Except when fines and costs are paid by compromise payment as provided in division (B) below prior to court, the Circuit Clerk shall add to the fine any and all costs and fees upon an authorized disposition.

In the event the Peotone Police, the Village Code Enforcement Officer or other designee of the village elect to charge any individual under a compromise citation as set forth hereinafter, any such person accused of a violation of this chapter and originally charged under this section may settle and compromise the claim without a court appearance by payment of one-half of the minimum required fine to the Village Clerk of the Village Hall within ten business days of the date of the violation if the compromise box designation is so checked on the Complaint and Notice to Appear form.
