Appeals shall be conducted pursuant to the adjudication provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act. (Government Code Section 11500 et seq.)

The informal office conference will be conducted by the executive officer or his/her designee within 30 calendars days of receiving the request.
(c) The executive officer or his/her designee shall hold an informal office conference upon request as provided for in subdivision (b) with the person or entity cited and their legal counsel or authorized representative if they desire representation at the informal office conference. At the conclusion of the informal office conference, the executive officer or his/her designee may affirm, modify or dismiss the citation, including any administrative fine levied or order of abatement issued. The executive officer or his/her designee shall state in writing the reasons for their action and serve or send by certified mail, a copy of their findings and decision to the person or entity cited within 14 calendar days from the date of the informal office conference.

If the citation is dismissed after the informal office conference, the request for a hearing on the matter of the citation shall be deemed to be withdrawn.
