Existing law places no limits on the amount of revenue a municipality may derive from municipal traffic ordinance violations or non-moving traffic violations
This bill would require each municipality to ensure any audit of the finances of the municipality includes an accounting of the percentage of annual operating revenue derived from costs, fees, and fines of municipal court relating to municipal traffic ordinance violations or non-moving traffic ordinance violations, and would remit any amount above 30 percent of its operating revenue to the Department of Finance for remittance to the boards of education in the county where the municipality is located
This bill would also require the Department of Examiners of Public Accounts to include the same accounting in any municipal audit performed by the department
Relating to municipalities; to require municipalities deriving a certain percentage of operating revenue from penalties from certain municipal traffic ordinance violations to remit amounts over that percentage to the state for remittance to the boards of education of the county where the municipality is located.
