CHICAGO (CBS) — A northwest suburban village will be losing revenue from parking fines, but its food pantry expects to gain hundreds of cans of food.
Try parking on the streets of Hanover Park between 2 and 6 in the morning, and you’ll probably get a parking ticket for $50.
The good news is, if you get that ticket – or almost any other parking ticket between Dec. 17 and the end of the year – you can have the fine waived if you bring 10 cans of food to the Hanover Park Police Department.
“We could have hundreds or even – dare I say – thousands of items. We’re kind of excited to see how it’s going to end up,” said Deputy Police Chief Andy Johnson.
