§ 10.99  GENERAL PENALTY.
   (A)   General penalty.  Whoever violates any provision of this code or other ordinance of this city for which another penalty is not specifically provided, shall be fined not more than $750 for each and every violation thereof, and every day the violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.
(1980 Code, § 33.101)
   (B)   Special penalties.
      (1)   Generally.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, special penalties are established for certain violations of the provisions of this code as provided in this section. In the event maximum penalties exceed those which may be imposed by the city as a home rule unit of local government pursuant to the provisions of § 6, Article VII (Local Government) of the Constitution of the state, or otherwise by law, the maximum penalties shall be deemed to be reduced to the allowable maximum.
      (2)   Notice of violation.
         (a)   Minimum penalties.  The minimum penalty for any violation of this code for which a notice of violation is used pursuant to division (C) below, shall be that penalty prescribed for the violation if paid to the City Treasurer as provided therein. The minimum penalty shall not be deemed to include, however, the additional sum due under division (C) below if the penalty is not timely paid.
         (b)   Animal running at large.  The city has determined that animals running at large are a nuisance to the public health, safety and welfare. Accordingly, in the event a person, firm or corporation violates § 90.010 or § 90.011 of this code, the minimum penalty for the offense shall be increased from the amount set forth in division (C) below by the sum of $25 for each and every offense beyond the first offense committed within the 24-month period preceding the date of an offense. Thus, for example, if within the preceding 24-month period from the date of an offense the person, firm or corporation has committed an offense one other time, the minimum penalty would be $150; or if two other times the minimum penalty would be $200. For purposes of this division, the dates of any offense are to be considered, rather than any other date such as the date of a finding of guilty. Additionally, only those offenses or violations are to be considered for which the person, firm or corporation has paid the penalty in response to a notice of violation or has been found guilty or entered a plea of guilty to the offense (even if thereafter place on supervision). This section shall not be construed to allow the presentation of evidence of earlier offenses at any hearing relative to any offense until the alleged offender has been found guilty or entered a plea of guilty to the offense involved. In addition to other proof as the court shall deem competent, a certificate of the Circuit Clerk, a certificate of the City Treasurer or a certificate of the Chief of Police or a records keeper of the City Police Department shall be prima facie evidence of prior violations.
         (c)   Cross connection control.  In the event a person, firm or corporation is alleged to have violated the provisions of § 52.079(A), (B) or (C) or § 52.083(A) of this code, pertaining to cross connection control surveys and inspections, the minimum penalty for the offense shall be increased from the amount set forth in division (C) below as provided in this division. The penalty shall be increased by the sum of $25 for each and every violation subsequent to the first violation occurring within the 12- month period from the date of the first violation in the manner described in division (B)(2)(b) above.
         (d)   Early collection of garbage and trash. In the event a person, firm or corporation has violated the provisions of § 50.20 of this code, pertaining to the early time limit for the collection by a commercial collector of garbage, trash, grease or debris, the minimum penalty for the offense shall be increased from the amount set forth in division (C) below by the sum of $200 for each and every violation subsequent to the first violation occurring within the 12-month period from the date of first violation in the manner described in division (B)(2)(b) above.
      (3)   Peace disturbance.  The minimum penalty for peace disturbance as set forth in § 132.01 of this code shall be $100 if the conduct on which the offense is based occurred in whole or in part in a public place. For purposes hereof, a public place shall include but not be limited to any place, premises or area to which the public as opposed to certain private individuals have a right to resort or access; a place, premises or area visited by many persons rather than simply a few; a place, premises or area exposed to the public; or a place, premises or area where the public gathers together or passes to and fro.
      (4)   Possession of cannabis.  The penalties for the possession of cannabis as set forth in § 136.02 of this code shall be as follows:
         (a)   Two hundred fifty dollars for the first offense.
         (b)   Four hundred dollars for the second offense.
         (c)   Five hundred fifty dollars for the third offense.
         (d)   Seven hundred dollars for the fourth offense and each additional offense thereafter.
      (5)   Demolition of designated property.  Any unauthorized demolition of a landmark of any property within a designated Historic District shall be punishable by a fine not less than $500 nor more than $5,000. In the case of an unauthorized demolition, the city may refuse to issue a building permit for the subject property for a period not to exceed three years after the date of a violation.
      (6)   Liquor; minors.  The penalties drinking, purchasing or possessing alcoholic liquor, or misrepresenting one’s age for the purpose of purchasing or obtaining alcoholic liquor by any person under the age of 21 years of age, as set forth in § 111.084 of this code, shall be as follows:
         (a)   First offense.  First time violators of the code provisions shall be fined not less than $100 and not more than $300; and/or education and public service at the discretion of the court;
         (b)   Subsequent offenses.  Those who violate code provisions for the second and subsequent time shall be fined not less than $300 and not more than $500; and, at the discretion of the court, may be ordered to attend an alcohol education program and perform reasonable public service work; and
         (c)   Night club related.  In the event the violator acquired the alcoholic liquor in a night club, then was in possession of alcoholic liquor in a night club or was under the influence of alcoholic liquor in a night club, irrespective where the actual arrest took place, the violator shall be fined not more than $1,000 and not less than $500 and, at the discretion of the court, may be ordered to attend an alcohol education program.
      (7)   Transportation of liquor.  The minimum penalty for violating § 111.095 of this code shall be $150.
      (8)   Furnishing liquor to minors.  The penalties for selling, giving or delivering alcoholic liquor to any persons under 21 years of age or permitting any persons under 21 years of age to consume alcoholic liquor, as set forth in § 111.084 of this code shall be as follows:
         (a)   First time violators of the code provision shall be fined not less than $300 and not more than $500;
         (b)   Those who violate code provisions for the second or subsequent time shall be fined not less than $500 and not more than $1,000;
         (c)   In the event the violator of § 111.084 was 21 years of age or older and the offense occurred in a licensed night club or cabaret, the violator shall be fined not less than $1,000 and not more than $2,500; and
         (d)   Any violator of § 111.135(D) shall be fined not less than $100 and not more than $500; provided, however, that any violator of § 111.135(D)(3) shall be fined not less than $250 and not more than $1,000.
      (9) Stop work order issued.  Any person, firm or corporation who shall continue any work in or about a structure after having been served with a stop work order, except the work as that person is directed to perform to remove a violation or unsafe condition, shall be liable for a fine of not less than $100 and not more than $500.
      (10)   Keg permit stickers.  Any person, firm or corporation who violates the provisions of § 111.097 of this code shall be fined as follows:
         (a)   Not less than $250 for any violation thereof other than violation of § 111.097(D), sale prohibited; and
         (b)   Not less than $500 and not more than $1,000 for any violation of § 111.097(D), sale prohibited.

In addition to these penalties, or other relief as the law may afford, the city may institute an appropriate action or proceedings to recover any and all expenses or costs, including attorney fees enforcing this division. All amounts shall be a lien on the property at the proposed demolition site.
      (13)   Tobacco vendor prohibitions and requirements (sale to minors prohibited).  The minimum penalty for violating § 134.16 of this code shall be $100.
      (14)   Tobacco; possession/purchase by minors prohibited.  The penalties for possession or purchasing tobacco products by minors as provided in §§ 134.17 and 134.18 of this code shall be as follows:
         (a)   First offense.  First time violators of the code provisions may, at the discretion of the court, be ordered to complete a program of education regarding the dangers of tobacco use, or fined not less than the sum of $25 for violation of § 134.17, purchase, or $10 for violation of § 134.18, possession.

   (C)   Notice of violation.
      (1)   Generally.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any person, firm or corporation alleged to have violated those provisions of the code hereinafter designated, shall be promptly issued a notice of violation alleging the offense. Notice of violation shall be in a form prescribed by the Chief of Police or other enforcing officer designated under this code, in consultation with the Corporation Counsel and the City Attorney consistent with applicable law and court rules. The notice of violation shall set forth the violation alleged and the penalty which may be paid to the City Treasurer. The penalty shall be in accordance with the schedule hereinafter provided in division (D) below, provided that the penalty prescribed shall be increased for violations of § 90.011 of this code, pertaining to dogs running at large and §§ 52.079 and 52.083 of this code, pertaining to cross connection controls, as provided in divisions (B)(2) and (B)(3) above. The person, firm or corporation shall be provided 14 days from the date of the notice of violation to pay the prescribed penalty. If not paid within the 14-day period, the person, firm or corporation shall be allowed an additional 14 days to pay the prescribed penalty plus a sum equal to the court costs would be assessable by the Circuit Court upon the disposition of the violation. The additional sum shall not be deemed to be or constitute the collection of court costs, but is merely the manner in which the additional sum is determined. Collection of this additional sum shall be waived by the Chief of Police, or his or her designate, or other enforcing officer designated under this code, upon receiving satisfactory proof or evidence that the person, firm or corporation did not receive actual notice of the issuance of the notice of violation during the initial period at which time payment could have been made without payment of the additional sum. Prior to the time designated for payment herein, the Water Superintendent, or his or her designate, shall further have the authority to waive collection of the prescribed penalty for alleged violations of §§ 52.079 and 52.083, pertaining to cross connection controls, upon receipt of satisfactory proof that the person, firm or corporation has complied or is in compliance with the requirements of the section. In the event that payment is made in accordance herewith, the payment shall be in full satisfaction of any penalty for the violation. Nothing herein shall prevent or preclude enforcement as provided or allowed by this code for separate, independent, prior or subsequent violations. In the event that payment is not made within the time periods prescribed, that is, within 28 days, a complaint, notice to appear or other appropriate document shall be filed by the Chief of Police or officer of the Police Department, or other appropriate person or other enforcing officer designated under this code or by an information initiated by the City Attorney, before a court of proper jurisdiction charging the violation.

   (D)   Separate violations.  Any person, firm or corporation violating any provision of this code shall be guilty of a separate offense for each and every day during any portion of which any violation of any provision of this code is committed, continued or permitted by any person, firm or corporation.
(1980 Code, § 32.004)
   (E)   Supervision.
      (1)   Generally.  In addition or as an alternative to imposing a penalty as provided for herein, a court of competent jurisdiction may place a person, firm or corporation violating any provision of this code on supervision. When a person, firm or corporation is placed on supervision, the court shall enter an order for supervision specifying the period of supervision and shall defer further proceedings in the case until the conclusion of that period.
      (2)   Period of supervision.  The period of supervision shall be reasonable under all of the circumstances of the case, but may not be longer than one year.
      (3)   Conditions.  The court may, in addition to other considerations, require that the person, firm or corporation placed on supervision:
         (a)   Make a report to and appear it person before the court or participate with the court’s social service agency as directed by the court in the order of supervision;
         (b)   Pay a monetary penalty and/or court costs;
         (c)   Work or pursue a course of study or vocational training;
         (d)   Undergo medical or psychiatric treatment or treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism;
         (e)   Attend or reside in a facility established for the instruction or residence of those on probation;
         (f)   Support his or her dependents;
         (g)   Refrain from possessing a firearm or other dangerous weapons;
         (h)   If a minor:
            1.   Reside with his or her parents or legal guardian or in a foster home;
            2.   Attend school or other training program;
            3.   Attend a non-residential program for youth; and
            4.   Contribute to his or her own support at home or in a foster home.
         (i)   Make restitution or reparation in an amount not to exceed actual loss or damage to property and pecuniary loss, determining additionally the amount and conditions of payment; and
         (j)   Perform some reasonable public service work such as, but not limited to, the picking up of litter in public parks or along public streets and alleys or the maintenance of public facilities.
      (4)   Deferral of judgment.  The court shall defer entering any judgment on the charges until the conclusion of the supervision.
      (5)   Compliance with supervision.  At the conclusion of the period of supervision, if the court determines that the person, firm or corporation has successfully complied with all of the conditions of supervision, the court shall discharge the person, firm or corporation and enter a judgment dismissing the violation charged.
      (6)   Effect of supervision.  Discharge and dismissal upon a successful conclusion of a disposition of supervision shall be deemed without adjudication of guilt and shall not be termed a conviction for purposes of disqualification or disability imposed by law on conviction of a violation hereunder. Three  years after discharge and dismissal under this section, a person, firm or corporation may, on request to the Chief of Police or his or her designee, have his, her or its record of alleged violation expunged.
      (7)   Immunity.  Neither the city nor any official or employee thereof acting in the course of his or her official duties shall be liable for any tortious acts of any person placed on supervision who is given any public service work as a condition of supervision, except for willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the city, the official or the employee.
      (8)   Non-employee.  No person assigned to a public service employment program shall be considered an employee for any purpose of the city, the county or other party.
      (9)   Incarceration.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to allow the violation of any provision of this code to be punishable by incarceration or imprisonment.
(1980 Code, § 32.005)
   (F)   Restitution.  In addition to imposing a penalty as provided for herein, a court of competent jurisdiction may additionally require that the person, firm or corporation violating a provision hereof make restitution to any person, firm or corporation who or which incurs property damage as a result of the violation. Any court finding a person, firm or corporation in violation of a provision hereof shall, at the request of the City Attorney and after proof of property damage is made, require the making of restitution to the city in any case in which property damage has been incurred by the city.
(1980 Code, § 32.006)
   (G)   Alternative sections.  In all cases where the same offense is made punishable or is created by different clauses or to sections of this code, the prosecuting officer may elect under which to proceed; but not more than one recovery shall be had against the same person for the same offense; provided that the revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a recovery or penalty so as to bar any other penalty being enforced.
(1980 Code, § 32.007)
   (H)   Other remedies.  Nothing herein shall be construed to affect any just, equitable or legal right or remedy which may otherwise be available to the city or any other person, firm or corporation as a result of the violation of this code.
(1980 Code, § 32.008)
   (I)   Crime laboratory; analysis fee.  When a person has been adjudged guilty of an offense in violation of § 136.02 or 136.03 or placed on court supervision for same, in addition to any other disposition, penalty or fine imposed, a criminal laboratory analysis fee of $100 for which he or she was convicted, found guilty, and/or placed on court supervision shall be levied by the court, unless waived by the city at the time of sentencing. Upon verified petition of the person, the court may suspend payment of all or part of the fee if it finds the person does not have the ability to pay the fee. The fee shall be paid to the crime laboratory doing the analysis and shall be placed in a dedicated fund by that agency to support laboratory or anti-drug activity. The fee shall, in no event, be payable to the general fund of any unit of government.
      (1)   Generally.  City attorneys shall be entitled, in their official capacity and on behalf of the General Fund of the city, a municipal corporation, to the following fees; however, the fee requirement of this section does not apply to actions before city boards or commissions:
         (a)   For each finding of “guilty” in ordinance violation cases presented before judges of the circuit court, whether by trial, stipulation, admission or plea, $10;
         (b)   For each case of appeal, of any action or ordinance of the city, taken from Adams County to the Supreme or Appellate Court when prosecuted, argued, briefed, attended or defended by the City Attorney, $50;
         (c)   In addition to any other fee provided herein, for each day, or part thereof, actually employed in the trial of a case, $25; in which case the court before whom the case is tried shall make an order specifying the number of days for which a per diem shall be allowed;
         (d)   For each case of forfeited cash or recognizance bond or ex parte judgement where the forfeiture or ex parte judgement is set aside at the instance of the defense, in addition to the ordinary costs, $10 for each defendant;
         (e)   For each day actually employed in the hearing of a case of habeas corpus in which the city is interested, $25;
         (f)   For each day or portion thereof actually employed in the hearing of a case of any post trial motion, common law writ, motion for judgment notwithstanding a verdict, or any other pleading attacking a finding of guilty by or on behalf of the defendant before any court and in which the city is interested, $25 per defendant in which case the court before whom the case is tried shall make an order specifying the number of days for which a per diem shall be allowed; and
         (g)   For any prosecution of any ordinance where the City Attorney files a motion for summary judgment with the court and the city is awarded judgment of guilty in any case that is the object of the motion for summary judgment, $25.
      (2)   Exceptions.  The assessment of the fees as set forth above shall not apply and no City Attorney fees shall be ordered in the following instances:
         (a)   No appearance fee per division (J)(1)(a) shall apply to a plea of guilty or stipulated trial entered into by agreement between the city and the defendant for a violation of any provision of Title VII of the code;
         (b)   No person under the age of 18 years on the date of the alleged offense shall be assessed any trial or appearance fee under any of the provisions of division (J)(1) of this section; provided, however; this exception is not applicable to persons found guilty of violating any provision of Chapter 111 of the code of the city and both appearance and trial fees, as applicable, shall be assessed by the court in those cases;
         (c)   The City Attorney or any attorney appearing in his or her stead is hereby authorized as the agent of the city to waive any or all of the fees at any stage of any case;
         (d)   Where a defendant presents a bona fide constitutional challenge to any enactment, ordinance, resolution or undertaking of the city, irrespective whether the challenge is successful, no fees under division (J)(1) of this division shall be ordered. Where the defendant is unsuccessful in this challenge, the court shall make findings whether the constitutional challenge was bona fide in nature and make an order excepting the defendant from the fees provided for in division (J)(1) of this division;
         (e)   No defendant whose sole income is any form of disability payment from the United States Social Security Administration shall be assessed any trial or appearance fee under any of the provisions of division (J)(1) of this division: provided, however; this exception is not applicable to persons found guilty of violating any provision of Chapter 111 of the code of the city and both appearance and trial fees, as applicable, shall be assessed by the court in those cases;
         (f)   Where two or more charges are tried, presented or resolved in the court appearance, the court shall assess trial and appearance fees as set forth in division (J)(1) of this division for whichever case results in the higher aggregate trial and appearance fee and deem the trial and appearance fee waived in the case or cases which would result in a lesser fee; the policy of the city being to require but one payment for one trial or appearance.
      (3)   Method of collection.
         (a)   All the foregoing fees shall be taxed as costs to be collected through the Circuit Clerk from the defendant upon finding of guilty.
         (b)   The City Attorney shall have a lien for the fees ordered under division (J)(1) of this division against any and all assets of defendant, by whomsoever held, until the fees and earnings are fully paid.
