1.20.010 Penalty for violations.

Any person violating any of the provisions or failing to comply with any of the mandatory requirements of the ordinances of the city shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Except in cases where a different punishment is prescribed by any ordinance of the city, any person convicted of a misdemeanor under the ordinances of the city shall be punished by a fine of not more than five thousand dollars or by imprisonment not to exceed one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Provided, however, that wherever there is a lesser maximum penalty prescribed for violation of an analogous provision of state law then such lesser maximum penalty shall apply and provided further, that wherever a minimum mandatory penalty is provided for violation for an analogous provision of state law then such a minimum mandatory penalty shall apply.

Each such person shall be guilty of a separate offense for each and every day during any portion of which any violation of any provision of the ordinances of the city is committed, continued or permitted by any such person, and he shall be punished accordingly. (Ord. 1116 § 1, 1991)
