From your story, I wouldn’t be surprised if the city hasn’t decided to start automatically rejecting ticket challenges as a money-maker for itself. I don’t know, but that’s kind of what it sounds like. I suggest you call your city-council person, tell the constituent services person what happened, and that person will take care of it for you. And then get yourself out to the polls and vote for that city-council person at the next election for the fine job he or she is doing cutting through the bullpoppy of city bureaucracy. I don’t know what I’d have done without Jack Evans’ office over the years.
