TULSA– The City of Sand Springs was the recipient of the 2017 Municipal Innovations Award for a population of over 10,000 for its “Food for Fines” project during Thursday’s Oklahoma Municipal League Annual Awards Breakfast.

The new Food for Fines project allows residents with outstanding warrants because of unpaid fees to bring canned or non-perishable food to city hall and receive a credit per food item for up to $200.  All items collected are donated to the Sand Springs Community Services to be distributed to those in need in the community. Food for Fines has gathered over 6,000 pounds of food which is valued at over $10,000.  Food for Fines not only helps the Municipal Courts, but it helps the City as a whole, and those in need.
