Kansas City Suburb Accepts School Supplies For Parking Fines

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas City suburb is allowing people to pay their parking fines with school supplies.

The city of Olathe, Kansas, is offering the option through Aug. 16. Items that are being sought include No. 2 pencils, 1 and 3-inch three-ring binders and single-subject spiral notebooks. People who want to take advantage of the offer can bring in the supplies and a receipt.

City officials say the offer isn’t valid for commercial parking violations and only up to $50 in school supplies can be donated per person.
