(a) As an additional condition of approval of a DMP under section 68.514, a DMP permittee shall consent to allowing the County the right to inspect the applicable project site during normal business hours without notice. Upon request, the DMP permittee shall make available to the inspector or DMP compliance official the receipts and daily log of C&D required by section 68.518.
(b) If a DMP permittee or any of the DMP permittee's agents or employees refuse to allow a County inspector to inspect the site or the DMP permittee's daily log and receipts, the County shall have the right to suspend the DMP permittee's grading, demolition, or building permit. The County shall also have the right to obtain an inspection warrant under Code of Civil Procedure sections 1822.50 et seq. The County shall also have the right to suspend the permit: (1) if the DMP permittee fails to maintain or have available the daily log or receipts required by this article, (2) if the DMP permittee violates any other provision of this article, or (3) if the DMP permittee commits any other act which would be grounds for suspension of a grading, demolition, or building permit.
(c) If the County decides to suspend a grading, demolition, or building permit under this section 68.519, the County shall issue a notice of suspension and serve the DMP permittee under section 11.112 of this Code. The suspension shall be effective 15 days from the date the County serves the notice of suspension, unless the DMP permittee appeals the notice of suspension under section 68.520, which stays the effective date of the suspension until the appeal is decided. If the County determines that any excavation, grading, construction, or demolition site is unsafe or that the DMP permittee has knowingly failed to comply with section 68.516, the County may suspend the permit immediately and advise the DMP permittee in the notice of suspension that the permit is suspended immediately and state the reasons for the immediate suspension. A notice of immediate suspension is also appealable under section 68.520, but an appeal does not stay the immediate suspension of the permit.
(d) It shall be unlawful for any DMP permittee to continue to operate under a DMP in violation of subsection (c) above.
(e) It shall also be unlawful for an applicant or a DMP permittee to knowingly provide false information to the County under this article.
