Brevard County Clerk of Court will hold its fourth annual Operation Green Light event

VIERA, Fla. – The Brevard County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller’s Office will hold its fourth annual Operation Green Light event on Saturday, April 9, 2022, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Justice Center in Viera.  The event is part of a statewide initiative to help citizens who are past due on their court obligations clear up fines, all the while helping to reinstate driver’s licenses.

“We’re excited to once again offer this valuable service to our customers.  We understand that the past few years have been hard for working families,” said Clerk & Comptroller Rachel M. Sadoff. “This event allows individuals who have been sent to collections to forgo the 25-percent surcharge during this one-day-only event, getting them back on the road and obligation free.”

Florida law requires the Clerk’s Office to pursue collection of court obligations through a collection agent when fines or fees are more than 90 days delinquent.  Once turned over to collection agents, a 25-percent collection surcharge is added to the principal owed.  During Operation Green Light, the surcharge is waived—allowing customers to pay a lesser amount to clear their court obligations.

The Clerk’s Office is collaborating with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to have its FLOW (Florida Licensing on Wheels) bus on site from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for eligible driver’s license reinstatement. 

The Clerk’s 2021 event brought in nearly $125,000 in delinquent fines and fees that was distributed to local and statewide justice partners.  As a result, nearly 250 individuals were eligible to have their driver’s license reinstated and nearly 300 cases with balances due were paid in full.
