Question 5 – unpaid fines are passed to Payments Section within Council who pursue payment from the offender if necessary by civil process.

Question 6 – all FPN’s are issued by the Community Wardens, Community Safety Team, Environmental Health, Development Services.

Question 7 – there are no internal targets for the issue of FPNs.

Question 8 – employment details are not collected in the issue of a FPN, but none of the above have been knowingly issued to Council employees.

Question 9 – as per Q8 but given the low number of FPN and the low number of elected members I am able to advise that no FPNs were so issued.

Question 10 – Community Wardens received instruction in the issue of FPNs.  There is no material available to release.
