Mosquito Abatement

SECTION 23-7-10

§ 23-7-10. Notice to cease operation.

Whenever any city, town, or district commences any activity set forth in this chapter without first having obtained the written consent of the state mosquito abatement board, or violates any rule or regulation of the board, the director of the department of environmental management shall have the power by written notice to order the violator to cease and desist immediately. If the violator does not conform to the board's order, the director may bring prosecution by complaint and warrant and the prosecution shall be made in the district court of the state. The director, without being required to enter into any recognizance or to give surety for cost, may institute those proceedings in the name of the state. It shall be the duty of the attorney general to conduct the prosecution of all of those proceedings brought by the director. The director may obtain relief in equity or by prerogative writ whenever that relief shall be necessary for the proper performance of his or her duties under §§ 23-7-1 – 23-7-15.
