(A)   An administrative hearing officer may set aside any order entered by default and set a new hearing date, upon a petition filed within 21 days after the issuance of the order of default, if the administrative hearing officer determines that the petitioner’s failure to appear at the hearing was for good cause or, at any time, if the petitioner establishes that the petitioner was not provided with proper service of process. If the petition is granted, the administrative hearing officer must proceed with a new hearing on the underlying matter as soon as practical.
   (B)   If any order is set aside under this section, the administrative hearing officer must enter an order extinguishing any lien which has been recorded for any debt due and owing as a result of the vacated default order and directing the city to refund any fines or penalties paid pursuant to the vacated order.
