A. Failure of any person to comply with the requirements of the Wood Village Municipal Code (“Code”), of any state statute, county or municipal ordinance incorporated by reference in this Code, or of any of the terms and conditions of any permit or approval issued by the City pursuant to this Code, is hereby deemed a civil infraction, or, in the case of such failure to comply with the Building Code, a civil violation, punishable as provided herein. Every day during which such civil infraction or civil violation is committed, continued or permitted to continue, shall be a separate offense. Any such civil infraction or civil violation includes causing, allowing, permitting, aiding, abetting, or concealing such offense.
B. A civil infraction is declared to be an offense, but not a crime, and is enforced pursuant to Sections 1.06.020 and 1.06.030. It is intended to be an offense which can be disposed of in all respects as a civil proceeding and not governed by procedural, evidentiary, substantive and constitutional rules applicable to criminal charges and proceedings. A person adjudged responsible for an infraction shall not be deemed “guilty” of the infraction and a judgment of responsibility shall not be deemed a “conviction” for any purpose.
C. A civil violation is not a crime or an offense, but is an administrative penalty imposed pursuant to Section 1.06.035.
D. Maximum penalties for civil infractions or civil violations shall be as follows:
- A civil penalty of not more than $1000.00 per offense, or such lesser sum as may be provided in the ordinance defining the offense.
- Notwithstanding subsection (D)(1) of this section or any other provision in this Code to the contrary, no greater penalty shall be imposed for any civil infraction or civil violation under this Code than the maximum penalty prescribed under Oregon Statute for the same offense.
E. In establishing the amount of any civil penalty under subsection (D) of this section, a court, or, in the case of a civil violation, the Building Official or City Manager, should consider any of the following factors deemed relevant:
- The actions taken by the person or entity to mitigate or correct the violation;
- The financial condition of the person or entity charged with the violation;
- Whether the violation or the failure to comply is repeated or continuous in nature;
- The magnitude or gravity of the violation or failure to comply;
- The cooperativeness of the person or entity with the city;
- The cost to the city of investigating, correcting, attempting to correct and/or prosecuting the violation or failure; and
- Any other factor deemed by the court, the Building Official, or the City Manager to be relevant.
F. For the purpose of facilitating disposition of infractions, the court may promulgate a schedule of forfeitures for particular infractions, and the person charged with such an infraction may deposit with the court the amount so scheduled, waive further appearance, and have the sum so deposited forfeited as a plea of “no contest.” The court shall not, however, be bound by the schedule on appearance and admission by the person charged, or on trial and judgment against the person charged; the court in such a case may impose any forfeiture allowed by this section.
1.06.020 Citation for civil infractions
Upon a determination by a duly authorized officer that one or more civil infractions have occurred, the officer shall issue a citation to the person, who in the officer’s opinion, is responsible for the activity or failure to act that is deemed to be the civil infraction(s) or the owner or person responsible for the property where the infraction occurred.

1.06.035 Procedures for Civil Violations
A. Notice of Violation. Upon a determination by the Building Official that a person has committed a civil violation of the Building Code as defined in Section 1.06.010(A), the building official may issue a notice of civil violation and impose upon the violator or other responsible person an administrative civil penalty as described in Section 1.06.010(D) and (E). For the purposes of this section, a “responsible person” includes the violator, and if the violator is not the owner of the building or property at which the violation occurs, may include the owner as well. If no appeal is filed as provided in this section, the civil penalty shall become final upon expiration of the appeal period.
B. Contents of Notice. The notice shall:

At the hearing, the appellant may present testimony and oral argument personally or by counsel. The burden of proof shall be on the Building Official. The hearing will begin with a staff report from Building Official, followed by the appellant’s presentation, followed by response from the Building Official, if any, followed by any rebuttal by the appellant, if any.
F. Decision on Appeal. The City Council or designee shall issue a written decision within ten days of the date of the hearing and shall mail a copy of the decision to the appellant. The written decision of the City Council or designee is final as of the date of issuance.
G. If a notice of revocation of a license or permit is the subject of the appeal, the revocation does not take effect until final determination of the appeal. Notwithstanding this paragraph, an emergency suspension shall take effect upon issuance of the notice of suspension.
H. Failure to pay a penalty imposed hereunder within ten days of the date the penalty becomes final as provided in Sections 1.06.035(A) or (F) of this section, which ever is applicable, shall constitute a civil violation of this Code as provided in Section 1.06.010(A). Unpaid penalties shall accrue interest from the date due as provided in Section 1.06.050 and may be collected pursuant to 1.06.060. In addition to any other enforcement mechanisms provided in this Code, failure to pay an administrative civil penalty when due shall be grounds for withholding issuance of requested permits or licenses, issuance of a stop work order, if applicable, or revocation or suspension of any issued permits or certificates of occupancy.

Any unpaid fees, late payment charges, abatement charges, or fines assessed against a person arising from noncompliance with the Wood Village Municipal Code with regard to the person’s real property constitute a debt to the City.
