MAMARONECK — Village residents will soon have a little more time to pay their parking tickets.
The Board of Trustees on Monday night unanimously approved a plan to double the waiting period for delinquent parking fines. Now, residents hit with a $20 ticket for an expired meter have 30 days to pay before the fine jumps to $40; 60 days before it rises to $80; and 90 before it reaches $160.
Under the old rule, the fine doubled every 15 days — a period that Mayor Norm Rosenblum called “too punitive.”
The new 30-day doubling period is expected to take effect in a few weeks, once state officials have approved the change.
