From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 20–24, the Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller will host its annual Operation Green Light event to assist those who have a suspended driver’s license, are on the verge of losing their license, or are in past-due collections in saving money on some delinquent fines and fees.
This yearly event is intended to help you get back on track if you’ve fallen behind on paying your past-due court obligations, according to Gary Cooney, Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller. “Through providing incentives for full payment, lowering the amount of the fees outstanding, or establishing a payment plan, our goal is to help consumers get their driver’s license reinstated or avoid having it suspended.”
424 cases were handled at the last event, and a total of $52,842 in past-due payments were recovered, with $40,872 being dropped from collections.
