In Hudson, we have an unsolved murder, a rash of car burglaries, house break-ins, persistent problems with drug dealing and vandalism, and the troubling matter of unpaid parking tickets. To deal with the last of those items, there were first arrests, then towing, and now the boot--all used to wrest fines from parking scofflaws--but none of these tactics seems enough. The HPD now wants to employ a collection agency to exact fines and penalties on tickets issued between 2006 and 2008. Tom Casey has the story in today's Register-Star: "HPD may enlist help to recoup ticket fees."
