Lake County Clerk’s Office to help those wishing to pay outstanding fees and fines

The Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller will host a week-long event to help those with a suspended driver’s license, those nearing a suspension, or persons in past-due collections, save money on select delinquent fines and fees.

Dubbed “Operation Green Light,” the annual event is a coordinated initiative hosted by clerks’ offices throughout the state. Lake County’s event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 16-20.

“We recognize that having a suspended license has a detrimental impact on the day-to-day lives of residents who are trying to travel to and from work or to the store,” said Gary Cooney, Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller. “During this event, our goal is to help customers get their license reinstated, or avoid being suspended, by offering incentives for paying in full, reducing the cost of the fees owed, or signing them up for payment plans.”

The Operation Green Light event will accommodate payments over the phone by calling (352) 742-3846, or payments online after a customer has coordinated payment terms with a payment clerk. Those wishing to pay in-person can do so at the Lake County Courthouse, 550 W. Main St., First Floor, East Wing, Tavares.

In most instances, those who pay their obligations in full, or sign up for a monthly payment plan by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 20, will be able to have their driver license reinstated, all while saving money.
