Out of the blue (no prior warning letters), I get a “pay up or else” letter from the village, which has doubled the fine since the event some nine months ago.

Well, being a good, regretfully retired individual, I went deep into my records, pulled a payment notice from Quickbooks, went to my bank, and got a printed copy of our village cashing my check (violation # on both items, all within the specified time).

So … #1 Why did I get this notice?

         #2 Why now?

         #3 Where did the money go from the original ticket?

         #4 Why no follow up warnings?

         #5 Is this happening to other “offenders,” or just me who has been summoned to pay $63 for parking in Oak Park?

Just curious if anybody else is being subjected to this.
