[Adopted 1-19-1993 (Art. I, §§ J, K, L, of the 1993 Code)]
Any person violating any provision of this Code for which another penalty is not specifically prescribed shall be fined as set forth in Chapter 248, Fines, for each offense. The Circuit Court or Administrative Law Judge may, in addition to assessing a fine, impose a requirement that the defendant perform some reasonable public service work such as, but not limited to, the picking up of litter in public parks or along public streets or highways or the maintenance of public facilities.
[Amended 9-19-1995 by Ord. No. 3832; 3-3-2009 by Ord. No. 6448]
A judgment of a fine imposed on an offender may be enforced in the same manner as a judgment entered in a civil action; provided, however, that in such judgment imposing the fine the court may further order that upon nonpayment of such fine, the offender may be imprisoned until the fine is paid or satisfied at the rate of $5 per day of imprisonment; provided, further, however, that no person shall be imprisoned under the first proviso hereof for a longer period than six months.
Unless otherwise expressly provided, the penalty provisions of this Code shall apply to all amendments, including any additions to or deletions from any article or portion thereof.
Any person arrested for a violation of any provision of a City ordinance shall be released upon proper bail being furnished as required by law, provided that any arrested person may at his/her own request have the amount of such bail set by a Magistrate, as provided by law.
Any person detained for violation of a City ordinance who does not supply bail and against whom a fine is levied upon conviction shall be allowed a credit of $2 for each day of incarceration prior to conviction, up to, but not exceeding the amount of the fine levied.
