Any person or business entity violating any provision of this chapter shall be fined in the sum of not less than $10 and not more than $500, or may be sentenced to imprisonment for not exceeding 30 days, or both. Each act of violation and each day upon which a violation occurs constitutes a separate punishable offense. Any person, business or other entity refusing or failing to pay any charge assessed pursuant to the provisions of this chapter shall be guilty of a violation and punishable as set out in this section. In addition, if it is judicially determined that any person, business or other entity has refused or failed to pay any charge assessed pursuant to the provisions of this chapter for a period of more than 60 consecutive days, the city shall terminate the city water and other services to the property for which the charge was made. The person, business or other entity with legal title to the property is responsible for the payment of charges provided for in this chapter. The fact that charges incurred were for services provided to a tenant, agent, or other person using the title holder’s property, shall not be grounds for staying the termination of city services provided for in this section.
