(2) The department may make inspections of elevators in such municipality or county for the purpose of determining that the provisions of this chapter are being met and may cancel the contract with any municipality or county which the department finds has failed to comply with such contract or the provisions of this chapter. The amendments to chapter 399 by this act shall apply only to the installation, relocation, or alteration of an elevator for which a permit has been issued after October 1, 1990.
