.gov/municipal-courts
- By phone: (915) 212-0232
- Online: citepayusa.com
Municipal Court Bond Offices will be open on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon during the amnesty period.
Residents can find out if they owe tickets by visiting the Municipal Court website. Names of active warrant holders will also appear in the El Paso Times, El Diario and the Municipal Courts website on Sunday, February 23.
