City Manager Romualdo Medina said the fine would be issued against anyone not wearing all safety gear named in the ordinance.
He said if a youth is wearing a helmet but not the elbow and knee pads that youth could be charged the fine.
Medina said the goal is not to issue fines but reinforce the idea that safety is a must for those using the skate park.
In other action, the council approved funding to start a library expansion project that will nearly double the size of the facility by adding more than 1,000 square feet.
The project will cost about $150,000, with the county providing 50 percent of the cost. The city had already set aside about $46,000 for its share of the cost and this week approved another $30,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding for the project.
Medina said the library construction should be done during the next fiscal year, which starts July 1.
The council also approved spending $20,000 in CDBG funds to build five park shelters in Radamacher Park.
Medina said the project will cost $35,000, with the remaining $15,000 coming from donations. He said the donations will be provided by the Latin American Club, the Calipatria Lions Club and Nate Mata Memorial Fund.
