Mission Municipal Court offers amnesty period
Failure to appear and warrant fees to be waived
Mission, TX– If citizens are looking to clear up a municipal warrant or an outstanding ticket, the City of Mission is ready to help them out.
The Mission Municipal Court will host a special amnesty program beginning Friday Nov. 1 and running through noon on Nov. 27. Fines must be paid in full and failure to appear and warrant fees will be waived.
“Amnesty is a tremendous benefit to the public because it allows them an opportunity to come in to the court to take care of their case without fear of being arrested and at the same time save some money,” Municipal Court Judge Jonathan Wehrmeister said.
Payments can be made in person Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. For those who cannot pay their ticket in full, the court is still encouraging residents to go by, without fear of being arrested, and make alternate payment arrangements.
“We urge our citizens to take advantage of this amnesty period,” Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña said. “It is the perfect opportunity for people to pay unresolved tickets at a reduced rate and clear those outstanding warrants.”
Residents may contact the Mission Municipal Court at 956-584-5150 for more information on the amnesty period.
