Fail­ure to obtain a per­mit for devel­op­ment in the flood­plain or fail­ure to com­ply with the con­di­tions of a per­mit or a vari­ance shall be deemed to be a vio­la­tion of this Code.  Upon due inves­ti­ga­tion, the Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways may deter­mine that a vio­la­tion of the min­i­mum stan­dards of this Code exists.  The Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways shall noti­fy the own­er in writ­ing of such violation.

(A) If such own­er fails after ten (10) days notice to cor­rect the violation:

  1. The Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways shall request the Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney to make appli­ca­tion to the cir­cuit court for an injunc­tion requir­ing con­for­mance with this Code or make such oth­er order as the court deems nec­es­sary to secure com­pli­ance with the Code.
  2. Any per­son who vio­lates this Code shall upon con­vic­tion there­of be fined not less than Fifty Dol­lars ($50.00) or more than Sev­en Hun­dred Fifty Dol­lars ($750.00) for each offense.
  3. A sep­a­rate offense shall be deemed com­mit­ted upon each day dur­ing or on which a vio­la­tion occurs or continues.
  4. The Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways shall record a notice of vio­la­tion on the title of the property.

(B) The Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways shall inform the own­er that any such vio­la­tion is con­sid­ered a will­ful act to increase flood dam­ages and there­fore may cause cov­er­age by a Stan­dard Flood Insur­ance Pol­i­cy to be suspended.

The Coun­ty Super­in­ten­dent of High­ways is autho­rized to issue an order requir­ing the sus­pen­sion of the sub­ject devel­op­ment.  The stop-work order shall be in writ­ing, indi­cate the rea­son for the issuance, and shall order the action, if nec­es­sary, to resolve the cir­cum­stances requir­ing the stop-work order.  The stop-work order con­sti­tutes a sus­pen­sion of the permit.

No site devel­op­ment per­mit shall be per­ma­nent­ly sus­pend­ed or revoked until a hear­ing is held by the Coun­ty Board of Com­mis­sion­ers.  Writ­ten notice of such hear­ing shall be served on the per­mit­tee and shall state:

  1. The grounds for the com­plaint, rea­sons for sus­pen­sion or revo­ca­tion, and
  2. the time and place of the hearing.

At such hear­ing the per­mit­tee shall be giv­en an oppor­tu­ni­ty to present evi­dence on their behalf.  At the con­clu­sion of the hear­ing, the Coun­ty Board of Com­mis­sion­ers shall deter­mine whether the per­mit shall be sus­pend­ed or revoked.

(C) Noth­ing here­in shall pre­vent Union Coun­ty from tak­ing such oth­er law­ful action to pre­vent or rem­e­dy any vio­la­tions.  All costs con­nect­ed there­with shall accrue to the per­son or per­sons responsible.
