New Jersey Revised Statutes § 13:1g-11 - Violations; Investigation; Order To Cease; Enforcement; Corrections By Violator; Hearings

13:1G-11. Violations; investigation; order to cease; enforcement; corrections by violator; hearings
Whenever the department has cause to believe that any person is violating any code, rule or regulation promulgated by the department, the department shall cause a prompt investigation to be made in connection therewith.

If upon inspection the department discovers a condition which is in violation of any provision of this act or any code, rule or regulation promulgated pursuant thereto, it shall be authorized to order such violation to cease and to take such steps necessary to enforce such an order. The said order shall state the items which are in violation and shall provide a reasonable specified time within which the violation must cease.

The person responsible shall make the corrections necessary to comply with the requirements of this act or code, rule or regulation promulgated pursuant thereto within the time specified in the order.

Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent the department from prosecuting any violation of this act or any code, rule or regulation promulgated pursuant thereto notwithstanding that such violation is corrected in accordance with its order. The department shall not be prevented from directly prosecuting any violations of this act or any code, rule, or regulation promulgated pursuant thereto, without the necessity of first issuing an order.

Any person aggrieved by an order of the department under this act may, upon application made within 15 days after notice thereof, be entitled to a hearing before the department which shall within 30 days thereafter hold a hearing of which at least 15 days' written notice shall be given to such persons. Within 30 days after such hearing the department shall issue an appropriate order modifying, approving or disapproving its prior order. A copy of such order shall be served upon all interested parties. Pending the determination by the department and upon application therefor the department may stay the operation of such order upon such terms and conditions as it may deem proper.
