F. Supervision: In addition to, or in lieu of, any fine or penalty which may be imposed for violation of an ordinance of the Village, a disposition of supervision may be entered by the court upon a plea of guilty or a stipulation by the defendant of the facts supporting the charge or a finding of guilty. Pursuant to such disposition of supervision the court shall defer entering any judgment on the charges until the conclusion of the supervision.
At the conclusion of the period of supervision, if the court determines that the defendant has successfully complied with all of the conditions of supervision, the court shall discharge the defendant and enter a judgment dismissing the charges.
