Out of the WSB inbox, from the Seattle Municipal Court – starting May 1st, pay your unpaid tickets, and they’ll waive collection fees and interest:
Seattle court waives fees and interest on unpaid tickets
Seattle – May 1 – June 30, 2009 Seattle Municipal Court will be conducting a Collections Reduction Event for individuals with outstanding debt owed to the Court to pay off fines at a reduced cost. The court will be waiving all collection fees and accrued interest on original obligations for those who pay in full. Payments can be made in cash, by Credit/Debit cards (VISA & MasterCard), personal check, money order, cashier’s check or traveler’s check.
In most cases, payment will enable defendants to become re-licensed, where previous outstanding fines are preventing them from obtaining driver’s licenses. In addition, it may also allow citizens the ability to renew license tabs and permit defendants to voluntarily pay off fines that may otherwise result in collection activity that can be detrimental to an individual’s economic situation.
Payments can be made in the following ways:
• At the Seattle Municipal Court located at 600 5th Avenue in the Seattle Justice Center. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
• Call the phone center at (206) 684-5600.
• Mail your payment in full to:
