RENO, NV - The City of Reno is sending letters to more than 3,300 individuals who have delinquent parking tickets, beginning August 2, 2013.
The 3,300 delinquent parking tickets represent $239,190 in money owed to the City of Reno, according to the City of Reno.
These letters are the final attempt to notify individuals with outstanding citations, and by notifying individuals once again, it is hoped that these citations will be resolved with further action being taken.
The delinquent citations date from August 2011 through April 2013, with each citation being more than 90 days overdue.
Individuals received citations if they parked in a handicapped location, had improper registration, parked in a red zone, parked in a residential parking zone without a permit and/or parked beyond the designated time, according to the City of Reno.
Individuals who receive a latter have until August 31, 2013 to submit payment.
If payment is not received, the city will take further action, such as referring the unpaid citation to a collection agency and/or filing a Notice of Nonpayment with the Department of Motor Vehicles, which may affect the ability to register your vehicle (NRS 484B.527), according to the City of Reno.
For individuals struggling to pay their balance, the City of Reno is willing to establish a payment plan. To establish an arrangement, individuals must contact the City of Reno prior to the August 31, 2013 deadline.
To establish an arrangement, individuals must visit the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall on the 2nd floor to fill out the appropriate paperwork.
