Got a few old parking citations in your glove box accumulating fees? The City of Huntington Park is offering a parking ticket amnesty program that will allow anyone with outstanding parking violations issued by the City to pay their ticket with no late fees. The program is open to anyone with unpaid parking tickets issued in the City of Huntington Park since April of 2009. However, the amnesty program is only open for 60 days: February 1, 2014, through April 1, 2014.

Delinquent parking tickets (i.e. tickets more than 30 days past-due) who do not take advantage of this amnesty program will be sent to a collection agency and will have their assessed late fees reinstated. “This is a great opportunity for anyone who received a parking ticket from us to clean it up and get it off their books and ours in the new year,” said City Manager René Bobadilla.
The City is offering several easy ways to pay for delinquent tickets during this amnesty period:
1. Online at www.huntingtonpark.org
2. By telephone (866) 470-3086
3. In-person at City Hall, located at 6550 Miles Ave., from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mon-Thu.
4. By regular mail: Send a check or money order to:

Any ticket issued in the City of Huntington Park on or after April 1, 2009 is eligible in this amnesty program. City Councilmember Karina Macias added, “The Parking Ticket Amnesty Program gives people an opportunity to pay their delinquent parking tickets without late fees or penalties and helps motorists rectify any DMV or driver’s license issues related to unpaid parking tickets. We estimate there are 40,000 delinquent parking tickets eligible for our amnesty program.”
The City will be communicating the program widely to inform as many people as possible via local advertisements, website, direct mail and community notices.
