5.2. CONSIDERATION OF ESTABLISHING ADMINISTRATIVE FINES FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE
In 1999, the City adopted Ordinance 2180 to enact Chapter 1.15 and establish a non-judicial citation and hearing process. Under this Chapter, the administrative fine amounts were not fixed in the ordinance and instead were left open to the City Council to adopt fine amounts by resolution. (CMC section 1.15.050.) Various resolutions have established fine for specific CMC sections over the years and are updated from time to time. Despite this, no default fine amount exists. This resolution fulfills that purpose by setting a default fine amount not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100.00) for a first violation, two hundred dollars ($200.00) for a second violation of the same code provision within one year, and five hundred dollars ($500.00) foreach additional violation of the same law within one year. These fine amounts would apply to
any violation where there is not already a stated fine amount. This resolution would not affect those other specific violation amounts. (Report - Andrew Jared, City Attorney)
