Section: 5

SubSection: 03 Determination of probable cause for enforcement hearing

In the event that the informal efforts at resolution are ineffective or otherwise inappropriate, the franchising authority may notice the franchisee to meet with the franchising authority on not less than ten days notice to determine whether or not probable cause exists to believe that the franchisee has faded, neglected or refused to comply with the provisions of these regulations.

The probable cause determination shall be initiated by the fran­chising authority\'s general statement of the alleged violations under investigation and the general nature of the evidence then known to the franchising authority. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the nature and extent of evidence which may be presented by the franchising authority in any subsequent enforcement hearing pursuant to Section 2.100.5.04 shall not be limited or abridged by reason of the present­ment or non-presentment or recitation or non-recitation of such evidence in the course of the probable cause determination. (Ord. 94­06 § 9 (part), 1994.)
