City fines and fees double, triple for minor and major offenses

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said his plan to raise taxes, fines and fees by $220 million in 2012 includes higher fines for a laundry list of offenses, but he has yet to air that laundry list.

Now, the mayor’s 2012 revenue ordinance makes the details public. It’s a doozy.

If your car is impounded for carrying drugs, driving drunk, soliciting a prostitute or carrying a firearm registered to someone other than the driver, the penalty will double — to $2,000. But, if the violations occur within 500 feet of a park or school, the fine will triple — to $3,000.

If your car is seized for drag racing on Chicago streets, there’s a new, $1,000 fine in addition to the towing and storage fee. For playing a radio too loud, the new fine will be anywhere from $500 to $750.

If the vehicle is snatched for driving with a suspended or revoked license or displaying altered temporary registration permits, the fine would double — to $1,000. Vehicles towed after being used in an unlawful attempt to flee or elude police officers would also double — to $2,000.

Tampering with parking meters or pay-and-display boxes — something motorists have done on occasion to vent their anger at the deal that privatized Chicago parking meters — would carry a fine ranging from $500 to $750.

The mayor isn’t just throwing the book at criminals.

He’s also raising nuisance fines. They include:

†Allowing weeds to grow to a height that exceeds 10 inches — $600-to-$1,200-a-day, up from $500-to-$1,000. ...

"Allowing weeds to grow to a height that exceeds 10 inches — $600-to-$1,200-a-day, up from $500-to-$1,000. "

Could one interpret that grass is NOT a weed, so it is acceptable for grasses to be >10"?

Illegal dumping or allowing trash to accumulate in a way that provides a food supply for rats — $300-to-$600, up from $250-to-$500.

Liberal my ass.

It's fascist.

My city has a fascist republican mayor.

4000 houses get their water shut off every month.

In nine months, the city collected over $2million in "tarriffs" from poor people who got their water shut off.

Fees for unhooking the meter and bringing it back.

(I know because I did a FOIA after mine got cut off)

There is no such thing as sovereign debt. Nationalize monetary policy at the FED, reinstate Greenbacks.

City Hall is more secure than the Pentagon.

That's my guess.

They moved it into a glass tower(no shit) before they hiked everything.
But it's a super-secure glass tower. They scan your driver license when you enter the building.

They must get threats often too, because the security guys always look edgy.

But no I'm writing an expose on this, will try to get it published in one of the local weekly's for some $$$

That's my way of dealing with it.

And I'll submit it as an oped or blog it if I can't get published.
