89-187.07. Permitholder; duties; disciplinary actions.

(1) The holder of a permit issued pursuant to the Weights and Measures Act shall comply with the act, the rules and regulations adopted and promulgated pursuant to the act, and any order of the director issued pursuant to the act. The permitholder shall not interfere with the department in the performance of its duties.

(2) A permitholder may be put on probation requiring such person to comply with the conditions set out in an order of probation issued by the director or be ordered to cease and desist pursuant to section 89-196.01 after: (a) The director determines the permitholder has not complied with subsection (1) of this section; (b) the permitholder is given written notice to comply and written notice of the right to a hearing to show cause why the specified order should not be issued; and (c) the director finds that issuing the specified order is appropriate, based on the hearing record or the available information if the hearing is waived by the permitholder.

(3) A permit may be suspended after: (a) The director determines the permitholder has not complied with subsection (1) of this section; (b) the permitholder is given written notice to comply and written notice of the right to a hearing to show cause why the permit should not be suspended; and (c) the director finds that issuing an order suspending the permit is appropriate, based on the hearing record or the available information if the hearing is waived by the permitholder.

(4) A permit may be immediately suspended and the director may order the permitholder's establishment closed prior to hearing when: (a) The director determines an immediate danger to the public health, safety, or welfare exists in the permitholder's establishment; and (b) the permitholder receives written notice to comply and written notice of the right to a hearing to show cause why the suspension should not be sustained. Within fifteen days after the suspension, the permitholder may request in writing a date for a hearing and the director shall consider the interests of the permitholder when the director establishes the date and time of the hearing, except that no hearing shall be held sooner than is reasonable under the circumstances. When a permitholder does not request a hearing date within such fifteen-day period, the director shall establish a hearing date and notify the permitholder of the date and time of such hearing.

(5) A permit may be revoked after: (a) The director determines the permitholder has committed serious, repeated, or multiple violations of any of the requirements of subsection (1) of this section; (b) the permitholder is given written notice to comply and written notice of the right to a hearing to show cause why the permit should not be revoked; and (c) the director finds that issuing an order revoking the permit is appropriate based on the hearing record or on the available information if the hearing is waived by the permitholder.

(6) Any establishment for which the permit has been suspended shall close and remain closed until the permit is reinstated. Any establishment for which the permit has been revoked shall close and remain closed until a new permit has been issued.

(7) The director may terminate proceedings to suspend or revoke a permit or subject a permitholder to an order of the director described in subsection (2) of this section at any time if the reasons for such proceedings no longer exist. A permit which has been suspended may be reinstated, a person with a revoked permit may be issued a new permit, or a permitholder may no longer be subject to such an order if the director determines that the conditions which prompted the suspension, revocation, or order of the director no longer exist.

(8) Proceedings to suspend or revoke a permit or subject a permitholder to an order of the director described in subsection (2) of this section shall not preclude the department from pursuing other administrative, civil, or criminal actions, such as the stop-use or cease and desist order, an injunction, or a misdemeanor action.
