Rule 5501:2-1-11 | Right of appeal.
(A) For thirty days following notification of the denial of an application for a permit, the person so notified has the right to request a formal hearing before the director, or a representative designated by the director, for the purpose of showing cause as to why the permit should be issued. If a formal hearing is requested, the director will set the date, time and place for such hearing and so notify the person requesting the appeal. The date set for the hearing shall be within fifteen days, but not earlier than seven days, after the person has requested the hearing unless otherwise agreed. A stenographic record of the testimony and other evidence presented at such hearing will not be prepared unless the person requesting the hearing also requests in writing that such record be prepared to serve as a basis for appeal from the final order of the director. If a hearing is not requested within thirty days of the notification, or if such hearing is held, the decision of the director becomes a final order.
(B) Any party adversely affected by the final order of the director under this chapter may appeal from that order in the manner and with the rights prescribed under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code.
