Flagler Clerk of Courts offers discount for tickets, fines, fees during ´Operation Green Light'
November 5, 2020 – The office of the Flagler County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller is prepared to give those who have overdue traffic tickets or court fines and fees a discount of at least 40 percent for two weeks.
“We are offering this program to help our residents who have tickets, fines and fees that are in collection,” said Court Clerk and Comptroller Tom Bexley. “This may allow some to restore their suspended driving privileges once the outstanding fines and late fees are paid.”
This special program, dubbed “Operation Green Light,” is available for two weeks only – from November 9 through November 20.
While late fees will not be waived, anyone paying tickets, fines and fees within this time period will be spared the costs of collections surcharges.
“These charges can be considerable,” Bexley said. “It can be as much as $80 on a $200 speeding ticket for going 10 to 15 mph over the speed limit.”
Those who are uncertain about whether or not they owe money to the Flagler Clerk of the Circuit Court can do a name search on the website: www.flaglerclerk.com.
“Operation Green Light” is a go between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (closed noon to 1 p.m. for lunch) in the first floor Central Receipting Office, Kim C. Hammond Justice Center, 1769 E. Moody Boulevard, Building 1, Bunnell. The office will stay open late – until 6 p.m. – on Tuesday, November 10, and again on Thursday, November 19 to accommodate those who can’t make it during normal business hours.
The office will be closed on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11.
Payments will be accepted in cash, check, money order or major credit card. Third-party checks will not be accepted. Phone and online payments will also be accepted.
Suspended driving privileges cannot be restored to drivers who have overdue tickets in another county, an expired driver’s license or other misdemeanor offenses that would make them ineligible.
