University Parking Services is allowing students to turn in can

goods for either $3 off a parking fine or, if the fine has doubled,

a reduction in the fine back to its original amount.

The donations will go to the Food Bank for Larimer County. This

time of the year the food bank usually sees a dramatic decrease in

donations and we feel the program is a win-win-win.

For students, the can of green beans your mom bought for you

your freshman year for 50 cents can now be redeemed for $3 off a

parking fine. For parking services, people will be more willing to

pay their tickets now that they have been reduced. And the food

bank receives needed donations.

We like to see examples of cooperation between agencies,

especially when students benefit.

Too bad the administration cannot work out a way to have

students turn in a dusty can of corn for money off rising
