The suspension order shall be delivered or mailed to the permittee indicated on the building permit at his address thereon, within 24 hours of the date such order is issued, and also may be posted in a conspicuous place at the building site. The License Collector shall determine the amount of a bond, not less than the amount of the contractor's license fees due, which shall be prescribed in the suspension or stop work order. The bond as prescribed herein shall be payable to the City with good and sufficient surety as determined by the Comptroller, and if such a bond is filed with the Comptroller, the effective date of the suspension order shall be stayed. Such bond shall remain in effect pending the final decision in any subsequent appeal. The suspension or stop work order may be appealed to the Board of Tax Appeals under the procedures prescribed by law, and the Board shall determine the validity of the suspension or stop work order, the amount of the bond and all facts necessary in determining the amount of contractor's license fees due the City. All City officials and the Metropolitan St. Louis police department shall cooperate in the enforcement of these provisions and any suspension or stop work order.
