Each day that a violation of this code or of any of the applicable state statutes, codes or regulations is allowed to exist shall constitute a separate violation or offense and shall be subject to the penalty as prescribed in § 450-13 of this article.
In the event that any violation of this code shall also be a violation of a New Jersey State law, for which a greater penalty or judgment is provided than that contained in this code, the judge of the Englewood Municipal Court or the trial judge before whom any complaint is brought, based upon such violation, shall in his or her discretion, have the right to impose, in the place and in lieu of any penalty provided for herein, that so provided for in the New Jersey State law which has been so violated.
If any penalty herein provided shall exceed or be greater than that provided by any law of the State of New Jersey for the violation of which such penalty is imposed herein, the maximum penalty for such violation shall be the maximum permitted by such law of the State of New Jersey as may be applicable thereto.
Every act or omission designated as being unlawful in this code or applicable state statutes, codes or regulations is hereby prohibited and every act therein expressly prohibited is hereby designated as being unlawful.
