   The parking fines and late payment penalties listed here for a section shall apply to all unlisted subsections.

   The second late payment penalty will be applied only if payment is received more than 58 days from the date of issuance.  For purposes of this schedule, the second penalty is added to the "fine with second penalty" amount.
 
    Any surcharges or assessments, including any penalties or other fees, mandated by State law for a violation and not included in the fine and late penalties shall be added to the fine for the violation.
 
   A parking fee shall be increased by the current DMV charge when a hold vehicle registration renewal is placed with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
 
   A parking fine shall be increased by the amount of the fee that is charged to the City upon assignment as a delinquent account for Special Collection processing and/or if the City assigns to an outside collection agency or independent third party collectors.
