Editor's Note: This local law provided that it shall take effect on January 2, 2010, subject to acceptance and filing by the Secretary of State.
Whenever in the Code any act is prohibited, or the doing of any act is required, or the failure to do any act is declared to be unlawful, and where no specific penalty is provided, any person committing such offense shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a violation pursuant to the Penal Law of the State of New York, punishable in the case of natural persons by a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment, and in the case of a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, association or similar entity other than a natural person, by a fine not exceeding $500. The continuance of an offense for each day (24 hours) thereafter shall be deemed a separate and distinct violation.
Obedience to the provisions hereinafter set forth may be enforced by prosecution of the offender as provided in § 1-9, by civil action for a penalty, by civil remedy at law or in equity by way of injunction or otherwise to abate or prevent a violation of the provisions of this Code. Neither a judgment in nor the pendency of a criminal prosecution for an alleged violation of the provisions of this Code, nor a judgment in nor the pendency of a civil action at law or in equity, shall be a bar to the other form of proceeding. The imposition of a penalty for a violation of this Code shall not excuse the violation or permit it to continue, and the remedies herein provided for penalties, and civil action to enjoin or abate a violation, shall be cumulative.
