Norwood Amnesty for unpaid fines underway

Starting on Monday, October 17th through Monday October 31st, 2011, the City of Norwood is having an amnesty period for any unpaid fines through the Norwood Clerk of Courts. During this period, any legally issued citation in Norwood through Norwood Magistrate Court may be paid at the current payout amount established by the Clerk of Court. This includes parking citations, moving violations, and minor misdemeanor citations. This does not include any charge that required a mandatory initial court appearance. All warrants, bench warrants, and doubling requirements on qualifying charges will be waived.

Individuals who have had their driver’s license forfeited must pay the forfeiture fee as required by the State of Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Anyone wanting to participate must appear in person to the Norwood Clerk of Courts between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday. If fines are not paid for parking citations, a registration block will be placed on your vehicle and you will not be able to register it. For unpaid moving violations, a forfeiture of your driver’s license may be imposed through the Bureau of Motor vehicles. For more information, please contact the Clerk of Courts at (513) 458-4535.
