§ 153.999 PENALTY.
   (A)   Any person, partnership or corporation who or which has violated the provisions of this chapter, upon conviction thereof in an action brought before a magisterial district judge in the manner provided for the enforcement of summary offenses under the Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure, 234 Pa. Code §§ 100 et seq., shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $1,000 plus costs and reasonable attorney fees incurred by the borough in the enforcement proceeding and, in default of payment of said fine and costs, to a term of imprisonment not to exceed 90 days. Each day that a violation of this chapter continues or each section of this chapter which shall be found to have been violated shall constitute a separate offense. No judgment shall commence or be imposed, levied or payable until the date of the determination of a violation by the magisterial district judge. If the defendant neither pays nor timely appeals the judgment, the borough may enforce the judgment pursuant to a separate violation, unless the magisterial district judge, determining that there has been a violation, further determines that there was a good faith basis for the person, partnership or corporation violating this chapter to have believed that there was no such violation, in which event there shall be deemed to have been only one such violation until the fifth day following the date of the determination of a violation by the magisterial district judge and thereafter each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate violation.
   (B)   The court of common pleas, upon petition, may grant an order of stay upon cause shown, tolling the per diem judgment pending a final adjudication of the violation and judgment.
   (C)   Nothing contained in this section shall be construed or interpreted to grant to any person or entity other than the borough the right to commence any action for enforcement pursuant to this section.
   (D)   Magisterial district judges shall have initial jurisdiction in proceedings brought under this section.
   (E)   In addition, the borough, through its Solicitor, may institute injunctive, mandamus or any other appropriate action or proceeding at law or in equity for the enforcement of this chapter. Any court of competent jurisdiction shall have the right to issue restraining orders, temporary or permanent injunctions, mandamus or other appropriate forms of remedy or relief.
