The following penalties may also be imposed:
A. Stop Work Order
In coordination with the Inspections Director, the Floodplain Administrator, or designee, may order work on any site within a Special Flood Hazard Area to be immediately stopped whenever a building or part thereof is being constructed, reconstructed, altered, or repaired in violation of this Ordinance. The stop work order shall be in writing and directed to the person doing the work. The stop work order shall state the specific work to be stopped, the specific reasons for the stoppage, and the conditions under which the work may be resumed.

B. Revocation of Permits
In coordination with the Inspections Director, the Floodplain Administrator, or designee, may revoke and require the return of a permit by notifying the permit holder in writing stating the reason for the revocation. Permits shall be revoked for any substantial departure from the approved application, plans, or specifications; for refusal or failure to comply with the requirements of State or local laws; or for false statements or misrepresentations made in securing the permit. Any permit mistakenly issued in violation of an applicable State or local law may also be revoked.
C. Correction of Violations
D. Actions in the Event of Failure to Take Corrective Action
1. If the owner or occupant of any building or property notified of a violation fails to take corrective action, the Floodplain Administrator, or designee, shall provide written notice consistent with the requirements of paragraph 15.2.1, Notice of Violation, that the building or property is in violation of the provisions of Sec. 8.4, Floodplain and Flood Damage Protection Standards.
2. The Floodplain Administrator shall schedule a hearing at a designated place and time, not later than 10 days after the date of notice, at which time the owner or occupant of the building or property shall be entitled to be heard in person or by counsel and to present arguments and evidence pertaining to the violation.
3. If, following the hearing, the Floodplain Administrator finds that the building or property is in violation of the provisions of Sec. 8.4, Floodplain and Flood Damage Protection Standards, he/she shall issue an order in writing to the owner or occupant of the building or property to correct the violation by altering, vacating, or demolishing the building or removing any fill, whichever is appropriate, within a period deemed reasonable by the Floodplain Administrator.
