Looks as if the Milwaukee man whose house was foreclosed upon after he repeatedly failed to pay a $50 parking ticket might get to keep his home after all.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Mayor Tom Barrett said today he will work with the city treasurer's office to make sure Peter Tubic doesn't lose his home over a $50 parking violation.
"While it is important to recognize the need to comply with rules and regulations, this is a highly unusual situation and I can't sit by and watch a man who is clearly suffering from mental debilitation lose his home because of a $50 ticket," Barrett said in a written statement. "I will work with the City Treasurer to resolve this matter. Foreclosing on a home is always, always a last resort and residents can avoid the downward spiral that comes with avoiding enforcements."
