§ 1-4-1 General penalty.

[2016 Code]
Any person convicted of a violation of a provision of this code shall forfeit a sum not exceeding $1,000.00, but not to exceed any limitations provided by the Wisconsin statutes.

§ 1-4-2 Costs.

[2016 Code]
When a forfeiture is imposed as the whole or any part of the punishment of any offense, or when a penalty or forfeiture is recovered for doing or neglecting to do any act, by virtue of any of the provisions of this code, the court shall also order the defendant to pay, and shall give judgment for, the costs of prosecution, whether the section under which said prosecution or proceeding is had shall specifically so direct or not and in default of payment, the person adjudged guilty shall be committed to the county jail for a term not exceeding six months, unless a different term is specifically provided.

§ 1-4-3 Application.

[2016 Code]
The penalty provided in this chapter shall be applicable to every section of this code, the same as though it were a part of each section. Any person convicted of a violation of any section of this code where any duty is prescribed or obligation imposed, or where any action which is of a continuing nature is forbidden or declared to be unlawful shall be subject to a Class 1 forfeiture, unless said penalty exceeds any limitations provided by Wisconsin statutes. A separate offense shall exist for each day such duty or obligation remains unperformed or such act continues, unless specifically provided in this code. Where the same offense is made punishable or is created by different clauses or sections of this code, the prosecuting officer may elect under which to proceed; but not more than one recovery shall be had against the same person for the same offense; provided, that the revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a recovery or penalty so as to bar any other penalty being enforced. Whenever the doing of any act or the omission to do any act constitutes a breach or penalty specifically declared for such breach, his chapter shall apply and each day during or on which a breach or violation occurs or continues shall constitute a separate offense.

§ 1-4-4 Liability of officers.

[2016 Code]
No provision of this code designating the duties of any officer or employee shall be construed to make such officer or employee liable for any forfeiture or penalty for a failure to perform such duty, unless the intention of the council to impose such forfeiture or penalty on such officer or employee is specifically and clearly expressed in the section creating the duty.
