Any person, partnership or corporation who or which has violated or permitted the violation of the provisions of this zoning ordinance shall, upon being found liable therefor in a civil enforcement proceeding commenced by the city, pay a judgment of not more than $500 plus all court costs, including attorney fees incurred by a municipality as a result thereof. If the defendant neither pays nor timely appeals the judgment, the city may enforce the said judgment pursuant to the applicable rules of civil procedure. Each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate violation, unless the district justice determining that there has been a violation further determines that there was a good faith basis for the person, partnership or corporation violating the ordinance to have believed that there was no such violation, in which event there shall be deemed to have been only one such violation until the fifth day following the date of the determination of a violation by the District Justice and thereafter each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate violation. All judgments, costs and reasonable attorney fee collected for the violation of this chapter shall be paid to the city.
