1. Any court or magistrate before whom there may be pending any proceeding for a violation of NRS 202.470 shall, in addition to any fine or other punishment which it may impose for such a violation, order:
(a) The defendant to abate the nuisance. The abatement must begin within 3 days after the court or magistrate enters the order to abate and must be completed within the time period specified by the court or magistrate. The responsible agency shall supervise the abatement and report to the court or magistrate regarding whether the abatement was successfully completed within the time period specified by the court or magistrate.
(b) The defendant to pay a civil penalty of not less than $500 but not more than $5,000. If ordered by the court or magistrate, the penalty may be paid in installments. The responsible agency may attempt to collect a civil penalty or installment that is in default in any manner provided by law for the enforcement of a judgment.
2. If a defendant is ordered to abate a nuisance pursuant to subsection 1 and fails to abate the nuisance within the time period specified by the court or magistrate, the responsible agency may assume responsibility and abate the nuisance, at the expense of the defendant. If the responsible agency abates the nuisance, the responsible party shall report to the court or magistrate upon the successful completion of the abatement.
3. Any civil penalty collected pursuant to subsection 1 must be deposited with the treasurer of the responsible agency in an account used solely to pay costs associated with any abatement ordered by a court or magistrate.
4. As used in this section, “responsible agency” means an agency, officer, bureau, board, commission, department, division or any other unit of government of the State or a local government that is designated by a court or magistrate as the party responsible for carrying out any action pursuant to this section.
