[Ord. No. 861 § BH-11.1]
In addition to any other remedy available by law, whenever any person shall violate any provision of this chapter, or the State Sanitary Code, or any other state law or regulation which the Board may enforce, the Board may direct an Order to the person to discontinue or abate the violation within a reasonable time fixed by the Board as stated in the Order. The Order shall be in writing and shall be served personally or by certified mail, and the person receiving the Order shall have the right to be heard in person or by Attorney. The hearing will not waive the right of the Board to seek penalties for violations or delay the Registered Environmental Health Specialist in requiring immediate compliance.
[Ord. No. 861 § BH-11.2]
Unless another penalty is specifically provided by law:
Any person violating any of the provisions of any chapter adopted by the Board of Health, or who shall fail to comply therewith or with any of the requirements thereof, shall upon conviction thereof pay a penalty of not less than $5 and not more than $500 for each offense. Complaint shall be made in the Municipal Court of the Borough or before such other judicial officer having authority under the laws of the State of New Jersey. In addition, the Court shall have the power to impose other penalties provided by N.J.S.A. 26:3-77 and N.J.S.A. 26:3-78.
Except as otherwise provided, each and every day in which a violation of any provision of any chapter adopted by the Board of Health exists shall constitute a separate violation.
All penalties imposed under this chapter may be recovered by the Board in accordance with the Penalty Enforcement Law, N.J.S.A. 2A:58-1 et seq. as amended and supplemented and, upon collection, shall be paid to the Chief Financial Officer and deposited into the general treasury of the Borough.
