[Added 12-21-1995; amended 12-21-2000]
A. 
In lieu of a citation, the Police Department is authorized to issue a parking ticket for violations of any parking regulations contained in this chapter. Where violations are noted by issuance of a parking ticket, each such owner or operator shall, within 120 hours after 6:00 p.m. of the day of the violation, pay to the Town Clerk at the Town Hall as a forfeiture for and in full satisfaction of such violation the sum of $10. Each such owner or operator shall, after said period of 120 hours, pay an additional penalty of $20. However, if the penalty is not paid within 15 days after 6:00 p.m. of the day of violation, each such owner or operator shall then pay an additional penalty of $40, except that if the penalty is not paid within 45 days after 6:00 p.m. of the day of violation, each such owner or operator shall pay an additional penalty of $50. The failure of such owner or operator to make such payment shall render such owner or operator subject to the penalties provided in § 345.28, Wis. Stats. Each time a designated violation is noted by the issuance of a parking ticket, even though such violations shall be consecutive, shall constitute a separate violation.
B. 
Where the parking ticket forfeiture is not paid within 45 days after 6:00 p.m. of the day of violation, the Police Department may then issue a citation for such violation and the matter shall proceed as otherwise set forth in this chapter.
