(a) Any person convicted of a violation of any section of this Code shall be fined a minimum of $25.00 and a sum not to exceed $500.00 for any one offense.
(b) Any minor or person designated a juvenile by this state convicted of a violation of any section of this Code shall be fined a minimum of $25.00 and a sum not to exceed $500.00 for any one offense, but may not be confined, except by provisions of the Juvenile Court Act of the State of Illinois.

1-1-21 REVOCATION OF LICENSE. When a person is convicted of a violation of any section of this Code, any license previously issued to him by the Village may be revoked by the court or by the Village Board.

1-1-22 APPLICATION OF PENALTY.
(a) The penalty provided in this chapter shall be applicable to every section of this Code the same as though it were a part of each and every separate section. Any person convicted of a violation of any section of this Code where any duty is prescribed or obligation imposed, or where any act which is of a continuing nature or declared to be unlawful, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor. A separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day such duty or obligation remains unperformed or such act continues, unless otherwise specifically provided in this Code.
(b) In all cases where the same offense is made punishable or is created by different clauses or sections of this Code, the prosecuting officer may elect under which to proceed; but not more than one recovery shall be had against the same person for the same offense; provided that the revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a recovery or penalty so as to bar any other penalty being enforced.
(c) Whenever the doing of any act or the omission to do any act constitutes a breach of
any section or provision of this Code, and there shall be no fine or penalty specifically declared for such breach, the provisions of this chapter shall apply and a separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day during or on which a breach or violation occurs or continues.

1-1-23 LIABILITY OF OFFICERS. No provision of this Code designating the duties of any officer or employee shall be so construed as to make such officer or employee liable for any fine or penalty provided for a failure to perform such duty, unless the intention of the Board of Trustees to impose such fine or penalty on such officer or employee is specifically and clearly expressed in the section creating the duty.
