"People don't have to pay all at once and we will work with anyone who is making an effort to get paid up before the end of the amnesty [May 31]," Perkins said.
After the amnesty period is up, fines older than 60 days will double. For instance, a ticket written in May would not double for 60 days after being written. After 60 days, the fine will increase to twice its face value.
Tickets in the village range in fines. Perkins said, for example, over time parking is $10 while overnight parking is a $25 fine.
"Plus there are other violations like fire hydrant, no parking zones, etc.," he said.
Despite the program's need to be tweaked, there are some people who flat out disagree with the new system, Perkins said.
"There was one person who felt that since she rents downtown the village should provide parking for her at no cost. Another person felt that since he has a business in the village he and his wife should get free parking at any meter," he said.
