Codes Department unveils new ticket for violations


The Columbia Borough Codes Department has unveiled a new ticket with updated fee schedule. As shown above, most violations are set at $25.

If a resident receives a ticket, he/she can appeal it in writing to the borough manager, accompanied by a $100 check payable to the borough for associated administrative costs.

If no appeal is made and the ticket is not paid within 30 days of the ticket date, the violation will become a citation/summons for “Failure to Pay," in which case, the district justice will charge the initial ticket fee and all associated court costs.

The ticket also has provisions for no-compliant/unregistered rentals and for a landlord's failure to report a change of occupancy.

  1. I looked into a few dictionaries and cannot find the word "STORAGEE" in any of them.

    1. Be careful of pointing out errors in anything that is a product of Columbia, boro, schools etc.

  2. I think it's ridiculous that it costs $100 to fight a $25 ticket but you can't get your $100 back if you win.

  4. Don't be fooled. They can't force you to pay the $100 to have due process if you don't have it. The courts can't do it and neither can the borough.

  5. Then I guess you'll just have to be a good citizen and start following the rules. Look it up in the dictionary. Ordinance = Law.

    1. Some follow the rules and some don't have to. In Columbia, Codes=Unfair.
