Upon receipt of an administrative citation, the responsible person shall pay the amount of the fine to the county within 15 days of the date of service of the citation. All fines assessed shall be payable to the department that issued the citation. Payment of the fine shall not excuse or discharge the failure to correct the violation nor shall it bar further enforcement action by the county. If the responsible person fails to correct the violation, subsequent administrative citations may be issued for maintaining, continuing or repeating the same violation. The amount of the fine for subsequent violations shall increase at a rate specified in this chapter.
