A. Reasons For.
1. Serious and/or Repeated Violations. When enforcement efforts have failed and serious and/or repeated violations of Chapters 246-260 and 246-262 WAC continue, and such violations represent a serious public health hazard or represent continued poor sanitary and safety practices of a serious nature, the permit may be revoked by the Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee.
2. Interference with Environmental Health Staff. When water recreation facility staff have prevented inspection activities or otherwise interfered in the performance of duty of Snohomish Health District staff, the permit may be revoked by the Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee.
3. Operation in Defiance. Water recreation facilities that continue to operate without a valid permit and in defiance of a permit suspension shall be subject to permit revocation for a period of not less than five days.
1. Hearing. The Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee will not revoke a water recreation facility operating permit until an opportunity has been provided for a hearing before the Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee. Written notification of the hearing, including the time and place of the hearing, shall be made to the permit holder within 30 days of the last inspection or field visit relative to the action. The Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee shall make a final finding based upon the complete hearing record and shall sustain, modify or rescind any notice or record considered in the hearing. A written report of the hearing decision shall be furnished to the holder of the permit by the Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee within 15 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
2. Health Officer’s Order. Permits shall be revoked through issuance of a Health Officer’s order, said order shall be delivered to the facility operator and mailed to the owner of the facility by both regular and certified mail. Notice by mail will be considered acceptable if the order cannot be delivered to the facility.
3. Application for New Permit. A permit holder whose water recreation facility operating permit has been revoked may make written application and pay fee for the purpose of obtaining a new permit. A hearing will be provided before the Health Officer or Health Officer’s designee to determine if a new permit should be issued.
