(B) Any person who continues to conduct a bingo game after any summary suspension thereof under division (A) shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished as provided in § 1.12.010 of this code.
(C) The order issued under division (A) shall also notify the permittee that it shall have five days from the date of such order to request a hearing to determine whether such permit shall be revoked.

The notice shall set forth a summary of the grounds advanced as the basis of the suspension and revoca-tion.
