The agency announced the suspension orders yesterday, accusing Manke of "gross negligence" and "willful violations" of the state's health and safety standards. Manke had reportedly made comments indicating that he had no intention of following governor-ordered closure orders for non-essential businesses.
Local police had already cited him for ignoring the order. He faces two misdemeanor charges.
