4775.06 Enforcement officer.

An enforcement officer appointed by the executive director to assist the executive director in carrying out this chapter shall report to the executive director and the motor vehicle repair board the name and address of any motor vehicle repair operator that the officer has reasonable grounds to believe is operating in violation of this chapter, and shall notify the operator of the suspected violation. The report shall be based on investigation practices and procedures approved by the board. Within sixty days after notification is sent, an enforcement officer shall determine whether the motor vehicle repair operator who has been notified of a suspected violation has come into compliance with the requirements of this chapter. If the motor vehicle repair operator fails to correct the suspected violation within sixty days after the date the operator receives the notification, the enforcement officer shall notify the executive director and the board of the operator's failure to correct the suspected violation. Upon receiving a second notification of an operator's failure to comply with this chapter, the executive director shall notify the government entity having enforcement authority over the condition or activity giving rise to the suspected violation in writing of the condition or activity, the nature of the suspected violation, and the name and address of the operator suspected of violating this chapter. An enforcement officer shall monitor periodically the progress of any action taken in connection with the suspected violation with the appropriate government entity, including any investigation or charges that are filed in connection with the suspected violation. Upon obtaining such information, the executive director or the enforcement officer monitoring such progress shall notify the board of the progress of the suspected violation and any accompanying investigation, charges, or other action taken in connection with the suspected violation.
