The Director of Health or his authorized agent, whenever he finds after investigation that any person is causing, engaging in or maintaining any condition or activity which, in his judgment, constitutes a violation of these regulations may, without prior hearing, issue a cease and desist order in writing to the person to discontinue, abate or alleviate the condition or activity. Upon receipt of the order, the person shall immediately discontinue, abate or alleviate, or shall refrain from causing, engaging in or maintaining the condition or activity. The Director of Health or his authorized agent, shall within ten days of the order hold a hearing to provide the person opportunity to be heard and show that such condition does not exist. The order shall remain in effect until ten days after the hearing within which time the Director of Health or his authorized agent will report to the corporation counsel with recommendations for other appropriate action based on the hearing as it deems necessary. Any and all legal action taken thereafter will be the sole responsibility of the corporation counsel and the city.
