City to allow parking tickets to be paid with Toys for Tots donation
October 23, 2019
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.
