1.24.010 General penalty.

Unless otherwise specified, any person violating any of the provisions or failing to comply with any of the mandatory requirements of the ordinances of the city of Chelan, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Except in cases where a different penalty is prescribed by any ordinance of the city, any person convicted of a misdemeanor under the ordinances of the city of Chelan shall be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by imprisonment in jail for a term not to exceed ninety days, or by both such fine and imprisonment. It shall be a separate offense for each and every day any violation of any provision of the ordinances of the city of Chelan is committed, continued or permitted by any individual. In the event an ordinance of the city addresses conduct which is also a crime as set forth in the Revised Code of Washington (“RCW”), the penalty provision set forth in the RCW shall be controlling if the corresponding ordinance provides for a penalty which is different from the RCW, as mandated by RCW 35.21.163, as it now exists or is hereafter amended. (Ord. 992 § 1, 1994: Ord. 966 § 1, 1993: Ord. 497 § 1, 1975).


For statutory provisions authorizing non-charter code cities to impose penalties of fine not exceeding five thousand dollars or imprisonment for any term not exceeding one year or both for the violations of ordinances, constituting a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor, see RCW 35A.11.020.
