1. Whenever the Health Official or Municipal Building Inspector determines violations of pertinent regulations are found to exist, the licensee, permittee or the person(s) managing, or in charge of, the park shall be notified of such alleged violations. Such notice shall:
a. Be in writing;
b. Include a statement of the reasons for its issuance;
c. Contain an outline of remedial action, which, if taken, will effect compliance with provisions of this chapter and other pertinent regulations;
d. Allow a reasonable time, not to exceed 90 days, for the performance of any act it requires; and
e. Be served upon the owner, an agent, operator or the person in charge of the park, as the case may require; provided, that, such notice or order shall be deemed as properly served upon said owner or agent when a copy thereof has been sent by certified mail to the last known address.
2. Any person affected by any notice issued under this chapter or resulting regulations, may request and shall be granted a hearing on the matter before the City Council, acting as a Board of Appeals, or the Zoning Board of Adjustment (if the city has adopted a zoning ordinance); provided, that, such person shall file with the Municipal Building Inspector a written request for such hearing, setting forth briefly the grounds for such request, within ten days after the day notice was served. The filing of such request shall stay the notice of suspension of permits, except in cases of orders issued under subsection 5. below. The hearing shall be held at the next meeting for which the agenda has not been completed, or at a later meeting if so requested by the petitioner, should the Municipal Building Inspector determine that sufficient cause for such delay exists.
3. After such hearing, the Health Official or Municipal Building Inspector shall compile the findings of the City Council or the Zoning Board of Adjustment (if the city has adopted a zoning ordinance) as to compliance with this chapter and pursuant regulations, and shall issue an order, in writing, sustaining, modifying or withdrawing the prior notice which shall be served as provided in subsection 4. below. Upon failure to comply with such order, the permit of the park shall be revoked.
4. Any person aggrieved by the decision of the City Council or the Zoning Board of Adjustment (if the city has adopted a zoning ordinance) may seek relief in District Court.
5. Whenever the Health Official or Municipal Building Inspector finds that an emergency exists which requires immediate action to protect health, without notice or hearing, an order may be issued reciting the existence of such an emergency and requiring that such action be taken as may be deemed necessary to meet the emergency, including the suspension of the permit. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this chapter, such order shall be effective immediately. Any person to whom such an order is directed, shall comply therewith immediately, but upon petition to the City Council or the Zoning Board of Adjustment (if the city has adopted a zoning ordinance), shall be afforded at the next regular meeting, even if the agenda has been completed. The provisions of subsections 3. and 4. above shall be applicable to such hearing and the order issued thereafter.
