[Amended 8-29-2011 by L.L. No. 12-2011]
Any person who shall violate or fail to comply with any of the provisions of this article, or who shall counsel, aid or abet any such violation or failure to comply, shall be deemed guilty of disorderly conduct and shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $50 or by imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, either or both penalties to be imposed at the discretion of the court; provided, nevertheless, that should the violation consist solely of parking or standing a vehicle beyond the lawful time as is provided in § 309-25 of this article, upon due notification of such violation to the operator or owner of such vehicle, the payment of a fine in such amount and payable under such conditions as may be determined by the Village Justice pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62 of this Code, with a plea of guilty, shall be considered settlement in full of any and all penalties hereunder; and provided, further, that the privilege of paying such fine shall be limited to an owner or operator who is guilty of such violation as a first offense. An operator or owner guilty of second or further violations shall be subject to the imposition of all the penalties as may be imposed by the Village Justice.
Failure to pay as hereby provided or to appear voluntarily in court will subject the operator or owner of such vehicle to a warrant for arrest and the imposition of such penalties as the law may provide.
