From December 4 to 10, payments for parking tickets issued in Vernon will be donated for food services for those in need during the holidays.

The Food for Fines initiative was approved by Council October 24

During Food for Fines week, all recent or outstanding parking tickets that are not in active collections can be paid at City Hall, online, in one of the drop boxes in the downtown core or by mail, as long as the money is received between December 4 to 10.

The equivalent dollar value of all money collected during this week will be donated to agencies to be determined by Council at the December 12 regular meeting.

During a typical week, approximately $3,000 - $4,000 is collected by the City of Vernon for parking tickets.
