I had been hoping to write a post about various scintillating topics today but instead find my writing time absorbed by correspondence with the Office of the Parking Clerk in The City of Lynn, a charming hamlet to the north of us. So, since I have run out of time I give you my parking letter:
Office of the Parking Clerk
City of Lynn
Lynn City Hall – Room 102
Lynn, MA 01902
You will see from the attached document and copy of check #
3027 that I had attempted to pay this parking fine on March 24, 2012. I received the ticket on March 12, 2012
as I was in Lynn shopping at Zimman’s, which I am sorry to say, does not seem
to have the same selection it used to.
I left Zimman’s and discovered that my meter had run out and that
I had received a parking ticket. I put the
ticket in my purse and have never seen it since. Once I realized I had lost the original ticket, I called
your office twice to find out the amount that I owed. Both times I was told that there was no record of my
ticket. The lady I spoke with on
the second occasion gave me your address and said I could send a check if I
wanted. As you will see that check
was returned to me by your office on March 27, 2012.
The letter I received two days ago dated 6/12/2012 headed
**Drivers License and Registration Non-renewal Action Pending** inviting me to
appear before the hearing officer on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 if I do not send
$20 before then says “Final Notice” on it. To be clear, this is the first I have heard from the
Office of the Parking Clerk, City of Lynn since my original check was returned
on March 27, 2012.
Additionally it says that my ticket V59737 was issued 04/02/12 at 12:39
PM. As mentioned above, I was not
in Lynn that day but an enclosing $20 for my violation of March 12, 2012.
