§ 110.47  ENFORCEMENT OF CHAPTER.
   (A)   A violation of §§ 110.17 or 110.26(D) constitutes a misdemeanor punishable as provided in G.S. § 14-4. Payment of a fine imposed in criminal proceedings pursuant to this chapter does not relieve a person of his or her liability for taxes imposed under this chapter.
   (B)   A violation of § 110.28 shall subject the offender to a civil penalty as provided for in § 10.99. A violation of § 110.28 shall subject the offender to a civil penalty of $10. If the offender does not pay the penalty within ten days after he or she has been cited for a violation, the city may attempt to recover the penalty by filing a civil action in the nature of debt. Payment of this civil penalty does not relieve a person of his liability for taxes imposed under this chapter.
   (C)   The city may seek appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent or redress violations of this chapter.
   (D)   Each day that a violation of §§ 110.17 or 110.28 exists after the person has been notified of the violation shall constitute a separate and distinct offense.
   (E)   This chapter may be enforced by any one, all, or a combination of the remedies authorized and prescribed by this chapter.
