FEATHER RIVER AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

RULE 9.7 - PERMIT ACTIONS
(Adopted 6/91)

The Air Pollution Control Officer may request the hearing board to hold a public hearing to determine whether a permit should be revoked.

The Air Pollution Control Officer may also suspend a permit if a permittee fails to furnish all required information. He may then request that the hearing board hold a public hearing to determine whether the suspended permit should be reinstated, or he may reinstate the permit if in his opinion good reason exists to do so. Within ten (10) days after the receipt of a Notice of Suspension, the permittee may file a demand with the hearing board for a public hearing to determine whether or not the permit was properly suspended.

The hearing board must hold a public hearing to consider permit matters within thirty (30) days after receiving a request for the hearing from either the Air Pollution Control Officer or the permittee. The board must notify all concerned persons of the date, time and place of the hearing not less than ten (10) days before the hearing.

Regarding permit matters, the hearing board may:

  1. revoke an existing permit;
  2. find that no violation exists and reinstate a suspended permit;
  3. remove the suspension of a suspended permit pending the furnishing, by the permittee, of the required information; or
  4. continue the suspension of the permit.
