This penalty is in addition to any other actions that may be taken against the property owner or tenant.
   (d)    In instances where a property owner or tenant fails to remedy their violations in the time period prescribed, the Property Maintenance Enforcement Officer may assess the property owner or tenant a penalty in the amount of $100 per day until the violation is corrected.
