Any person violating the provisions of this Section shall be guilty of an infraction. Every violation determined to be an infraction is punishable by (1) a fine not exceeding $100 for a first violation; (2) a fine not exceeding $200 for a second violation within one year; (3) a fine not exceeding $500 and revocation of the permittee’s license issued pursuant to Section 183-2 of this Article for a third violation within one year.
In addition, fines may be imposed by the Department of Public Works for investigation of display stands being maintained without or in violation of a valid permit. The Director of Public Works shall establish a schedule of such fees. Payment of the fees shall be directly to the Department of Public Works.
The person responsible for payment of the fee may appeal the amount of the investigation fee to the Board of Permit Appeals, subject to its filing fees and rules.
The nonpayment of such fee or fine, or the continued existence of a condition in violation of this Section, shall be grounds for the Director of Public Works to deny a permit for display stands to the responsible owner or applicant until such penalty has been paid and the condition corrected.
