    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to violations of county ordinances;
    3         amending s. 125.69, F.S.; authorizing a county to
    4         specify by ordinance penalties for a violation of

    8  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   10         Section 1. Subsection (1) of section 125.69, Florida
   11  Statutes, is amended to read:
   12         125.69 Penalties; enforcement by code inspectors.—
   13         (1) Violations of county ordinances shall be prosecuted in
   14  the same manner as misdemeanors are prosecuted. Such violations
   15  shall be prosecuted in the name of the state in a court having
   16  jurisdiction of misdemeanors by the prosecuting attorney thereof
   17  and upon conviction shall be punished by a fine not to exceed
   18  $500 or by imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed 60 days
   19  or by both such fine and imprisonment. However, a county may
   20  specify, by ordinance, a violation of a county ordinance which
   21  is punishable by a fine in an amount exceeding $500, but not
   22  exceeding $2,000 a day, if the county must have authority to
   23  punish a violation of that ordinance by a fine in an amount
   24  greater than $500 in order for the county to carry out a
   25  federally mandated program. A county may also specify, by
   26  ordinance, that a violation of any provision of a county
   27  ordinance imposing standards of conduct and disclosure
   28  requirements as provided in s. 112.326 is punishable by a fine
   29  not to exceed $1,000 or a term of imprisonment in the county
   30  jail not to exceed 1 year.
   31         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
