(2) Where a public health hazard as defined in subdivision (b) of this section is found, the portion of the campground constituting the hazard may be placarded to prohibit use until the hazard is corrected in order to protect the public health or safety of the occupants. When a placard is used, it shall be conspicuously posted at each entrance or walkway leading to the portion of the property where the hazard exists. The placard shall state the authority for its placement and indicate that concealment, mutilation, alteration or removal of it by any person without permission of the permit-issuing official shall constitute a violation of this Chapter and the Public Health Law.
(3) As soon as possible, and in any event within 15 days after placarding a facility, the operator shall be provided with an opportunity to be heard and present evidence that continued operation of the facility does not constitute a danger to the health or safety of the public. The hearing shall be conducted by the permit-issuing official or designated hearing officer.
(4) The permit-issuing official or designated representative shall inspect the premises within two working days of notification that the hazard has been eliminated, and remove the placard(s) after verifying correction.
