ISIS is ISRAEL

“The state of Israel must invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the methods of provocation and revenge… And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.” — From the diary of Moshe Sharett, Israeli’s first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and Prime Minister from1954-1956.

ISIS is Israel’s invented danger to provoke a war with the Arab world so they can steal Palestinian land!

Israeli jews hate Snowden and all the NSA leaks, jews caught spying on Americans

A lot of servers are based in Israel, from Facebook to news sites, video sites like YouTube. etc.

 

All leads back to the zionist jews who have always been watching you. Even the presidential candidates have to suck dick to Israel at every election, they know who controls the USA.

 

First it was England in control of the USA, now it’s Israel. Don’t be fooled, it’s Israel who controls the USA.

They put jews in all position of power to keep control. Notice all the lawmakers against Snowden are jews with allegiance to Israel first and foremost, they are religious nuts.

Cancer research and donations are a scam, stop donating to cancer research, it only funds the elite

Cancer is caused by everything around us, from McDonalds to laundry detergent. Cancer research for over 25 years plus is a major money making scam.
Just like Food Banks.

 

Stop donating to cancer research and to food banks. No one is fucking hungry in America with the food stamps that are out there.

John Bills took the zionist jewish company Redflex up his ass, where are the criminal charges on all these people?

http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/40/4022.asp

Largest Red Light Camera Program In World Faces Widened Corruption Probe
Redflex loses red light camera contract in Chicago, Illinois following investigation into corruption.

Max Findlay, Ian DavisThe Australian Securities Exchange allowed trading to resume on Redflex stock this morning. On Thursday, the photo enforcement firm had requested a trading halt to prevent a massive sell-off as news leaked of a widening corruption probe in Chicago, Illinois. The Chicago Tribune’s report that a city official apparently took bribes from the company in the form of luxury trips and sporting tickets was confirmed by an official investigation. On Friday, Redflex received notice from the city that it will “not be considered a responsible bidder” for the red light camera contract that comes up for renewal on July 31. That means the firm will lose 384 cameras, the single largest red light camera contract in the world.

The news hit Redflex hard. In 2012, the company reported a net profit before tax of $21.3 million. It announced Monday the figure through December will drop to $5.5 million or possibly less as legal costs mount. As the firm paid $6.2 million in tax last year, that means the firm could post a loss for the year. Redflex fortunes have depended heavily on the Windy City, which generated 13 percent of the firm’s revenue and represented 19 percent of its installed camera base. The contract value totaled $84 million and was set to generate even more cash on the way to 440 installed cameras in upcoming years. Because Chicago takes ownership of the cameras upon contract termination, Redflex will also lose a significant investment in equipment, which was $11.3 million as of 2010.

Upon the market’s opening Monday, shares plunged 24 percent from $1.55 to $1.28. Shareholders have been upset since last November, when they issued a first strike against the company’s lavish executive compensation package. On Wednesday, Max Findlay, the chairman of the board and Ian Davis, a director, were forced to resign in light of their reported role in the unfolding Chicago incident.

So far, Redflex admits it paid for luxury accommodations for John Bills, the Chicago official in charge of the red light camera contract, in violation of city ethics rules. This is nothing out of the ordinary for the industry. In 2010, the Australian firm also put the police chief of Oak Ridge, Tennessee up at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in return for his favorable testimony at a court trial two years ago. Affiliated Computer Services (ACS, now a part of Xerox) was caught giving hockey tickets and other services to police officers in Edmonton, Canada, although criminal charges were ultimately dropped. American Traffic Solutions (ATS) regularly entertains public officials involved in red light camera business, but the airfare, lodging and wages during the event is paid for by taxpayers, not ATS.

According to court records, the Edmonton police officer who recommended ACS for a no-bid photo ticketing contract had an affair with an ACS employee. The officer’s ex-wife testified the cop had been so cooperative with ACS because he expected to land a lucrative job with ACS upon retirement. The hiring of former municipal officials who have helped companies land lucrative deals has become so routine that municipal officials expect it to happen. This was the case with a traffic sergeant in Lynnwood, Washington who went as far as to use his official position to advertise on behalf of ATS. The former mayor of St. Peters, Missouri spent a year in jail after he solicited a bribe from Redflex on a deal that was not worth much money to the company.

A privacy watchdog has uncovered a government memo that encourages federal agents to befriend people on a variety of social networks, to take advantage of their readiness to share — and to spy on them. In response to a Freedom of Information request, the government released a handful of documents, including a May 2008 memo detailing how social-networking sites are exploited by the Office of Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS).

As of Thursday morning, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Digg had not commented on the report, which details the official government program to spy via social networking. Other websites the government is spying on include Twitter, MySpace, Craigslist and Wikipedia, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which filed the FOIA request.

“Narcissistic tendencies in many people fuel a need to have a large group of ‘friends’ link to their pages, and many of these people accept cyber-friends that they don’t even know,” stated one of the documents obtained by the EFF. “This provides an excellent vantage point for FDNS to observe the daily life of beneficiaries and petitioners who are suspected of fraudulent activities,” it said.

According to the EFF, this memo — which specifically details how the government evaluates potential citizen requests — suggests there’s nothing to prevent an exaggerated, harmless or even out-of-date offhand comment in a status update from quickly becoming the subject of a full investigation.

With this revelation, the government joins a growing list of groups using social-networking sites for purposes other than social networking. As these sites have gained popularity, scammers and spammers have become rampant, and hackers are increasingly turning to networks such as Facebook to spread viruses and Trojan Horses.

The EFF also uncovered efforts by the Department of Homeland Security to monitor social media during the inauguration of President Obama. According to the documents, the DHS collected a massive amount of data on individuals and organizations explicitly tied to the event.

The DHS notably attempted to ensure that its use of social networks was appropriate while gathering data online. The newly released documents cite the Fair Information Practices Principles, a 2008 policy memo by the Department of Homeland Security’s chief privacy officer that set guidelines for ensuring online privacy during the collection of information.

Another government agency, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, denies using social networks to spy on people.

“USCIS does not permit agency personnel to attempt to ‘friend’ immigration petitioners and their beneficiaries on social networks in an effort to reveal fraud.”

Still, the EFF worries that the DHS may be taking things too far. “While it is laudable to see DHS discussing the Fair Information Practice Principles as part of the design for such a project, the breadth of sites targeted is concerning,” the watchdog group wrote on its website.

Among the networks specifically cited for analysis “were general social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as sites that focus specifically on certain demographic groups such as MiGente and BlackPlanet, news sites such as NPR, and political commentary sites DailyKos,” the EFF wrote.

At the hearing, the alleged responsible person shall have the opportunity to testify, present evidence, and to cross- examine witnesses concerning the administrative parking citation. The alleged responsible person may appear personally or through an attorney. Telephonic appearances may be allowed at the discretion of the hearing officer. Prehearing discovery is not authorized. The Authority and alleged responsible persons are authorized by this Ordinance to subpoena relevant witnesses and documents in accordance with policies and procedures established by the Governing Board of the Authority. Disobedience of such subpoenas, or the refusal to testify (upon other than constitutional grounds), shall constitute a misdemeanor violation of this Ordinance. The hearing officer may conduct the hearing informally, both as to rules of procedure and admission of evidence, he or she may consider and make findings in any manner which will provide a fair hearing, and may continue the hearing to obtain additional evidence. Unless otherwise required, the presence of the issuing ranger at the hearing is not mandatory.

15
an administrative hearing by written declaration signed under penalty of perjury. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall prescribe the procedures to be followed when a hearing is conducted by written declaration.
(c) Failure to appear. The unexcused failure of any alleged responsible person to appear at the hearing after proper notice or, in the alternative, to present written or demonstrative evidence shall constitute an admission of the violation by the alleged responsible person and an exhaustion of administrative remedies that may bar judicial review. Refusal to participate in said hearing through one of the methods prescribed herein or engaging in behavior disruptive to the hearing may, at the sole discretion of the hearing officer, constitute failure to appear for the purposes of this section.
(d) Withdrawal of hearing request. Any person who has requested a hearing on the issuance of an administrative parking citation may withdraw said request upon written notice to the Authority. A withdrawal under this section shall constitute a forfeiture of any advance deposit of administrative penalty and/or costs and shall constitute a waiver of any right to challenge the underlying administrative citation. A withdrawal under this section shall also be a bar to judicial review of the administrative parking citation for failure to exhaust administrative remedies.
§ 6.1.7. Administrative order – administrative parking citations issued pursuant to § 6.1. (a) Decision of the hearing officer. After considering all the testimony and evidence submitted at the hearing, the hearing officer shall determine if the responsible person is liable for the underlying violation by a preponderance of the evidence.

Failure to pay the assessed penalties by the date specified in the citation will result in a notice of delinquency. Failure to pay the fine by the date specified in the notice of delinquency will result in a doubling of the citation amount. Unpaid fines may be enforced as a personal obligation of the responsible person, which shall remain in effect until all of the
16
administrative penalties, interest and all other applicable costs are paid in full and shall be collectable by the Authority by all lawful means of collection, including the utilization of third party collections providers. Unpaid administrative penalties and costs may be reported to appropriate credit reporting agencies.

(d) Reduction of misdemeanors. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, in the interest of justice, any violation of this Ordinance otherwise punishable as a misdemeanor may be subject to a reduced administrative penalty pursuant to § 6.2.1(a) at the sole discretion of the Authority.
§ 6.2.2. Administrative citation hearing. (a) Request for administrative citation hearing. Any recipient of an administrative citation pursuant to § 6.2 may contest it before the hearing officer by requesting a hearing in writing and submitting an advance deposit of the administrative penalty within thirty (30) calendar days from the date the administrative citation is served. The request for hearing will be considered complete only upon receipt of written request and advance deposit, or advance deposit hardship waiver pursuant to subsection (b).
(b) Advance deposit – traffic control violations. Notwithstanding subsection (a) above, the advance deposit required to secure a hearing on any administrative citation issued for a violation of § 4.0 shall not exceed twenty five percent (25%) of the total administrative penalty.
(c) Advance deposit hardship waiver. In lieu of the advance deposit, any person who requests a hearing to contest an administrative citation may request in writing an advance deposit hardship waiver, including the reasons for the request. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee may issue an advance deposit hardship waiver if he or she is satisfied that the person is unable to deposit the full amount of the penalty in advance of the hearing. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall issue a written determination of whether to issue the advance deposit hardship waiver. The written determination shall be final, subject only to judicial review as provided by law.
18
If the Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee determines not to issue an advance deposit hardship waiver, the person shall remit the deposit to the Authority within ten (10) calendar days of the date of that decision in order to secure the hearing.
(d) Payment of administrative penalties. Any person who has made a partial deposit pursuant to subsection (b) of this Section or has received an advance deposit hardship waiver pursuant to subsection (c) of this Section who is found liable for the underlying violation by the administrative hearing officer shall remit the balance of the full administrative penalties pursuant to the administrative Order.
§ 6.2.3. Hearing officer. All hearings on administrative citations shall be heard and conducted by a hearing officer. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall designate a hearing officer for administrative hearings who shall not be the citing enforcement officer and who shall be an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California or a retired judicial officer of the State of California. The employment, performance evaluation, compensation and/or benefits of the hearing officer shall not be directly or indirectly conditioned upon the amount of administrative penalties or the rulings upheld, revised or otherwise issued by the hearing officer.
§ 6.2.4. Notice and time of hearing – Administrative citation hearings. Written notice of hearing shall be served on any person to whom the citation was addressed pursuant to § 6.2 and shall contain the date, time, and place at which the hearing shall be conducted. The hearing shall be set for a date that is not less than fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of the mailing of the notice of hearing. The hearing must be held within sixty (60) calendar days of the request of the hearing by recipient of an administrative citation. The hearing officer may approve a continuance of the hearing to any date for good cause.
§ 6.2.5. Hearing procedure. (a) Evidence and testimony. All oral and written evidence presented at the hearing shall be presented under oath and under the penalty of perjury, except that the administrative citation and any additional report submitted by the park ranger, shall be admissible and shall constitute prima facie and presumptive evidence of the respective facts contained in those documents. At the hearing, the alleged responsible person shall have the opportunity to testify, present evidence, and to cross- examine witnesses concerning the administrative citation. The alleged responsible person may appear personally or through an attorney. Telephonic appearances may be allowed at the discretion of the hearing officer. Prehearing discovery is not authorized. The Authority and alleged responsible persons are authorized by this Ordinance to subpoena relevant witnesses and documents in accordance with policies and procedures established by the Governing Board of the Authority. Disobedience of such subpoenas, or the refusal to testify (upon other than constitutional grounds), shall constitute a misdemeanor violation of this Ordinance. The hearing officer may conduct the hearing informally, both as to rules of procedure and admission of evidence, he or she may consider and make findings in any manner which will provide a fair hearing, and may continue the hearing to obtain additional evidence. Unless otherwise required, the presence of the issuing ranger at the hearing is not mandatory.
(b) Hearing by written declaration. In lieu of personal appearance, any alleged responsible person subject to an administrative citation may elect to proceed with an
19
administrative hearing by written declaration signed under penalty of perjury. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall prescribe the procedures to be followed when a hearing is conducted by written declaration.
(c) Failure to appear. The unexcused failure of any alleged responsible person to appear at the hearing after proper notice or, in the alternative, to present written or demonstrative evidence shall constitute an admission of the violation by the alleged responsible person and an exhaustion of administrative remedies that may bar judicial review. Refusal to participate in said hearing through one of the methods prescribed herein or engaging in behavior disruptive to the hearing may, at the sole discretion of the hearing officer, constitute failure to appear for the purposes of this section.
(d) Withdrawal of hearing request. Any person who has requested a hearing on the issuance of an administrative citation may withdraw said request upon written notice to the Authority. A withdrawal under this section shall constitute a forfeiture of any advance deposit of administrative penalty and/or costs and shall constitute a waiver of any right to challenge the underlying administrative citation. A withdrawal under this section shall also be a bar to judicial review of the administrative citation for failure to exhaust administrative remedies.
§ 6.2.6. Administrative order – administrative citations issued pursuant to § 6.2. (a) Decision of the hearing officer. After considering all the testimony and evidence submitted at the hearing, the hearing officer shall determine if the responsible person is liable for the underlying violation by a preponderance of the evidence. The hearing officer shall issue a written administrative order, including findings regarding the existence of each violation and notice of the right to judicial review, at the hearing or within thirty (30) calendar days following completion of the hearing. The responsible person shall be served with a copy of the administrative order at the hearing or within ten (10) calendar days following its issuance. The administrative order shall be final upon service on the responsible person, subject only to judicial review as allowed by law.
(b) Penalty. If the hearing officer determines that the responsible person committed the violation alleged by a preponderance of the evidence, the hearing officer shall assess the administrative penalty specified in § 6.2.1 and any administrative costs established pursuant to subdivision (c) of this section. In cases of extreme hardship or in the interest of justice the hearing officer may reduce or suspend the administrative penalty specified in § 6.2.1. The hearing officer shall set a date the balance of the penalty and any administrative costs shall be due and payable, which date shall ordinarily be thirty (30) calendar days from date of service of the administrative order, unless for good cause the hearing officer extends such date. If the hearing officer finds that the administrative citation should not be sustained or that the amount of the administrative penalty should be reduced, the Authority shall refund the amount within thirty (30) calendar days of the service of the order.
(c) Administrative costs. The hearing officer may impose administrative costs, including any and all costs incurred by the Authority in connection with the matter before the hearing officer, including, but not limited to, investigation, staffing costs incurred in preparation for the hearing and for the hearing itself. In no case shall the cost of the hearing officer himself or herself be included in any costs assessed against the responsible person.
20
§ 6.2.7. Failure to pay administrative penalties and costs and failure to comply with administrative order. (a) Administrative penalties and costs assessed by the hearing officer shall be due by the date specified in an administrative order issued pursuant to § 6.2.6 . Failure to pay the assessed administrative penalties and/or administrative costs specified in the administrative order may be enforced as a personal obligation of the responsible person, which shall remain in effect until all of the administrative penalties, interest and administrative costs are paid in full and shall be collectable by the Authority by all lawful means of collection, including the utilization of third party collections providers. Unpaid administrative penalties and costs may be reported to appropriate credit reporting agencies. In addition to all other means of enforcement, if the violation is in connection with real property, the Authority may place a lien on the real property which shall remain in effect until all the administrative penalties and costs, plus interest, are paid in full, and/or until responsible person achieves full compliance with any and all conditions in the administrative order.
(b) Late payment charges. Late payment charges of ten percent (10%) per month, simple interest on the delinquent amount, shall accrue and are payable. If the delinquent amount has not been paid within sixty (60) calendar days of the date set for payment then a twenty five percent (25%) nonpayment penalty shall be added to the principal amount due, and thereafter interest shall accrue on the delinquent amount plus the nonpayment penalty.
(c) Failure to pay administrative costs within the time allowed under this chapter shall constitute a violation of this code punishable as a misdemeanor and shall further be subject to collection as otherwise provided for administrative penalties herein.
(d) Lien procedure. Upon the responsible person’s failure to pay administrative penalties and costs as ordered by the hearing officer or by the superior court, the Authority may record a judgment lien against responsible person’s real property pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure §§ 674 and 697.310, et seq.
§ 6.2.8. Judicial review. Any person subject to a decision of the hearing officer may obtain judicial review of the decision in the superior court pursuant to the provisions of California Government Code § 53069.4.
§ 6.3. Administrative compliance orders. (a) Authorization. This section provides for the issuance of administrative compliance orders, as authorized pursuant to Government Code § 53069.4. In addition to any other legal remedies, including, but not limited to, criminal penalties, injunctive relief, specific performance, civil damages, and any other remedy which may be pursued by the Authority to address any violation of this Ordinance, the Chief Ranger, enforcement officer, or any park ranger, or other employee designated by the Chief Ranger, may issue a written compliance order for any violation of this Ordinance. Administrative penalties may accrue immediately upon issuance of a compliance order, subject to the provisions of Government Code § 53069.4(a)(2).
(b) Contents of administrative compliance order. A compliance order issued pursuant to this section shall contain the following information: the date and location of the violation; the section of this Ordinance violated and a description of the violation; all actions required to correct the violation; and the amount of the administrative penalty or
21
penalties. At the discretion of the Chief Ranger or enforcement officer, or as required by Government Code § 53069.4(a)(2), the compliance order shall also indicate a reasonable time period after which administrative penalties will begin to accrue if compliance with the order has not been achieved. The responsible person shall remain liable for and shall pay all Administrative Costs associated with the compliance order. Correction of underlying violation shall not absolve responsible person from this obligation.
(c) Willful violations. If the Chief Ranger or enforcement officer determines that a violation of this Ordinance giving rise to issuance of an administrative compliance order was done so willfully, daily administrative penalties shall begin to accrue upon issuance of compliance order.
(d) Compliance and failure to comply. If the Chief Ranger or the designated park ranger or enforcement officer determines that all violations have been corrected within the time specified in the compliance order or within any amended orders, he or she shall so advise each party to whom the compliance order was addressed. If full compliance is not achieved within the time specified in the compliance order or within any amended orders, the Chief Ranger or the designated park ranger or employee shall schedule a hearing before the hearing officer.
(e) Administrative order by hearing officer. Upon consideration of evidence presented at the administrative hearing, the hearing officer shall issue a written administrative order, pursuant to this section. The administrative order of the hearing officer shall be final, subject only to judicial review as authorized by law. The hearing officer shall have continuing jurisdiction over administrative compliance orders until the underlying violation has been remedied or the matter has been otherwise resolved.
§ 6.3.1. Hearing officer. All hearings on administrative compliance orders shall be heard and conducted by a hearing officer. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall designate a hearing officer for administrative hearings who shall not be the citing enforcement officer and who shall be an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California or a retired judicial officer of the State of California. The employment, performance evaluation, compensation and/or benefits of the hearing officer shall not be directly or indirectly conditioned upon the amount of administrative penalties or the rulings upheld, revised or otherwise issued by the hearing officer.
§ 6.3.2. Notice and time of hearing – Administrative compliance order hearings. Written notice of hearing shall be served on any person or persons to whom the order was addressed pursuant to § 6.3 and shall contain the date, time, and place at which the hearing shall be conducted. The hearing shall be set for a date that is not less than fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of the notice of hearing. The hearing officer may approve a continuance of the hearing to any date for good cause.
§ 6.3.3. Hearing procedure. (a) Evidence and testimony. All oral and written evidence presented at the hearing shall be presented under oath and under the penalty of perjury except that the administrative citation and any additional report submitted by the park ranger, shall be admissible and shall constitute prima facie and presumptive evidence of the respective facts contained in those documents. At the hearing, the alleged responsible person shall have the opportunity to testify, present evidence, and to cross-
22
examine witnesses concerning the administrative compliance order. The alleged responsible person may appear personally or through an attorney. Telephonic appearances may be allowed at the discretion of the hearing officer. Prehearing discovery is not authorized. The Authority and alleged responsible persons are authorized by this Ordinance to subpoena relevant witnesses and documents in accordance with policies and procedures established by the Governing Board of the Authority. Disobedience of such subpoenas, or the refusal to testify (upon other than constitutional grounds), shall constitute a misdemeanor violation of this Ordinance. The hearing officer may conduct the hearing informally, both as to rules of procedure and admission of evidence, he or she may consider and make findings in any manner which will provide a fair hearing, and may continue the hearing to obtain additional evidence. Unless otherwise required, the presence of the issuing ranger at the hearing is not mandatory.
(b) Hearing by written declaration. In lieu of personal appearance, any alleged responsible person subject to an administrative compliance order may elect to proceed with an administrative hearing by written declaration signed under penalty of perjury. The Executive Officer or the Executive Officer’s designee shall prescribe the procedures to be followed when a hearing is conducted by written declaration.
(c) Failure to appear. The unexcused failure of any alleged responsible person to appear at the hearing after proper notice or, in the alternative, to present written or demonstrative evidence shall constitute an admission of the violation by the alleged responsible person and an exhaustion of administrative remedies that may bar judicial review. Refusal to participate in said hearing through one of the methods prescribed herein or engaging in behavior disruptive to the hearing may, at the sole discretion of the hearing officer, constitute failure to appear for the purposes of this section.
(d) Withdrawal of hearing request. Any person who has requested a hearing on the issuance of an administrative compliance order may withdraw said request upon written notice to the Authority. A withdrawal under this section shall constitute a forfeiture of any advance deposit of administrative penalty and/or costs and shall constitute a waiver of any right to challenge the underlying administrative compliance order. A withdrawal under this section shall also be a bar to judicial review of the administrative citation for failure to exhaust administrative remedies.
§ 6.3.4. Decision and administrative order of the hearing officer. (a) Decision of the hearing officer. The hearing officer shall consider any written or oral evidence consistent with ascertainment of the facts regarding the violation and compliance with the order. Within a reasonable time following the conclusion of the hearing, the hearing officer shall decide the issues at question, based on a preponderance of the evidence presented at the hearing, and make findings and issue a decision regarding the existence of the violations, the extent of compliance with the compliance orders issued by the Authority, and the amount of applicable administrative penalties, costs, and further action required.
(b) Findings – violations. The hearing officer shall issue written findings on each violation of this Ordinance alleged by the Authority. The findings shall be supported by evidence received at the hearing. If the hearing officer finds by a preponderance of the evidence that a violation has occurred and that the violation was not corrected within any
23
applicable time period specified in the compliance order, those findings shall be included in the administrative order. If the hearing officer finds that no violation has occurred or that the violation was corrected within the time period specified in the compliance order, the hearing officer shall issue a finding of those facts in the administrative order.
(c) Findings – penalties, costs and corrections. If the hearing officer determines that a violation occurred which was not corrected within the time specified in the compliance order, the administrative order shall impose on the responsible persons all of the following, if applicable:
(1) Administrative penalties as provided in § 6.3.6, and (2) Administrative costs as provided in § 6.3.7.
§ 6.3.5. Administrative penalties. (a) The hearing officer shall impose administrative penalties for each day during which a violation is maintained after the date when compliance was ordered to be achieved. The amount of the daily administrative penalty shall be determined pursuant to § 6.2.1. The hearing officer may take any or all of the following factors into consideration:
(1) The duration of the violation;
(2) The frequency, recurrence, and number of violations, related or unrelated, by the same responsible person;
(3) The seriousness of the violation;
(4) The good faith efforts of the responsible person to come into compliance; (5) The economic impact of the violation on the community, and
(6) Such other factors as justice may require.
(b) Administrative penalties imposed by the hearing officer shall accrue from the date specified in the compliance order and shall cease to accrue on the date the violation is corrected as determined by the enforcement officer. Administrative penalties assessed by the hearing officer shall be due by the date specified in the administrative order. The Chief Ranger or enforcement officer may suspend the imposition of applicable penalties for any period of time during which:
(1) The responsible person has filed for necessary permits;
(2) Such permits are required to achieve compliance, and
(3) Such permit applications are actively pending before the city, state, or other appropriate governmental agency.
(c) Willful violations. Pursuant to § 6.3(c), if the hearing officer determines, on a preponderance of the evidence, that a violation of this Ordinance giving rise to a compliance order under this chapter was a willful act, the daily administrative penalties shall be deemed to have begun to accrue as of the date of the compliance order.
(d)Failure to correct. If the violation is not corrected as specified in the administrative order, administrative penalties shall continue to accrue on a daily basis until the violation is corrected.
(e) Compliance with administrative order. If the responsible person gives written notice to the enforcement officer that the violation has been corrected and if the enforcement officer finds that compliance has been achieved, the enforcement officer shall deem the date of that final inspection to be the date on which the enforcement
24
officer finds that the violation was corrected.
§ 6.3.6. Administrative costs. In addition to any administrative penalties imposed, the hearing officer shall also assess appropriate administrative costs against the responsible person. Administrative costs may include any and all costs incurred by the Authority in connection with the compliance order and the administrative hearing, including, but not limited to costs of investigation, staffing costs incurred in preparation for the hearing and for the hearing itself, and costs for all re-inspections necessary to enforce the compliance order. Failure to pay administrative costs within the time allowed under this Chapter shall constitute a violation of this Ordinance punishable as a misdemeanor and shall further be subject to collection as otherwise provided for administrative penalties herein.
§ 6.3.7. Failure to pay administrative penalties and costs and failure to comply with administrative order. (a) Administrative penalties and costs assessed by the hearing officer shall be due by the date specified in an administrative order. Failure to pay the assessed administrative penalties and/or administrative costs specified in the administrative order may be enforced as a personal obligation of the responsible person, which shall remain in effect until all of the administrative penalties, administrative costs, and interest are paid in full and shall be collectable by the Authority by all lawful means of collection, including the utilization of third party collections providers. Unpaid administrative penalties and costs may be reported to appropriate credit reporting agencies. In addition to all other means of enforcement, if the violation is in connection with real property, the Authority may place a lien on the real property which shall remain in effect until all the administrative penalties and costs, plus interest, are paid in full, and/or until responsible person achieves full compliance with any and all conditions in the administrative order.
(b) Late payment charges. Late payment charges of ten percent (10%) per month, simple interest on the delinquent amount, shall accrue and are payable. If the delinquent amount has not been paid within sixty (60) calendar days of the date set for payment then a twenty five percent (25%) nonpayment penalty shall be added to the principal amount due, and thereafter interest shall accrue on the delinquent amount plus the nonpayment penalty.
(c) Failure to pay administrative costs within the time allowed under this chapter shall constitute a violation of this code punishable as a misdemeanor and shall further be subject to collection as otherwise provided for administrative penalties herein.
(d) Lien procedure. Upon the responsible person’s failure to pay administrative penalties and costs as ordered by the hearing officer or by the superior court, the Authority may record a judgment lien against responsible person’s real property pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure §§ 674 and 697.310, et seq.
