13.12.710 – Consent orders

The Director of Public Works or his/her authorized designee may enter into Consent Orders, assurances of voluntary compliance, or other similar documents establishing an agreement with any User responsible for noncompliance.  Such documents will include specific action to be taken by the User to correct the noncompliance within a time period specified by the document.  Such documents shall have the same force and effect as the administrative orders issued pursuant to Sections 13.12.720 and 13.12.725 and shall be judicially enforceable.  Issuance of a consent order shall not be a bar against, or a prerequisite for, taking any other action against the User.
