JUPITER â An overgrown lawn could cost a homeowner $1,000 a day. A plan to quadruple the penalty from the current maximum of $250 per day for a first violation is scheduled for consideration at Tuesday night's town council meeting. A repeat violation by the same person would be boosted to $5,000 a day maximum from $500 per day. If the code enforcement board finds that the violation is irreversible â the unapproved removal of an historic tree, for example â the violator would face a maximum fine of $15,000. The current maximum penalty is $5,000. http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/64319.html How are they going to collect from the banks that own the vacant houses? The banks are NOT going to pay these fines, period.
