Your next parking ticket could help a local kid get a special gift this holiday season.
Council supported a new initiative which will allow all parking tickets to be paid off with a new toy. The toy or toys must be equal to or have greater value then the fine.
Unfortunately for drivers who get a ticket in November, this will only account for parking infractions, timed parking and winter maintenance zone tickets between December 1st and 15th.
All tickets must be paid on either December 16 or 19. Tickets not paid on these two dates will have to pay the old fashioned way.
All toys can be dropped off, along with a receipt, at the Timberlea Detachment Front Counter.
All the toys gathered will be given to the Fort McMurray Salvation Army who will then hand them out to kids, benefiting the most ahead of Christmas.
