§ 626.07  PROCEDURE FOR COMPLAINTS.
   (a)   Any person who claims to have been injured by a discriminatory housing practice may file a complaint with the Department of Community Revitalization. Complaints shall be in writing and shall contain such information as the Department of Community Revitalization requires. Upon receipt of such a complaint, the Department of Community Revitalization shall furnish a copy of the same to the person who allegedly committed the discriminatory housing practice with a request that he meet with the Department of Community Revitalization and the allegedly aggrieved person in an informal conference. All parties shall have the right to be represented by attorney. Nothing said or done in the course of such informal conference may be made public or used as evidence in any subsequent proceedings. Should the person who allegedly committed the discriminatory housing practice fail or refuse to attend such conference, the Department of Community Revitalization will proceed without him to determine whether the unlawful practice has occurred.
   (b)   If, from all of the evidence adduced, the Department of Community Revitalization determines that there has been a discriminatory housing practice, it shall attempt to eliminate or correct such practice by conciliation and persuasion. Should it fail to do so, after diligent effort, it shall refer the complainant to the prosecuting attorney of the City for appropriate action.
