The extension may be granted at any time if a written request is filed with the State Fire Marshal within or prior to the period for which the extension may be granted. If the time for payment is extended at the request of a person, interest at the rate established under ORS 305.220, for each month, or fraction of a month, from the time the payment was originally due to the time payment is actually made, shall be added and paid.
(2) If the person fails to pay the amount due, the State Fire Marshal may either:
(a) Bring an action for the recovery of the fee due; or
(b) Initiate a contested case hearing according to the applicable provisions of ORS chapter 183.
(3) Notwithstanding any provision of ORS chapter 183, nothing in subsection (2) of this section shall be considered to require the State Fire Marshal to conduct a contested case hearing as a prerequisite to bringing an action under subsection (2)(a) of this section.
