§ 139-1 Withdrawal requests.

Any request for a public hearing may be withdrawn upon written request signed by the original applicant submitted to the Secretary or other designated official not less than 24 hours before the scheduled hearing with payment of any required processing fee. When a public hearing request is withdrawn, the original application fee is forfeited and the request, or one substantially like it, cannot be scheduled again until a period of 12 months has elapsed. Any future application will be treated like a new request and shall be subject to all applicable fees, rules, regulations, and/or policies in place on the date of the new application. If an applicant fails to request withdrawal within the permitted time frame, the hearing will be conducted as scheduled and the request requiring a public hearing may either be approved, tabled, or denied.

§ 139-2 Continuance requests.

Any request for a public hearing may be continued upon written request submitted to the Secretary or other designated official not less than 24 hours before the scheduled hearing with payment of any required processing fee. Any actual costs incurred as a result of such continuance shall be paid in full by the applicant before the application is rescheduled for another public hearing. If an applicant fails to request a continuance within the permitted time frame, the hearing may be continued by majority vote or the hearing may be conducted as scheduled and the request requiring a public hearing may either be approved, tabled, or denied.
