Whenever a person shall violate any provision of this chapter the state department or local board may, in its discretion, instead of prosecuting such person for the recovery of any prescribed penalty, cause an order to be served on such person commanding him to discontinue or abate the violation or to make such improvements as may be necessary to abate the violation within a reasonable time to be fixed in the order by the state department or local board.
