D’Iberville aims to collect $2M in fines, fees

Published 1:36 pm Thursday, December 17, 2009

The 5,700 people who collectively owe D’Iberville $2 million in fines and fees have one month to pay up before they face collection agents and possible arrest.

City Manager Michael Janus said at Tuesday’s council meeting the amnesty period will run from Jan. 1 to Feb. 1 and the city will give a 25 percent discount for payment.

After that, those who don’t pay will be charged a $30-per-month collection fee and possibly face a warrant for their arrest on contempt charges.
