The town board of trustees may establish a minimum fine schedule. The minimum fine schedule when established shall provide for a minimum amount which a person may pay upon a plea of guilty or nolo contendere to the listed offenses. The minimum fine schedule shall include fine, court costs and any assessments set by state law within the specified amount. Upon plea of guilty or nolo contendere and payment of the required minimum fine prior to the date scheduled for court appearance, no further court appearance shall be required. The judge may authorize the court clerk to accept pleas of guilty and nolo contendere where the amount of the minimum fine is paid at the time of such plea and prior to the scheduled court appearance date.
