(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. Upon due investigation, the Community Development Department may determine that a violation of the minimum standards of this chapter exists. The Community Development Department shall notify the owner in writing of such violation.
(1) If such owner fails after ten days notice to correct the violation:
(a) The county shall 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 ordinance;
(b) Any person who violates this chapter shall upon conviction thereof be fined not less than $75 nor more than $750 or as provided for by the violation of the ordinances of the city;
(c) A separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues; and
(d) The county shall record a notice of violation on the title of the property.
(2) The Community Development Department 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.
(B) Nothing herein shall prevent the city from taking such other lawful action to prevent or remedy any violations. All costs connected therewith shall accrue to the person or persons responsible.
