Albany--Albany Municipal Court defendants now have a new option if they can't afford or don't want to pay their fines. They can help clean up the city.

The city and municipal court have a new partnership that allows municipal court probationers to work off their fines.

The downtown manager claims the program is an overwhelming success so far.

"Individuals who found it difficult to pay their fines or something along that line the could transfer that fine into community service hours." Said Don Buie, Albany Downtown Manager.

Those who elect to pick up trash instead of pay a fine do so between the hours of 8 to 5 everyday and are self-supervised.

Officials ask store owners to keep an eye on trash downtown and do checks themselves to make sure the litter is picked up.
