Got an unpaid ticket? Misdemeanor warrant? Seattle wants to help
SEATTLE - If you’ve got an outstanding warrant or ticket in the city of Seattle, Friday is the day to get some help clearing it up - and you can get help for other social services at the same time.
Outstanding warrants and unpaid tickets can often be a legal hurdle for people trying to move forward in their life, so Friday’s outreach event might help.
Seattle city leaders are asking Municipal Court judges to help people resolve their misdemeanor warrants for low-level crimes like driving with a suspended license.
Friday’s event will help community members resolve warrants, as well as learn about options to deal with unpaid tickets.
People can also get relicensing help, get a referral to a public defender or access support services through the Court Resource Center.
The event is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Delridge Community Center in West Seattle.
People will also be able to get help with social services. No appointment is needed - just show up.
