§ 10.98  COMPLIANCE TICKETS.
   The ordinances of the village are hereby amended to provide for the use of compliance tickets for all ordinance violations except those that, in accordance with ILCS Ch. 625, Act 5, § 6-204, as it may from time to time be amended, must be reported to the Secretary of State.
   (A)   Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, any person accused of violating any provision of this Code or any other ordinance or regulation of the village may be issued a compliance ticket which shall require the violator to:
      (1)   Pay an administrative fee as stated in division (F) of this section to the Village Treasurer within 14 days of the issuance of a compliance ticket as a settlement and compromise of the claim against the violator. In the event payment of the administrative fee and compliance has not been obtained within the 14-day period, the administrative fee will be doubled for the period beginning the 15th day and including the 30th day after issuance of the ticket. The offender shall have until the close of business on the 30th day to satisfy the claim; and
      (2)   Correct, repair, or rectify any condition which constitutes a continuing violation of a village ordinance or regulation within the period specified in the compliance ticket.
   (B)   A compliance ticket may be issued as a courtesy to the violator in lieu of instituting a prosecution for the alleged violation. If the person accused of the violation fails to settle and pay the claim within the period specified in the compliance ticket, the compliance ticket shall be converted to a complaint or uniform traffic citation, and that person shall be subject to prosecution in the Circuit Court and shall be subject to the fines and penalties authorized by law or ordinance.
   (C)   If any person to whom a compliance ticket has been issued desires to contest the validity of the compliance ticket, then that person shall file a written notice within five days of the issuance of the compliance ticket. The Village Administrator shall appoint a person to serve as a hearing officer who shall, after receiving evidence from the person issuing the compliance ticket and the person to whom the compliance ticket is issued, render a decision.  If the person to whom the compliance ticket is issued does not comply with any order issued by the hearing officer within seven days, then the village shall have the right to pursue any available remedy to seek collection and compliance, including prosecution in Circuit Court.
   (D)   The Village Administrator is authorized to promulgate administrative regulations to implement the compliance ticket programs.
   (E)   If a compliance ticket requires the correction or repair of a condition within a period of time and the violator fails to correct, repair, or rectify the violation within that period, then the village may issue additional compliance tickets or may pursue prosecution in Circuit.
