Upon notice from the Building Code Administrator that work on any building or structure or any electrical, plumbing, mechanical or fire prevention work is being prosecuted contrary to the provisions of the Codes adopted in this chapter or in any unsafe and dangerous manner, or in violation of village ordinances prohibiting open burning of construction waste, such work shall be immediately stopped. The stop work order shall be in writing, shall be given to the owner of the property involved, or to the owner's agent, or to the person doing the work; it shall state the conditions under which work will be permitted to resume. If the stop work order is as a result of open burning of construction waste, such conditions shall include provisions satisfactory to the Building Code Administrator for proper future disposal of construction waste. Any person who shall continue any work in or about the structure after having been served with a stop work order, except such work as that person is directed to perform to remove a violation or unsafe condition, shall be liable to a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $500. A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during on or which the violation occurs or continues. In addition to this penalty, the village may utilize other statutory or common law remedies, including but not limited to, injunctive, preliminary injunctive and temporary restraining order relief, deemed appropriate by a court of law.
