SECTION 16
Summary action
Public Health (PBH) CHAPTER 45, ARTICLE 1, TITLE 2
§ 16. Summary action. Whenever the commissioner, after investigation,
is of the opinion that any person is causing, engaging in or maintaining
a condition or activity which in his opinion constitutes danger to the
health of the people, and that it therefore appears to be prejudicial to
the interests of the people to delay action for fifteen days until an
opportunity for a hearing can be provided in accordance with the
provisions of section twelve-a of this chapter, the commissioner shall
order the person, including any state agency or political subdivision
having jurisdiction, by written notice to discontinue such dangerous
condition or activity or take certain action immediately or within a
specified period of less than fifteen days. As promptly as possible
thereafter, within not to exceed fifteen days, the commissioner shall
provide the person an opportunity to be heard and to present any proof
that such condition or activity does not constitute a danger to the
health of the people.
