Whoever violates any clause or section of this chapter shall be fined as provided in section 1-4-1 of this code, and if any person or corporation shall continue a nuisance after being fined for the same, a new cause of action shall immediately accrue against such person or corporation, subjecting the offender to a like penalty as aforesaid, and so on. After the rendition of each fine, the continuance of such nuisance shall be deemed a new cause of action, subjecting the offender to like penalty as aforesaid; provided, that the offender shall in every case under this chapter be notified by some executive officer of the village to remove or abate any such nuisance, and be allowed a reasonable time to be fixed by such officer in such notice, according to the nature of such nuisance, to so remove or abate the same, and upon so doing, within the time fixed by such officer, the offender shall not be subject to the fine aforesaid, unless the commission of the nuisance was wilful or resulted in actual damage to the person or property of some person or corporation.
