§ 112.99  PENALTY.
   (A)   A violation of § 110.03 constitutes a misdemeanor punishable as provided in G.S. § 14-4. Payment of a fine imposed in criminal proceedings pursuant to this section does not relieve a person of his or her liability for taxes imposed under this chapter.
   (B)   A violation of §§ 110.03 or 112.02 shall subject the offender to a civil penalty of $10. If the offender does not pay the penalty within 10 days after he or she has been cited for a violation, the town may attempt to recover the penalty by filing a civil action in the nature of debt. Payment of this civil penalty does not relieve a person of his or her liability for taxes imposed under this chapter.
   (C)   The town may seek appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent or re-dress violations of this chapter.
   (D)   Each day that a violation of §§ 110.03 or 112.02 exists after the person has been notified of the violation shall constitute a separate and distinct offense.
   (E)   This chapter may be enforced by any 1, all or a combination of the remedies authorized and prescribed by this section.
