LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Lexington Parking Authority says it made mistakes in collecting late fees on parking tickets and will issue refunds.

Parking Authority Director Gary Means told media that there were about 6,300 citations that incorrectly added a $15 late fee for a total of almost $100,000.

The tickets were issued between late July 2008 and mid-April 2012, after the city changed from handwritten tickets to printing them on electronic devices.

Lexington Parking Authority Board Chairman James Frazier said Means brought the error to the board’s attention “following a review of its internal procedures.”

He said in addition to a refund, those affect will also receive a $3 parking voucher.
