   § 12-14-11  Violations of parking

regulations in the town of Barrington. –

The town of Barrington is authorized and empowered to fix any fines that the

Barrington town council may, from time to time, establish for violation of any

provision of the ordinances relating to parking. The town council may designate

the police department for the purpose of collecting fines as provided in this

section, when the offender desires to dispose of the charge without personal

appearance in court, within seven (7) days from notification. The police

department is authorized to receive the fines, directly or by mail, from any

person charged with violation of any provision of the ordinances of the town

relating to traffic, and the money so received and collected shall be turned

over by the police to the town treasurer of Barrington. All charges, records,

and payments shall be immediately entered by the police in their books

containing records of violations, and their disposition, and money received as

fines shall be audited not less than once every three (3) months by the town

treasurer of the town. In the event the offender refuses or neglects to dispose

of the charges within seven (7) days, then he or she shall be brought before

the district court of the state of Rhode Island, first division, for trial and

for any disposition of the case that the court may decide to be proper, in

which case the provisions of § 12-14-1, relating to fines and their

disposition, shall prevail.
