PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A municipal court judge has given Providence officials three weeks to resolve the remaining 108 unpaid tickets accrued by two city vehicles dating back to 2003.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2dcxMlS ) 11 of the 119 past-due tickets were fixed on Wednesday when Judge John Lombardi dismissed two of them and an existing employee was ordered to pay the other nine.

Including penalties, the city currently owes more than $14,000 for the tickets. Lombardi ruled that the drivers responsible have to pay, not the city itself.

Twenty-five of the tickets are attached to a white Ford Expedition while 94 were written for a black Ford Explorer. Both are used by members of Mayor Jorge Elorza’s advance staff.

A majority of the tickets were issued when former Mayor David Cicilline (sihs-ihl-EE’-nee) was in office.
