§ 157.99 PENALTY.
   (A)   If such owner fails after ten days notice to correct the violation:
      (1)   The city may make application to the Circuit Court for an injunction requiring conformance with this chapter or make such other order as the Court;
      (2)   Any person who violates this Ordinance shall, upon conviction thereof, be fined not less than $50 or more than $1,000 for each offense;
      (3)   A separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues; and
      (4)   The city shall record a notice of violation on the title to the property.
   (B)   The Director of Building and Housing 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.
      (1)   The Director of Building and Housing is authorized to issue an order requiring the suspension of the subject development. The stop-work order shall be in writing, shall 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 permit.
      (2)   (a)   No site development permit shall be permanently suspended or revoked until a hearing is held by the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals of the city. Written notice of such hearing shall be served on the permittee and shall state:
            1.   The grounds for compliant or 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. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals of the city shall determine whether the permit shall be suspended or revoked.
   (C)   Nothing herein shall prevent the city from talcing such other lawful action to prevent or remedy any violations. All costs connected therewith shall accrue to the person or persons responsible.
