Over those two years, Pioneer has collected $54,763 in unpaid fines, which has already been paid to the county.
These funds contribute to the budgets of the county, local and state law enforcement, and many other agencies that would otherwise be funded by county taxpayers.
"We've been tremendously pleased," said Massac County State's Attorney Patrick Windhorst, who said with Pioneer's cooperation, the county has been able to exceed its expectations in regard to the outstanding money.
"Pioneer is tremendously easy to work with," said Windhorst.
According to Hansen, the money that has been collected is mainly from traffic fines. Hansen said Pioneer hopes that within the next couple of years the total will be doubled.
