Collecting Unpaid Debts:RRIVA Initiative
It's apart of a new program called the the Restitution Recovery Initiative for Victims in Alabama.
If you're one of the more than 300 people who haven't paid your court cost or traffic fines, officials say its an efficient way to collect money that's owed; especially during an ongoing budget crunch.
"Pennies add up and as bad as our judicial system is in a crisis as it relates to finances, due to budget cuts and everything else, then it will add up a lot, it could be thousands, " said Houston County Circuit Clerk, Carla Woodall.
Residents will have the chance to show up at the Houston County Courthouse on November 10th to settle their unpaid fines.
Those residents have already been notified to do so.
