Amnesty period approaching for Greenville citizens


Greenville – Greenville residents have only a few days remaining to clear up any outstanding fines.

When the amnesty period began Aug. 30, there were more than 1,200 names on the outstanding warrant list of persons, who owed more than $1.3 million in outstanding fines. Since then, only about $18,000 had been collected and 122 warrants cleared.

Those who pay their outstanding balances prior to the upcoming warrant round-up will avoid arrest, and can save money by avoiding a warrant fee and the cost of posting a bond.

Those with outstanding warrants can call the Greenville Municipal Court at 903-457-3129 or visit in person at 3000 Lee Street.
