GREENSBORO — An appeals court says a North Carolina city can collect old parking fines and a Greensboro lawyer who had appealed says he has paid his back tickets.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Wednesday that the decision by the state Court of Appeals overturned a local judge who said the city of Greensboro didn’t have authority to go after drivers with unpaid tickets.

Attorney Kevin Morse was sued in 2007 by the city over more than $2,300 in unpaid tickets. Morse argued the city waited too long to sue, but the court said the one-year statute of limitations didn’t apply to civil fines.

Body

There were some significant votes out of Wilmington City Council Tuesday night.

Council approved amending its travel policy after council members and some of their spouses went to Washington, DC, in March for a conference on taxpayer dollars.

Among the changes, the city will no longer pay for spouses’ lodging or meals. Council members will only be reimbursed for the single-room rate, and no luxury room rates will be reimbursed.

Also at the meeting, council approved the budget for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. Mayor Saffo said the budget will be $80 million. That is $6 million less than the current budget.
