This section is included in your selections.

(1) A delinquency charge for failure to comply with any provision of Section 6-1-40 above shall accrue five (5) days after a license is required in the amount of fifteen dollars ($15.00), or up to five percent (5%) per month (or fraction thereof), not to exceed a total of twenty-five percent (25%) of the amount due, whichever is greater.

(2) The Town may issue a summons and complaint sixty (60) days after the business license fee is due, charging a person with failure to comply with this Article. A violation of any part of this Article is punishable for each day of violation by a maximum penalty as set forth in Paragraph 1-4-10(a)(1) of this Code. A minimum fine, in the amount of one-half percent (.5%) per day of the amount of the business license fee for each day of noncompliance from the date the fee is due through the date of sentencing, is mandatory and may not be suspended by the court. Each day of violation is a separate offense.

(4) All these remedies shall be in addition to all other remedies and penalties provided for by local ordinance or available at law. (Prior code 5.04.100)
