Farmingville, NY – Supervisor Ed Romaine has announced that the Town of Brookhaven’s Parking Violations Amnesty Program will run on February 15 through March 15, 2023. The program allows for a 50% discount on all overdue or outstanding parking violations that are paid during this time. Violations issued after December 31, 2022 are not eligible for the discount. The number of unpaid tickets eligible for the Town’s Parking Violations Amnesty Program is 11,884, totaling more than $3.5 million. Letters from the Town will be mailed in February to people with outstanding violations who are eligible for the program. Payment can be made in-person at Brookhaven Town Hall, by mail or online at BrookhavenNY.Gov/Amnesty.
Supervisor Romaine said, "The Town’s Parking Violations Amnesty Program gives people the opportunity to pay the fine at a discounted rate and clear their debt without the need for a hearing. I urge anyone who has not paid their fines to do so and take advantage of the discount. When the Amnesty Program ends, we will pursue those who continue to ignore their responsibility and they will be required to pay the entire fine with significant penalties."
The Parking Violations Bureau is responsible for processing the citations issued by the Town's Code Enforcement personnel, Fire Marshals, Suffolk County Police, Suffolk County Sheriff's Department, Railroad Police and Brookhaven Town Bay Constables. Tickets can be issued for a variety of reasons, including such violations as unauthorized parking in handicapped parking spots or parking illegally in fire zones. The Town of Brookhaven Traffic Court meets to adjudicate summonses that are challenged. For more information about the Town's Parking Violations Amnesty program, call 451-TOWN (8696).
