(1) In addition to, and not in lieu of any other enforcement mechanism authorized by this land use code, upon determination by the city manager that a person has violated a provision of this land use code, the city manager may impose an administrative civil penalty, as provided in EC Chapter 2, upon the responsible person. For purposes of this section, “responsible person” includes the violator and, if the violator is not the owner of the building or property at which the violation occurs, the owner.
(2) In addition to enforcement mechanisms authorized elsewhere in this code, failure to pay an administrative penalty imposed pursuant to subsection (1) of this section shall be grounds for the city manager to:
(a) Withhold issuance of any requested permits or licenses other than those issued pursuant to EC Chapter 8; or
(b) Issue a stop work order or stop use order.
