INABILITY TO PAY FINE

If you do not appeal the Court’s decision but are financially unable to pay the fine when due, you must appear at the Court’s Collections Department to complete an application for a time payment plan or community service. If you qualify for a time payment plan or community service, the Court may allow you to either pay the fine in installments or discharge the fine by performing community service.
