Current Bill Summary


HCS/SB 1002 - Currently, property owners violating certain zoning regulations in municipalities located in Jackson County shall be fined at least $10 but not more $500, or imprisoned for ten days, for each day of such violation. For second or subsequent offenses involving the same violation at the same place, the punishment shall be a fine of not less than $250 but not more than $1,000, or imprisonment for ten days, for each day of the violation. In all other municipalities, property owners shall be fined at least $10 but not more than $100 for each day of the violation, unless the offense was committed wilfully, in which case, the penalty shall be a fine of not less than $100 but not more than $250, or imprisonment for ten days, for each day of such violation.

Under this act, a property owner in any city with more than 300,000 inhabitants may be fined at least $10 but not more $500, or imprisoned for ten days, for each day of such violation. For second or subsequent offenses involving the same violation at the same place, the punishment shall be a fine of not less than $250 but not more than $1,000, or imprisonment for ten days, for each day of the violation.

In all other municipalities, property owners shall be fined not less than $10 but not more than $250, or imprisoned for ten days, for each day of the violation. For second or subsequent offenses involving the same violation at the same place, the punishment shall be a fine of not less than $100 but not more than $500, or imprisonment for ten days, for each day of the violation.

This act repeals the other version of Section 89.120, RSMo, which was doubly-enacted.

This act is identical to HB 1849 (2008).
