Unless otherwise specifically provided in connection with particular sections, chapters or titles of the city code, noncriminal violations of the city code shall be infractions and shall carry a maximum penalty of $250.00. Each day, location, violator and incident shall constitute a separate civil infraction. In addition to this amount, a court of competent jurisdiction may order a person found to have committed a civil infraction to pay restitution, including the city’s reasonable enforcement and abatement costs.

It is provided, however, that if the same violator has been found, in any court of competent jurisdiction, to have previously committed an infraction violation for the same or similar conduct three or more separate times, with the infraction violations occurring at the same location and involving the same or similar sections of ACC Titles 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17 or 18, or other similar code(s), any further violations shall constitute misdemeanors, punishable as provided in ACC 1.24.010. For the purposes hereof, it shall be prima facie evidence that the same violator has previously been found to have committed any infraction if a certified copy of the judgment, docket or other court document showing that such violation was found committed is filed with the court. (Ord. 6857 § 2 (Exh. B), 2022; Ord. 6615 § 6, 2016; Ord. 5837 § 2, 2004; Ord. 5677 § 2, 2002.)
