Abstract

"City" piece about people who owe $3.3 million in parking fines to the city of Portland, who will have their records wiped clean when they receive new license plates as mandated by a state law, which requires Mainers to turn in their old lobster plates for the new chickadee places beginning in July 1999. Bob Ganley, Portland city manager, said the city went through the same financial fiasco 10 years ago during the switch to the lobster plates. But Rebecca Wyke, Maine's assistant secretary of state, said her staff is trying to find a way to cross-reference old plate numbers, which carry the correct name and address of the prior offender, with the computer database of new tags.
