The date for Project Amnesty to kick off nears. Project Amnesty will be held February 1, 2018 through March 31, 2018 for anyone with outstanding warrants or fines dated on or before December 31, 2017. This is only the third amnesty program for the City of Ponca City’s Municipal Court since 2003.
During Project Amnesty, citizens may take advantage of a 30% reduction on all outstanding fines and warrants due to the Municipal Court, if paid in full. No installment payments will be accepted. No discount is granted on court ordered restitution. Municipal Court will not accept personal checks, but will accept cash, credit card, money orders, and cashiers’ checks.
Police Officers will continue to serve warrants during Project Amnesty, so those with outstanding warrants are encouraged to take advantage of the program before they are arrested. A listing of all outstanding City warrants can be found on the City of Ponca City’s website at www.poncacityok.gov under Municipal Court.
