SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. A backlog of unpaid parking tickets from the past eight years has Sleepy Hollow looking for a way to collect what is due.
Sleepy Hollow Treasurer Sara DiGiacomo and Police Chief Gregory Camp have recommended to trustees that they hire a Tarrytown company, Complus Data , on a one-year contract to help process parking tickets and track down violations that haven't been paid.
Complus would receive 10 percent of the revenue generated from the backlogged tickets. Complus would receive 13 percent of the revenue generated from newly-issued tickets.
DiGiacomo said the village would mainly use Complus's services for the backlog of tickets. Complus would also help streamline the ticketing process from police to the courts, DiGiacomo said.
Complus would also supply parking ticket equipment that could issue tickets, take photos and electronically file ticket information as part of their package, DiGiacomo said, noting that the village has looked into buying the same items itself and found them to be too expensive.
DiGiacomo also noted that Complus was connected to national databases, which means it will be able to track down errant violations across county and state lines.
Trustees were supportive of the measure because the village hasn't been collecting all of its owed tickets.
Let's go get them, Trustee Barbara Carr said. Trustees are expected to vote on the measure next Tuesday.
