CHAPTER 24. TRIP REDUCTION.
Article VI. Enforcement.
Sec. 24-6-10. Enforcement.
(a) Failure to Achieve Chapter Objective. If an employer subject to the
trip reduction requirements of this chapter is unable to show that substantial
progress is being made to meet the objectives of this chapter by the time of the
required second annual report, or annual report thereafter, the city trip
reduction coordinator may require a revised trip reduction plan. The trip
reduction coordinator may make such a requirement by disapproving the existing
trip reduction plan and requiring a revised plan be prepared and submitted
within thirty days of notification of plan disapproval.
(b) Failure to
Provide Surveys, Annual Reports, or Trip Reduction Plans. Any employee who fails
to provide the survey data, annual report, or trip reduction plan as required by
this chapter, after thirty days from receipt of notice to remedy the failure,
shall be guilty of an infraction.
(1) Penalties. Every infraction violation
of this chapter is punishable, upon conviction thereof, by (a) a fine not
exceeding one hundred dollars for the first violation; (b) a fine not exceeding
two hundred dollars for a second violation of the same provision within one
year; (c) a fine not exceeding five hundred dollars for each additional
violation of the same provision within one year.
Acts, omissions or conditions of violation of this chapter which continue,
exist, or occupy more than one day constitute separate violations and offenses
on each such day.
(c) Failure to Implement a Trip Reduction Plan. Any
employer who fails to implement a term or condition of their approved trip
reduction plan shall have thirty days, after notice of such failure, to correct
the failure, or satisfactorily explain to the city council why compliance is not
possible or that substantial progress is being made toward meeting the
objectives of this chapter. If the employer is not excused from compliance by
the city council, then the city council may take one of the following
(1) Time Extension. The city council may grant an extension of time
for compliance solely on the evidence that time is the only condition needed to
accomplish the requirements.
(2) Penalties. The city council may find that
an extension is not warranted, find a violation of this chapter, and order
compliance within thirty days. Every violation is an infraction punishable as in
subsection (b) above. (Ord. No. 1218, § 3 (part).)
