When issued a Notice of Violation, it is mailed to the owner or lessee of the vehicle indicating a fine amount of $100. The violation notice needs to be contested or paid (in full) by or before the "Contest By" or "Pay By" date shown on the notice. If no action is taken, a Determination of Liability will be entered against the registered owner or lessee of the vehicle. As a result of the failure to pay the Determination of Liability Violation, a Final Determination of Violation Liability will be issued to the owner or lessee of the vehicle. The Final Determination of Violation Liability includes a late penalty of $100. The payment of the fine amount listed on the Final Determination of Violation Liability is required by or before the "Pay By" date shown on the notice, if this is not paid, the City of Hometown will take further enforcement and collection action.
