Consider/Act on updating maximum fines
Right now the maximum fine a patron can accrue on a single item is the total cost of the item. We are the only library that does that – other libraries’ maximum fine per item is $5 or $10. B. Bleck proposed making $5 the maximum fine per item, excluding hotspots.
This is a separate issue from when patrons lose an item – in that situation, we are charging the replacement cost, which would remain the cover price of the item.
H. Schick moved to a $5 maximum fine per item. M. Krahn seconded. M. Krahn moved to keep maximum overdue fine for WiFi hotspot remain unchanged. H. Schick seconded.
