A.   Penalty Imposed: A violation of a provision of this chapter, or of an order issued under authority of this chapter, is punishable by a fine not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500.00). Each day's violation of a provision of this chapter constitutes a separate offense.
   B.   Duty To Abate: The abatement of a nuisance is not a penalty for violating this chapter, but is an additional remedy. The imposition of a penalty does not relieve a person of the duty to abate the nuisance. However, abatement of a nuisance within ten (10) days of the date of notice to abate, or if a written protest has been filed, then abatement within ten (10) days of the chief of police's determination that a nuisance exists, will relieve the person responsible from the imposition of a fine under subsection A of this section.
