After such hearing, the Health Officer shall sustain, modify, or withdraw the notice, depending upon his or her findings as to whether compliance with the provisions of this chapter has been met. If the Health Officer shall sustain or modify such notice, it shall be deemed to be an order. Any notice served pursuant to §92.47 shall automatically become an order if a written petition for a hearing is not filed in the office of the Health Officer within ten days after such notice is served. Whenever the Health Officer finds that an emergency exists which requires immediate action to protect the public health he or she may, without notice or hearing, issue an order reciting the existence of such an emergency and requiring that such action be taken as he or she deems necessary to meet the emergency. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this chapter, such order shall be effective immediately, but upon petition to the Health Officer shall be afforded a hearing as soon as possible, in the manner provided in this section. After such hearing, depending upon the finding as to whether the provisions of this chapter have been complied with, the Health Officer shall continue such order in effect, or modify it or revoke it.
