Midwest City Municipal Court is holding an amnesty program in an effort to reduce the number of outstanding warrants.
The court will decrease outstanding municipal warrant costs by half if payment is made in full. The program is open to people with municipal warrants that are at least two years old.
The amnesty program runs until the end of April.
City officials say the program encourage individuals with outstanding warrants to come forward and
resolve their legal issues. Midwest City currently has more than 12,000 outstanding municipal warrants.
“Clearing out older warrants relieves stress on our system, but it also relieves stress for those who have a warrant issued,” said Vicki Floyd, Midwest City Prosecutor. “We encourage anyone who knows that they have a warrant issued, please just to contact us and ask for help.”
Midwest City has not offered this program since February of 2012, Floyd said.
Anyone with questions about the program can call the court at (405) 739-1280.
The Midwest City Municipal Court is open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The city recently implemented new hours of operation.
