This additional penaly will become final May 11th unless the candidate requests a penalty hearing by May 10th.  The letter and notice were sent to the candidate 4/26 by email, regular mail and certified mail.
The total amount due from the candidate is $158,905.00.  Payment in the amount of $154,905 is due no later than July 3, 2006 (60 days from the date the original penalty becomes final).  Payment in the amount of $4,000 is due no later than July 10, 2006.  Interest shall be calculated on the unpaid balance from the date the penalties became final.  At the request of the Auditor, the City Attorney may seek civil penalties and enforcement of this penalty and payment determination in Circuit Court or other appropriate venue.
