Violation of any provision or requirement of this chapter or violation of any statement, plan, application, permit or certificate approved under the provisions of this chapter shall be considered an offense punishable as provided in § 20-2006, Subdivision 1-a, of the Village Law.
The owner, general agent or contractor of a building, premises or part thereof where such a violation has been committed or does exist shall be guilty of such an offense.
Any agent, contractor, architect, builder, corporation or other person who commits, takes part or assists in such violation shall also be guilty of such an offense.
Each and every week that any such violation continues after notification that such violation exists shall constitute a separate offense. Such notice shall be written by the Building Inspector and shall be served by mail or by personal service.
The imposition of penalties herein prescribed shall not preclude the Village or any person from instituting appropriate legal action or proceeding to prevent an unlawful erection, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, conversion, maintenance or use, or to restrain, correct or abate a violation, or to prevent the illegal occupancy of a building, land or premises.
