Recycling money?

I always wonder what the real impact of a public body fining another public body is. Isn't this just recycling taxpayer money? If the council has to fork this out of their annual budgets, doesn't this just punish those that pay local council tax since this gets passed onto them or cut out of their slice of the pie? maybe I've misunderstood the logic here...
