A. The County Engineer or designee shall have the power to revoke land-disturbing permits issued pursuant to Sec. 3.8, Sedimentation and Erosion Control, and Sec. 12.10, Sedimentation and Erosion Control. When the Sedimentation and Erosion Control Officer or designee proposes to the County Engineer or designee that a land-disturbing permit be revoked, the Officer or designee shall serve the permittee or other responsible person with a notice of intent to revoke specifying the time and date of a pre-termination hearing to be held before the County Engineer or designee. The notice shall be delivered at least three working days, Monday through Friday, before the date specified for the pre-termination hearing.
B. Should the County Engineer or designee determine that the land-disturbing permit should be revoked, he/she shall serve the permittee or other responsible person with a notice of revocation. Upon receipt of the notice of revocation, the responsible person shall immediately cause or order the cessation of all land-disturbing activities except those activities which are specifically directed towards bringing the site into a state of compliance.
C. The person responsible for the land-disturbing activity may appeal the revocation of a land-disturbing permit to the Board of Commissioners by submitting a written demand to the Clerk to the Board of Commissioners for a hearing within 15 days after receipt of the written notice of revocation. The written demand must specify, in detail, the factual and/or legal basis for the appeal. No grounds other than those so specified may be argued.
D. No person shall resume or continue any land-disturbing activity other than those necessary to bring the site into a state of compliance after receipt of a revocation notice and before reissuance of a land-disturbing permit or decision of the Board of Commissioners reinstating a land-disturbing permit. After the Sedimentation and Erosion Control Officer or designee has inspected the site and approved the remedial work, the responsible party may reapply for a land-disturbing permit. The fee for reapplication shall be 100% of the current application fee.
