An ordinance violation is a charge issued by a municipal government for violating local municipal rules. An ordinance violation is not considered a criminal matter. Ordinance violations are not recorded as criminal charges and no criminal record results from an ordinance violation conviction.
Town ordinances can be found in the Town of Normal Municipal Code. Your ticket lists the municipal code section you are alleged to have violated.
You have two options:
Most fines range from $25 to $500. Fines are generally listed on the ordinance violation ticket. If you cannot locate the fine amount on the ticket, you can view the fine by searching for your ticket through the Town’s online ordinance violation payment portal or by calling the Legal Department at (309) 454-9507.
Court assessments are in addition to the fine and are included after a guilty plea or guilty verdict in court. Assessments on ordinance violation cases are $100.
Multiple Offenses: If you receive more than one ordinance violation citation arising out of a single incident, pay only the most serious charge (the highest settlement amount.) If the charge due is the same dollar amount on multiple citations, you can decide which violation you pay. If you receive multiple violations and any one of these does not appear on the list on the front, call the Legal Department at (309) 454-9507. Payment of the most serious offense will cause the other offenses to be dismissed.
