2-1219.Same; penalty for violations; injunctions; jurisdiction; hearings. Any person violating or failing to comply with, any of the provisions of this act, or any rule or regulation adopted thereunder, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars ($500). If any person owning or operating an anhydrous ammonia facility, including transports, tank trailers and applicators, shall fail to make the changes, additions and alterations necessary (a) to correct the defects, and (b) to supply the deficiencies, within the specified time as directed, then the county attorney of the county in which the facility or equipment is located is authorized to file a petition in the district court setting forth the facts and praying for an injunction. The district courts of this state shall have jurisdiction to hear such matters, and may temporarily restrain and temporarily and permanently enjoin the operator or owner from operating such facility or equipment until such time as the defects are corrected and the deficiencies supplied. Before the secretary reports a violation for such prosecution, an opportunity shall be given the person to present his or her views. Nothing in this act shall be construed as requiring the secretary to report for prosecution minor violations of the act whenever the secretary believes that the public interest will be best served by other actions.
