1.10.010 Limitation of penalties.

Where any city ordinance is substantially similar to a state statute, the maximum and minimum penalties of both fines and terms of imprisonment shall be limited to the maximum and minimum penalties provided for in the substantially similar state statute. The provisions of this section shall not be construed to affect penalties provided by city ordinance which are less severe than the penalties provided for in a substantially similar state statute. For purposes of this chapter, a state statute is substantially similar to a city ordinance if the same conduct is proscribed and the elements of the crime, offense, violation, or infraction are the same. (Ord. 300 § 1, 1987)

1.10.020 Penalties.

Any person violating any ordinance of this city which does not provide a penalty in the ordinance shall, upon conviction thereof, be deemed guilty of a violation and fined an amount not to exceed $1,000 for each violation. (Ord. 486 § 2, 2009; Ord. 71 § 1, 1971)
