[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Harrisburg 6-27-2006 by Ord. No. 7-2006. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Whoever violates any provision of Part 3, General Offenses, of Title 3 shall, upon conviction thereof, be guilty of a summary offense for each separate violation respectively and, where no specific penalty or fine is provided therefor, subject to a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $1,000 plus costs or imprisonment in the Dauphin County prison for not more than 90 days for each separate violation, or both. Further, any personal property, including a motor vehicle, used in connection with activity that violates any provision of Part 3, General Offenses, of Title 3 may be seized at the time of arrest and permanently forfeited upon conviction for such violation as part of the penalty for such violation or pursuant to other provisions of City or state law.
The application of the above penalty shall not prevent the City from pursuing any other remedy available at law or equity for enforcement of Part 3, General Offenses, of Title 3. Prosecution for violation of a provision of Part 3, General Offenses, of Title 3 shall not exclude prosecution for violation of any other applicable City, state or federal law but rather shall be in addition thereto.
Upon conviction for a violation of any provision of Part 3, General Offenses, of Title 3 pursuant to Subsection A, in addition to any fines, fees or penalties levied in accordance with Subsection A, an additional neighborhood mitigation penalty shall be levied in the amount of $25. All such penalties levied and collected by any division of the Unified Judicial System existing under Section 1 of Article V of the Constitution of Pennsylvania and 42 Pa.C.S.A. § 301 shall be remitted to the City for deposit into the Neighborhood Mitigation Fund to finance additional community and neighborhood policing programs and operations throughout the City. If the fine is paid in installments, the proportionate amount of the neighborhood mitigation penalty shall be remitted on each installment.
