(A) Misdemeanor penalty. Whenever any act or omission constitutes a crime not constituting a felony or infraction and no specific penalty is stated in the code, such crime shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $300 or by imprisonment for not more than six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment for any single violation.
(B) Infractions. Whenever any person commits an infraction and no specific penalty is provided for such act, such person shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100 and no imprisonment may be imposed.
(C) Applicability of penalty. The penalties provided in this section shall be applied as though they were a part of every separate section of the code.
(D) Multiple violations. Whenever the same person violates the same section of the code on two or more days, then each violation on each day shall be deemed a separate offense and shall be separately punishable for each such offense.
(E) Prosecutorial discretion. Whenever the same offense, act or omission is punishable under different sections of the code, the city may elect under which section to proceed; but no more than one sentence of imprisonment may be imposed against the same person for the same offense; provided that, revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a penalty so as to bar imposition of a penalty under the code.
(F) Penalty against officers. The penalty provisions of this section shall not apply to any section of the code which designates the duties of any officer or employee of the city unless the intention to impose a fine or penalty is specifically and clearly expressed in the section creating the duty.
