§ 51.502  ADMINISTRATIVE FINES.
   (A)   Any person who shall continue any violation beyond the time limit provided for in the notice of violation shall be fined in the amount not exceeding $1,000 for each violation. Each day in which any such violation shall continue, shall be deemed a separate offense. Additional fines and enforcement actions will generally be in accordance with the town's Enforcement Response Plan.
   (B)   Unpaid charges, fines, and penalties shall, after 60 calendar days, be assessed an additional penalty of 10% of the unpaid balance, and interest shall accrue thereafter at a rate of 1% per month. A lien against the user's property will be sought for unpaid charges, fines, and penalties.
   (C)   Users desiring to dispute such fines must file a written request for the town to reconsider the fine along with full payment of the fine amount within 30 days of being notified of the fine. Where a request has merit, the town may convene a hearing on the matter. In the event the user's appeal is successful, the payment, together with any interest accruing thereto, shall be returned to the user. The costs of preparing administrative enforcement actions, such as notices and orders, may be added to the fine.
   (D)   Issuance of an administrative fine shall not be a bar against, or a prerequisite for, taking any other action against the user.
