Brooklyn Heights businesswoman Susan Hager, who faced fines totaling $3K for posting bills on area lampposts, has had those fines reduced to $75, the Brooklyn Paper reports.
Brooklyn Paper: “I’m elated,” Hager said. “As I said at my hearing [on Dec. 11], I was willing to pay for one violation. But it was unfair to give me the same ticket for all those cards in one envelope.”
Hager freely admits that she taped an envelope containing 15 business cards for her custom decks on a Court Street lamppost back in April. But Sanitation worker Sarah Leon fined Hager for each card inside the envelope, resulting in a summons for $3,000, so Hager took the fight to the Environmental Control Board.
