(1) If the department's final decision is to deny the license application or
to revoke an existing license to operate a solid waste management system, the
applicant (or licensee) and the local health officer have an opportunity to
appeal the decision to the board. The
department shall inform them of this right in the letter of denial or
revocation. An appeal, if one is
sought, must be filed with the board within 30 days after the notice of denial
or revocation of license is received.
(2) If the department issues a license but the
local health officer refuses to validate it, the applicant or any person
aggrieved by the local health officer's decision may appeal the local health
officer's decision to the board. An
appeal must be filed within 30 days after receipt of written notice of the
local health officer's decision.
(3) The act does not provide third parties with
the right of appeal to the board from a decision made by the department to
issue, revoke, or deny a license.
