La Grange City Council agreed Monday to have a uniform set of fines and penalties for city code violations.
City attorney Steve Emery said “law enforcement” requested a uniform set of rules, which would enable them to explain penalties more easily to offenders.
The specific penalties for each city code violation are:
A fine of $50 for a first offense, $100 for a second offense, or $500 for a third offense, if paid within 30 days of citation. The fine will be doubled if the offender fails to pay within 30 days of citation, and an interest rate of 1 percent, compounded monthly, will apply.
The uniform fees do not apply to the alcoholic beverages control ordinance, the noise ordinance or the curfew ordinance, which have separate penalties.
