I realize that municipal employees have little incentive to actually think and take initiative...but now i don't know what to do.
After years of neglect, i pulled my credit reports and took the steps to begin the cleanup. After 1 1/2 months, only a couple neg items remain...but one is a parking ticket from 6 years ago with the City of San Diego.
Instead of fighting the ticket, i offered to settle for the original citation amount in exchange for full deletion. A letter came back that my offer was denied.
I just now called, but the "employee" stated that they do not negotiate and will not delete. I stated that i then have little incentive to pay anything since this item should drop off my reports in 6 months.
She just answered that they will eventually just go after me through tax returns.
Since i am in "letter writing mood" today...i'm going to fire off a letter to the City Treasurer and Mayor letting them know (tactfully) that their policies suck.
Any opinions from the peanut gallery?
