§ 52.99  PENALTY.
   (A)   Violations of § 52.36 shall be determined and cited by the City Clerk or his/her designee. A violator may appeal the citation within five days of its issuance by submitting a written appeal to the city. The City Council shall hear the appeal at the next City Council meeting. The decision of the City Council is final. Violators may be granted an administrative waiver if evidence is provided that equipment failure was the cause of the violation. A letter from a qualified vendor or equipment invoice will be required to show proof of equipment failure.
   (B)   Upon discovery of a first violation of § 52.36, the violator shall be issued, either personally or by mail, a warning letter that sets forth the violation and which shall describe the remedy and fines for future violations.
   (C)   Upon subsequent violations of § 52.36  at the same location, the violator shall be issued, either personally or by mail, a citation that sets forth the violation and shall describe the remedy. Fines shall be added to the monthly water bill of the owner or current occupant of the premises where the violation occurred. The imposition of the fine shall in no way limit the right of the city to pursue other legal remedies.
