"Please refrain from allowing your child to create excessive noise immediately and into the future," was the exact wording of the notice. "Continued breaches of the by-laws may result in the matter being taken further and a fine of $550 being imposed by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal." In American dollars, the potential fine comes out to about $410.
