Sec. 90-17. Compliance tickets
For purposes hereof the following definitions shall apply:
Compliance tickets are herewith defined as tickets which may be issued for ordinance violations, including building code violations, in lieu of issuing a citation or arrest warrant for the violation.
City officers or agents are herewith defined as city police officer, code enforcement officer and any other officer authorized by the Municipal Code or the Zoning Ordinance of the City of Zion to issue arrest warrants and/or citations
At the discretion of the city officer or agent, a person accused of an ordinance violation or building code violation may be issued a compliance ticket in lieu of citation or arrest warrant for the violation.
A compliance ticket must be settled by paying to the city, in accordance with the restrictions provided in the compliance ticket, an administration fee in the amount of $25.00 within ten days of the date of issuance, with the exception of fines and penalties for vehicle license violations as provided per section 90-245. In the event payment of the administration fee has not been received on or before the expiration of said ten-day period, the administration fee will be increased to $100.00 for the period beginning the eleventh day and including the thirtieth day after the issuance of the compliance ticket and the offender shall have until the close of business on the thirtieth day after issuance to pay the increased fee. After the thirtieth day, the city may decide whether a notice to appear will be issued or whether the past due fee will be referred for collection or whether payment of the fine and compliance where required will remain acceptable.
If the offender does not settle the claim, including both payment of the administration fee and compliance, where required, the city may use other legal remedies, including, but not limited to, the issuance of a criminal complaint or the issuance of a notice to appear in court or the referral to a collection agency or for said violation the offender shall be subject to the fines and penalties set forth in the applicable provisions of the Municipal Code.
