In the event a party charged with an administrative offense fails to pay the penalty and does not notify the city that they are contesting the violation, a misdemeanor or petty misdemeanor charge may be brought against the alleged violator in accordance with applicable statutes or ordinances. If the penalty is paid or if an individual is found to not have committed the administrative offense by the courts, no such charge may be brought by the city for the same violation.
