Penalties for Non-Payment

If payment of an Administrative Citation is not received within 30 days of issuance of the citation, a 50% penalty will be added. If payment is still not received within an additional 30 days another penalty of 50% will be added.

The failure of any person to pay the penalty assessed by the Administrative Citation within the time specified on the citation or on the invoice from the County or its designated collection/processing agent may result in Notification to the State Franchise Tax Board, or any agency pursuing legal remedies to collect the unpaid penalties. Payment of the citation does not relieve the responsibility to correct the violation(s) and shall not bar further enforcement by the County.
