The Orchard City Town board adopted an ordinance at its Jan. 11 meeting designed "to put teeth" into its building codes by assessing big fines for violations.

The new ordinance, #2016-2, allows the issuance of a stop work order for the failure to obtain a building permit before starting construction.

Violations of stop work orders that have been issued are subject to stiff fines as follows:

• Residential construction, $50 per day for the first seven days; $100 per day for the next seven days; and $500 per day for each calendar day thereafter.

• Commercial construction; $100 per day, then to $500 per day, then to $1,000 per day.
