  3.  If, in the opinion of the director, the investigation discloses that a violation does exist which would not be a criminal violation, he may by conference, conciliation and persuasion endeavor to eliminate the violation.

  4.  In case of the failure by conference, conciliation and persuasion to correct or remedy any violation, the director may order abatement, suspend or revoke a permit, whichever action or actions the director deems appropriate.  The director shall cause to have issued and served upon the person a written notice of such order together with a copy of the order, which shall specify the provisions of sections 643.010 to 643.355 or the rule or the condition of the permit of which the person is alleged to be in violation, and a statement of the manner in, and the extent to which the person is alleged to be in violation.  Service may be made upon any person within or without the state by registered mail, return receipt requested.  Any person against whom the director issues an order may appeal the order to the commission within thirty days, and the appeal shall stay the enforcement of such order until final determination by the commission.  The commission shall set a hearing on a day not less than thirty days after the date of the request.  The commission may sustain, reverse, or modify the director's order, or make such other order as the commission deems appropriate under the circumstances.  If any order issued by the director is not appealed within the time herein provided, the order becomes final and may be enforced as provided in section 643.151.
