1. For each violation of the provisions of this Part, the owner, agent, lessee, or contractor or any other person who commits, takes part in, or assists in any such violation shall be liable upon conviction thereof in a summary proceeding to pay a fine of not less than two hundred dollars ($200.00) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) for each offense, together with the costs of prosecution. Each day or portion thereof in which a violation exists shall be considered a separate violation of this Part, and each Section of this Part which is violated shall be considered a separate violation.

2. The Township may also institute suits to restrain, prevent, or abate a violation of this Part in equity or at law. Such proceedings in equity or at law may be initiated before any court of competent jurisdiction. In cases of emergency where, in the opinion of the court, the circumstances of the case require immediate abatement of the unlawful conduct, the court may, in its decree, fix a reasonable time during which the person responsible for the unlawful conduct shall correct or abate the same. The expense of such proceedings shall be recoverable from the violator in such manner as may now or hereafter be provided by law. (Ord. 181, 10/11/2006, §804)
