City Council Approves School Supplies for Tickets Program

The Las Vegas City Council has approved a new program that will allow those issued non-public safety parking tickets by the city’s Parking Services Division to pay their fine by donating school supplies. The School Supplies for Tickets program allows those issued tickets between June 10 and July 10 to make a donation instead of paying a fine. City of Las Vegas Parking Enforcement will collect the donations and will present the supplies to Project 150 on Aug. 13. Project 150 is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization that focuses on homeless and other vulnerable high-school students. The donations will benefit high school students ages 13 to 17 and will be distributed in time for the 2018-19 school year.
