Augusta city leaders are debating a plan to make it easier to pay a traffic ticket.
An Augusta Commission committee agreed to move forward with creating a state court traffic violations bureau. The idea is to make it easier to pay traffic fines without having to spend the day in front of a judge. It would cost the city $150,000 to pay four new employees for the clerk, and make some office renovations.
"Oh I'm going to definitely need the Commission's help on this it is not in my current budget so I'm asking for their approval now," says Elaine Johnson, the Clerk of Court. "It would be a big benefit for the public," she added.
If the full Commission approves the move next week, the plan is to have the traffic bureau up and running by January.
