If you are behind on your payments of fines to Barberton Municipal Court, the Court has decided to extend the deadline for issuing bench warrants for those who haven't paid up, or are behind on their payments.
Barberton Municipal Courts Clerk Diana Stevenson says the amnesty program has met with overwhelming positive response, and that's been a susrprise.
" People who fall behind in those payments without making other arrangements will be dealing with the BMV.(Bureau Of Motor Vehicles). They will not allow people who have those outstanding fines who are behind on their payments to renew their license, bot their drivers license and their license plates," says Stevenson.
Stevenson says the bench warrant suspension program will be extended to March 19th. The program was implemented by the court in an effort to collect $3.4 million in delinquent unpaid criminal fines and court costs.
A Summit County Probate Court magistrate has been appointed to serve as Barberton Municipal Clerk of Courts.
Diana Stevenson got the nod from fellow Republicans over the weekend. Stevenson also worked at the Summit County Prosecutor's Office earlier in her career. She has also been a candidate in the Barberton district, losing two bids to become a judge and once for Barberton Law Director.
Republican Central Committee members in the Barberton Municipal Court district were enticed to show up to a free lunch meeting on Saturday, where there was also a drawing for one of them to win a new 42" flat panel television. It worked, according to party officials. 60 of the possible 94 people attended the meeting.
The vacancy in the clerk's office was created when former clerk Christine Croce was elected to be a judge in Barberton.
Croce is being sworn in today by Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor.
