Further, the city may avail itself of any other legal or equitable remedy available to it in the enforcement of any provision of this chapter or any provision of any resolution enacted pursuant to this chapter.
   (E)   The city may elect to take any or all of the above remedies concurrently, and the pursuit of one does not preclude the pursuit of another.
