Those who receive them for excessive fines will be given a choice: they can settle their accounts or decide to go to municipal court, signing a document that says they agree to show up for the court date. Either choice will get the boot removed immediately.
"With the new process," she said, "we’re making sure any violator has has any opportunity to challenge any of those and has had legitimate parking violations."
Before the boots return, new citations must be printed, Thompson said. Also, she wants to talk with the ADDA board about an education campaign.
"I want to make sure everyone understands the new process," she said. "We want to get the word out so people will be aware the boot process is resuming.
Thompson says that long-term, the County Commission needs to revisit the parking ordinance.
