The village board of any village or the town board of any town, as the case may be, in which a residential or residential and recreational area has been established pursuant to this article, in which the use of buildings, structures and land for any industrial or commercial purpose is prohibited, restricted, regulated or controlled, or in which the use of all buildings, structures and land is limited to use for one or two family residential purposes, or to use for one or two family residential and non-profit recreational purposes may provide by such ordinance or local law for the enforcement thereof.

In the event that any building, structure or land in any residential or residential and recreational area is used in violation of any ordinance or local law applying to such area, the board, in addition to other remedies, may institute or authorize an official, officer, employee or agent of the village or town, as the case may be, to institute any appropriate action or proceeding to prevent such unlawful use, to restrain, correct or abate such violation or to prevent or abate any illegal act, conduct, business or use in, on or about such premises. All issues in any action or proceeding for any of the purposes herein stated shall have preference over all other civil actions and proceedings.
