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.
