§ 151.99 PENALTY.
   (A)   Failure to obtain a permit for development in the floodplain or failure to comply with the conditions of a permit or a variance shall be deemed to be a violation of this chapter.
   (B)   Upon due investigation, the Village Administrator may determine that a violation of the minimum standards of this chapter exists. The Village Administrator shall notify the property owner in writing of such violation.
      (1)   If such owner fails after ten days of notice to correct the violation:
         (a)   The Village Administrator may make application to the circuit court for an injunction
requiring conformance with this chapter or make such other order as the court deems necessary to secure compliance with the chapter.
         (b)   Any person who violates this chapter shall upon conviction thereof be fined not less than $50 nor more than $500 for each offense; and
         (c)   A separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues.
         (d)   The Village Administrator may record a notice of violation on the title to the property.
         (e)   The Village Administrator may implement proceedings to revoke any site development permit, zoning use permit, or building permit for the site.
      (2)   The Village Administrator shall inform the owner that any such violation is considered a willful act to increase flood damages and therefore may cause coverage by a standard flood insurance policy to be suspended.
      (3)   Nothing herein shall prevent the village from taking such other lawful action to prevent or remedy any violations. All costs connected therewith shall accrue to the person or persons responsible.
      (4)   The Village Administrator is authorized to issue an order requiring the suspension of any development in violation of this chapter. The stop work order shall be in writing, indicate the reason for the issuance, and shall order the action, if necessary, to resolve the circumstances requiring the stop work order. The stop work order constitutes a suspension of the floodplain development permit.
      (5)   No site development permit, zoning use permit, or building permit shall be permanently suspended or revoked until a hearing is held by the Board of Appeals.
         (a)   Written notice of such hearing shall be served on the permittee and shall state the following:
            1.   The grounds for the complaint, reasons for suspension or revocation; and
            2.   The time and place of the hearing.
         (b)   At such hearing the permittee shall be given an opportunity to present evidence on his or her behalf.
      (c)   At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board of Appeals shall determine whether the permit shall be suspended or revoked.
