In some of the matters before the board, a person may wish to request a contested case hearing.  If such a request is made before the board’s decision, then the board will consider the request first – before considering the merits of the item before it.  A person who wants a contested case may also wait until the board decides the issue, then request the contested case after the decision.  It is up to you.  Any request must be made orally by the end of the meeting and followed up in writing within ten days.  If no request for contested case is made, the Board will make a decision.  The Department will treat the decision as final and proceed accordingly.
