In addition to any civil remedies provided by state law, and except in cases where a different penalty is prescribed by ordinance, failure to perform any act required, or the performance of any act prohibited by any ordinance of the city of Omak is designated as a civil infraction and shall not be classified as a criminal offense.

Any person, firm or corporation found to have committed a civil infraction shall be assessed a monetary penalty, which penalty may not exceed five hundred dollars for each offense.

Each day during which a violation continues shall be deemed a separate offense and separate penalties may be assessed for each separate offense.

Whenever a monetary penalty is imposed by a court for violation of a city ordinance, it is payable immediately. (Ord. 1289 § 1, 1995).
