Section 5168.67 | Appeal of fee.
(A) An ICF/IID may appeal the franchise permit fee imposed under section 5168.61 of the Revised Code solely on the grounds that the department of developmental disabilities committed a material error in determining the amount of the fee. A request for an appeal must be received by the department not later than fifteen days after the date the department mails the notice of the fee and must include written materials setting forth the basis for the appeal.
(B) If an ICF/IID submits a request for an appeal within the time required under division (A) of this section, the department shall hold a public hearing in Columbus not later than thirty days after the date the department receives the request for an appeal. The department shall, not later than ten days before the date of the hearing, mail a notice of the date, time, and place of the hearing to the ICF/IID. The department may hear all requested appeals in one public hearing.
(C) On the basis of the evidence presented at the hearing or any other evidence submitted by the ICF/IID, the department may adjust a fee. The department's decision is final.
