§ 157.50  CIVIL OFFENSE.
   Any violation of any provision of this Chapter 157 is hereby classified as a civil offense pursuant to KRS 65.8801 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 157, and nothing contained herein shall prohibit the enforcement of the provisions of this Chapter 157 by any other means authorized by law.
   (A)   If a citation for a violation of any provision of Chapter 157 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 seventy five dollars ($75.00) for the first offense, one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) for the second offense, and two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) 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 twenty dollars ($20.00) to two hundred dollars ($200.00) for the first offense; from  sixty dollars ($60.00) to six hundred dollars ($600.00) for the second offense; and from one hundred eighty dollars ($180.00) to one thousand eight hundred dollars ($1,800.00) for the third, and thereafter, offense.
   (C)   Each section violated shall be considered a separate fineable offense. If two (2) or more sections are violated, the fines shall be cumulative and be enforceable under the same citation. Each day a violation exists shall be considered a separate offense without issuance of a separate citation.
