(A)   Any person found responsible for violating any provisions of this code, except as otherwise provided in this code, shall be responsible for a civil code infraction, and upon such finding of responsibility therefor may be punished by a civil sanction not to exceed the amount provided for under state law. Each day that a violation continues shall be a separate offense punishable as herein provided.
      (1)   In this section the term “violation of this code” does not include the failure of a town officer or town employee to perform an official duty unless it is provided that failure to perform the duty is to be punished as provided in this section.
      (2)   In addition to any monetary civil sanction, the Civil Hearing Officer shall order the defendant to abate the civil code infraction, unless it has been abated by the date of a finding of responsibility therefor.
      (3)   The Civil Hearing Officer shall have the authority, within his or her discretion, to suspend the payment of any civil sanction imposed.
      (4)   In any case involving a civil code infraction relating to the occupancy or use of land, any monetary civil sanction imposed pursuant to this section upon a defendant who holds an ownership interest in such land shall be recordable as a lien upon the land and shall run with the land. The town, at its sole option, may record a notice of civil sanction and abatement order with the Mohave County Recorder and thereby cause compliance by any person(s) or entity thereafter acquiring the property. When the property is brought into compliance by the owner or responsible party, a satisfaction of notice of civil sanction and abatement order shall be filed at the request and expense of the owner or responsible party. It shall be the property owner’s responsibility to secure the satisfaction of notice of civil sanction and abatement order from the town.
   (B)   Any violation of or failure or refusal to do or perform any act required by Title VII of this code constitutes a civil traffic offense which shall result in a civil penalty not to exceed the amount provided for under state law. In addition, the court shall levy penalty assessments pursuant to A.R.S. §§ 12-116.01 and 12-116.02. Civil traffic violations are subject to the provisions of A.R.S. §§ 28-1592 et seq., as amended.
