40.460.760 Revocation of Permits

A.    Any permit may, after a hearing with adequate notice to the permittee and the public, be rescinded by the issuing authority upon the finding that a permittee has not complied with conditions of a permit. Noncompliance could result from either a failure to take corrective action in response to a violation, or a misrepresentation of the facts in the permit application. When required, corrective action shall be completed within ninety (90) days of the issuance of the order by the Shoreline Administrator.

B.    If Ecology is of the opinion that noncompliance exists, the department shall provide written notice to the local government and the permittee. If Ecology is of the opinion that the noncompliance continues to exist thirty (30) days after the date of the notice, and the local government has taken no action to revoke the permit, Ecology may petition the Shorelines Hearings Board for a revocation of the permit upon written notice of the petition to the local government and the permittee if the request by Ecology is made to the Hearings Board within fifteen (15) days of the end of the thirty (30) day notice to the local government.

C.    Revocation of a permit does not preclude the assessment of penalties in Section 40.460.745. Appeals of the revocation order shall be in accordance with Section 40.460.735.
