1-1-8: PENALTY:
In all cases where the same offense is made punishable or is created by different clauses or sections of the official City Code the prosecuting officer may elect under which to proceed; but not more than one recovery shall be had against the same person for the same offense; provided, that the revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a recovery or penalty so as to bar any other penalty being enforced.
Whenever the doing of any act or the omission to do any act constitutes a breach of any section or provision of the City Code and there shall be no fine or penalty specifically declared for such breach, the provisions of the general penalty clause shall apply and a separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day during or on which a breach or violation occurs or continues. (1962 Code)
