Town of Millet uses traffic tickets to boost Christmas hamper program

Council approves revenue charity initiative

Traffic violators caught in the Town of Millet will see their hard earned cash be donated to a good cause this year as they pay their tickets.

The Town of Millet council approved a proposal from CPO Chance Trenholm, turning ticket revenue in the town into a donation project for the Millet and District Lion’s Club Annual Christmas Hamper Program.

For every traffic violation ticket written between Nov. 19 and Dec. 2 the Town of Millet will donate $75 to the Lion’s program.

“I think it’s a good idea. From what I hear the hampers were up last year and will be up again this year,” said Coun. Carol Sadoroszney.

“I think it’s a definite positive thing to get out there,” said CAO Teri Pelletier.

In his proposal Trenholm states that during the time period over which the initiative takes place he will not alter his traffic enforcement routine.

“He’s not going hunting,” said Pelletier.
