People with parking ticket fees in the Town of Brookhaven are about to get a steep discount.

Starting on May 15 until June 30, the town will be rolling out an amnesty program for unpaid parking tickets.

Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine and the Town Board announced this week that the Brookhaven Parking Violations Bureau will offer a 50% reduction in overdue and/or outstanding fines and penalties for summonses issued prior to April 15.

“This program gives people the opportunity to pay the fine at a discount and clear their debt without the need for a hearing,” said Supervisor Romaine. “I urge anyone who has not paid their fines to do so as soon as possible and take advantage of the discount.“

Residents can pay their tickets at www.BrookhavenNY.gov/Amnesty or by check using the drop box in the lobby of town hall.

“When the amnesty program ends, we will pursue those who continue to ignore their responsibility and they will be required to pay the fine with significant penalties,” Romaine added.

This program is estimated to generate $75,000 in revenue for the town.
