sangamon County Rakes In Half-Million Worth Of Uncollectible Fines


Two Sangamon County officials are touting their success in bringing in nearly half-a-million dollars in fines that had been written off as “uncollectible.”

 

Circuit Clerk Tony Libri and State’s Attorney John Milhiser say by hiring a revenue recovery firm out of Chicago, they have been able to collect over $463,000 in fines that were assessed for speeding, seat belt violations and other traffic offenses.

 

The company is paid out by a share of the money it brings in. The two officials… both of whom are seeking re-election next month… say they hope to expand the effort to include fines for DUI and other misdemeanors and felonies.
