Greenport Village board members have considered taking action to get people to pay their parking tickets, according to a report from Newsday this week.
Mayor David Nyce and the board have proposed implanting a surcharge on unpaid tickets. Those who ignore tickets are looking at another $100 after 30 days, $200 after 60 days and $300 after 90 days or more. A public hearing was held this week and the law could pass next month.
A proposal to install parking meters in the village was voted down in March of 2012.
