§ 151.99  PENALTIES AND FEES.
   (A)   Civil citations. If the violation continues after the deadline to correct a violation established after the violation hearing by the order requiring removal or correction of a violation, and no appeal has been filed with the office of the inspector, then the inspector may issue a civil citation with a fine in an initial amount of $100 against the violator. Thereafter, upon issuing a second civil citation that each day the violation continues is an additional separate and distinct offense and that additional citations with additional fines of $100 shall apply each day the violation continues. Any unpaid citations and delinquency charges shall be cumulative and shall be recovered in a civil action in the nature of debt as well as any attorney fees incurred by the city incident thereto.
   (B)   Criminal citations. If the violation continues after the deadline to correct a violation established after the violation hearing by the order requiring removal or correction of a violation, and no appeal has been filed with the office of the inspector, then the Police may issue a criminal citation with a fine of up to $500 against the violator.
   (C)   Multiple notices not required. A hearing is not required for issuance of consequent civil citations with fines after the issuance of the first citation. This ordinance may be enforced by the simultaneous issuance of both civil citation(s) and a criminal citation, in addition to any other remedies provided in this chapter. See G.S. §§ 160A-175 and 160A-193.
