45.1: ISSUANCE AND SETTLEMENT OF CITATIONS:
   A.   Whenever a village police officer or other designated village official is authorized to charge a person or arrest a person without a warrant for a violation of any provision of this code, that officer or official may file a complaint for such violation in court, or, if such violation is of any of the provisions of this code specifically referenced in subsection F of this section, that officer or official may, in lieu of filing a complaint in court, issue to the alleged violator a compliance citation which shall:
      (1)   State the specific code provision that was violated;
      (2)   Advise said person that he/she may make payment to settle said claim in the amount applicable to said alleged violation, as set forth in subsection F of this section;
      (3)   Advise said person, where applicable, to cease and/or abate said violation forthwith and to refrain from like violations in the future; and
      (4)   Inform said person that, upon failure to so settle the claim and to cease and/or abate said violation, a complaint will be filed in the circuit court of DuPage County charging said person with such violation.
   B.   Citations may be served as follows:
      (1)   Personally upon the person responsible for the violation;
      (2)   In the event that the responsible person cannot be located, the citation may be served by sending a copy to the person by first class U.S. mail; or
      (3)   In the case of violations related to parked motor vehicles, a citation may be affixed to the motor vehicle.
   C.   Any person served with a compliance citation may settle and compromise the matter in respect to such code violation by ceasing and/or abating said violation and paying the amount shown in the fee schedule set forth in subsection F of this section within the period of time specified on the citation, which period shall be not more than thirty (30) days from the date of issuance of the citation. The settlement payment shall be made in accordance with the instructions on the citation at the office of the police department. The police department shall issue a receipt for the payment so received and promptly remit the amount to the finance department, which shall in turn credit it to the proper village fund.
   D.   In the event that the person to whom the compliance citation is issued fails to settle and pay the violation claim within thirty (30) days of issuance of the citation, a final notice shall be issued and sent by first class U.S. mail to the person at the person's last known address. The person may then settle and compromise the citation by payment in the manner provided above of a sum equal to two (2) times the applicable amount shown in the fee schedule set forth in subsection F of this section for each such violation. If payment is not made within thirty (30) days of issuance of the final notice, then the village police officer or other designated village official is authorized to cause a new summons and complaint to be issued and served on the person as required by law, and to file and prosecute said complaint in the 18th judicial circuit court, DuPage County, Illinois.
   E.   The issuance of a compliance citation shall be discretionary, issued as a courtesy in lieu of instituting a formal prosecution for an alleged offense. If the person accused of the violation does not settle the claim and correct/abate such violation, the violation may be prosecuted before the court and that person shall be subject to the general penalties set forth in section 1.6 of this code.
   F.   In addition to any agreement to cease and/or abate any violation, or to refrain from any like violation in the future, a violation claim may be settled, compromised and paid upon the issuance of a compliance citation, and prior to the issuance of a final notice, by payment of the settlement fee set forth in the following schedule:
