FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – For those that have parking tickets that were received from September 1, 2016 onward, you will have the chance to get rid of them soon.

From December 1 to December 19 at 12:00 p.m., you can pay for the ticket by donating a new, packaged and unwrapped toy, gift card, or cash donation in lieu of the cash value of the ticket at City Hall.

Donations will be going to the Salvation Army.

The Toys for Tickets campaign was launched in 2005 and has since had great response from the community.

According to the City, with December already here and having approached quickly,  Council took a poll by email and unanimously supported running this program again.

Mayor Lori Ackerman says the program is very important this year because of the struggles in the economy.

“This program is especially important this year as so many of our citizens are struggling. I am pleased Council was able to approve this so it could be implemented right away.”
