§ 110.99  PENALTY.
   (A)   In addition to criminal penalties provided in this chapter, a tow company registered on the tow rotation list may be subject to sanctions for a violation of a provision of this chapter, depending on the nature of infraction, number of infractions, culpability of the tow company for the actions of its drivers and other circumstances. The sanctions shall be determined by the City Chief of Police. The sanctions may range from warning, to suspension or termination of the registration to participate in the tow rotation list. The level of sanction shall be determined by the severity of the offense, whether the tow company has any prior violations and whether the conduct indicates a likelihood of a repeat offense, all in consideration of the continuing safety and convenience of the public. The tow company will be given advance notice of the sanction to be imposed and will be permitted to make a written presentation to the Chief of Police prior to enforcement of the sanction. The Chief of Police shall have the final decision as to the action taken. The Chief of Police may elect to present the findings to the City Public Safety Committee for a recommendation prior to making a final decision.
   (B)   A violation of this chapter shall be a Class C misdemeanor punishable by fine up to a maximum of $500.
