CAN I PERFORM COMMUNITY SERVICE IN LIEU OF PAYING THE FINE?

Yes, you may choose to perform 4 hours of community service instead of

issuance of the system fine notice.  After 30 days, you will no longer be
eligible to request community service.  Please be advised you must complete
all 4 hours of community service within 30 days from the time you are given
your community service assignment, to have your debt be considered as paid
in full.  If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity to pay back the
community with your time, you MUST go to Portales Municipal Court to sign-
up and fill-out the Community Service paperwork which requires a signature.
Upon completion of your community service, it is YOUR responsibility to bring
your verified and completed community service documentation back to

provide to Portales Municipal Court your completed community service
documentation your fine may be forwarded to a collection agency, or the City
may pursue all other available remedies.  

WHAT IF I DO NOT PAY THE FINE OR IF I AM UNABLE TO COMPLETE
THE SUBSTITUTE COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS?

If your fine is not paid or contested by the due date, or if you don’t complete 4
hours of community service within 30 days, or if your Owner’s Affidavit or

responsibility.  If you do not pay all amounts due, your debt may be
forwarded to a collection agency, or the City may pursue all other available
remedies.
