Each violation shall constitute a separate offense and each day that a violation continues, after notice of the violation is given to the responsible party, shall constitute a separate offense.

If a recipient fails or refuses to abate a violation within 30 days after the imposition of a fine as provided in division (A) of this section, such continued failure or refusal shall also be considered a second or subsequent violation and be subject to the general enforcement provisions established § 1-1-2-3 of this code.
