City to allow parking tickets to be paid with Toys for Tots donation

City to allow parking tickets to be paid with Toys for Tots donation

On Tuesday, October 22, the Tuscaloosa City Council approved a resolution to allow certain parking fines to be paid with a donation to Toys for Tots.

During the upcoming holiday season, Tuscaloosa residents can pay off $15 city parking tickets with a toy donation to Toys for Tots. Toys valued at $10 or more will satisfy a $15 parking ticket. Toys valued at $20 or more will be accepted in place of two $15 parking tickets.

“Toys for Tots donations in lieu of parking tickets is a great way we can be innovative in our community and make a difference,” Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox says.

Participants can bring their toys to Tuscaloosa Municipal Court at 2122 6th St. between November 15 and December 15. The City requests a receipt for purchase or a price tag on the toy showing the value at $10 or more.
