7.36.420 Imposition of Administrative Penalty

 

In addition to the Abatement Costs and Administrative Costs assessed against the Owner or Occupied of real property upon which a nuisance has been determined to exist, and in addition to any other fee or penalty imposed by this Code or by law, except where Administrative Penalties are not applicable as set forth in section 7.36.770, any person who permits or causes a nuisance as described in section7.36.310 of this Chapter to exist may be required to pay an Administrative Penalty pursuant to Article 7 as follows:

 

A penalty not exceeding one hundred dollars ($100.00) for a first violation.

 

A penalty not exceeding two hundred dollars ($200.00) for a second violation of the same ordinance or permit within the one year period immediately preceding the commission of the current violation.

 

A penalty not exceeding five hundred dollars ($500.00) for each additional violation of the same ordinance or permit within the one year period immediately preceding the commission of the current violation.

 

In the event that the use or structure in violation may be permitted with an appropriate permit, a minimum of two times and up to a maximum of five times the amount of the standard fee for such permit. The amount of the penalty shall be determined by the cognizant department or departments after taking into account the facts and circumstances of the violation, including, but not limited to, the length of time the violation has existed; the culpability of the person in violation or the willfulness of the violation; the extent of the violation and its effect on adjoining properties; and attempts, if any, to comply with the applicable ordinances.

 

The penalties shall accrue upon the expiration of the time to remedy the violation set forth in the Notice and Order to Abate; provided, however, that penalties shall be stayed during the pendency of a hearing requested pursuant to sections 7.36.625(d) and 7.36.628 until the abatement period provided by section 7.36.640(a)(2) has expired. Except for the period during which the penalties shall continue to accrue through to abatement, by whatever means, of the public nuisance.
