Any violation of any provision of this chapter is hereby classified as a civil offense pursuant to KRS 65.8808 and subchapter §§ 65.60 et seq., and such classification is intended, and shall be construed, to provide an additional or supplemental means of obtaining compliance with the provisions of this chapter, and nothing contained herein, or in §§ 65.60 et seq. shall prohibit the enforcement of the provisions of this chapter by any other means authorized by law, specifically, without limitation, the provisions of §§ 116.10, and/or 116.99.
(A) If a citation for a violation of any provision of this chapter is not contested by the person charged with the violation and the violation is timely remedied, the civil fine to be imposed for each offense shall be $50 for the first offense, $90 for the second offense, and $210 for the third, and thereafter, offense.
(B) If a citation is contested and a hearing before the Code Enforcement Board is required, or if the violation is not remedied, the maximum civil fine which may be imposed at the discretion of the Board shall be from $20 to $200 for the first offense; from $60 to $600 for the second offense; and from $180 to $1,800 for the third, and thereafter, offense.
