(1) The city manager may order work stopped whenever the city manager has reason to believe work is being performed contrary to this land use code or to a permit issued under this land use code, or that the project for which the work is being performed is in violation of a provision of this land use code.

(2) The city shall post a written notice of the stop work order at the project site, or serve such notice on any person engaged in the work or causing such work to be performed. Upon the posting or service of notice, all persons engaged in the work or causing the work to be performed shall immediately stop such work until authorized in writing by the city manager to proceed. Failure to stop work shall be independent grounds for penalties and additional enforcement actions.

(3) Any person to whom a stop work order is issued pursuant to this section may file a written notice of appeal in the manner prescribed in EC 2.021 Appeal Procedures. Notwithstanding any provisions of this code to the contrary, the filing of an appeal shall not stay an order issued hereunder, which shall remain in effect until the final determination of the appeal, or the city manager issues a revised order lifting the stop work order.
