City of Spencer to Forgive Tickets in Exchange for School Supplies


The city of Spencer is offering to forgive unpaid parking tickets in exchange for school supplies.

Spencer, located in Roane County, announced the deal Tuesday on Facebook, according to the Associated Press.

The city will clear parking tickets for anyone who brings in items from a list of supplies, which includes crayons, pencils, pens, loose-leaf paper and cleaning wipes.

Supplies can be dropped off at the Spencer municipal building. Spencer city leaders are accepting one item per ticket.

Tickets issued through Friday are eligible for the program.

Spencer is no pioneer when it comes to this kind of trade — last month, Wheeling launched a Pencils (and More) for Parking program that will last until August 14, according to the Wheeling Intelligencer.
