§ 154.99  PENALTY.
   (A)   Any person violating any provision of this chapter for which no specific penalty is prescribed shall be subject to § 10.99 of this code of ordinances.
   (B)   Failure to comply with an order issued under § 154.01(D) will constitute a violation of that section and a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, the offending party shall be fined not less than $10 nor more than $100. Each day the violation continues after said notice by said officer shall constitute a separate offense.
   (C)   (1)   Each day of non-compliance with the provisions §§ 154.15 through 154.21 constitutes a separate and distinct violation. Judgment of up to $500 per day may be entered for a violation of §§ 154.15 through 154.21. The Town Council may enforce said fine through the appropriate court or the town’s Ordinance Violations Bureau.
      (2)   A home or dwelling placed, located, or sited upon property after May 1999, which is in violation of §§ 154.15 through 154.21, shall be subject to removal from such property. However, the home owner must be given a reasonable opportunity to bring the property into compliance before action for removal can be taken. If action finally is taken by the appropriate authority to bring compliance, the expenses involved may be made a lien against the property.
      (3)   The Town Council may institute a suit in an appropriate court for injunctive relief to cause such violation to be prevented, abated, or removed.
