Chicago Business Owners Can Now Pre-Pay Some Fines

The city of Chicago announced that it will allow business owners to pre-pay fines for certain municipal violations, instead of requiring them to hire lawyers and go through the city’s administrative hearing process. The SBAC and a robust coalition worked with the city to develop this pilot program. This initiative is a big win for Chicago businesses, and we look forward to continuing the effort expand the number of violations that can be resolved without an administrative hearing.
