Violation of the provisions of this chapter or failure to comply with any of its requirements, including violation of conditions and safeguards established in connection with grants of variance or special exceptions, shall constitute a misdemeanor. Any person who violates this chapter or fails to comply with any of its requirements shall, upon conviction thereof, be fined not more than $500 or imprisoned for not more than 30 days, or both, and in addition shall pay all costs and expenses involved in the case. However, no penalty shall exceed the penalty provided by state law for similar offenses. Each day such violation continues shall be considered a separate offense. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the town from taking such other lawful actions as is necessary to prevent or remedy any violation, including notifying the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to initiate a Section 1316 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 action against the structure upon the finding that the violator refuses to bring the violation into compliance with the provisions of this chapter.
