Article I. Definitions
Any affected employer may appeal administrative decisions regarding exemptions, modification of goals, CTR program elements, violations, and penalties to the designated hearing examiner. An appeal must be filed within fifteen working days of the administrative decision. An appeal is filed with the clerk of the board of county commissioners of Spokane County at 1116 West Broadway Avenue, Spokane, Washington, 99260. An appeal must be in writing and specify the decision being appealed as well as the specific basis for the appeal.
The designated hearing examiner, upon notification of a timely appeal by the clerk of the board, will evaluate the appeal to determine if the decision is consistent with the CTR law and the CTR guidelines. The examiner may schedule a meeting between the affected employer and the City or its contractor. The decision of the examiner is in writing and sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the affected employer.
A decision of the board of county commissioners is final and conclusive unless, within twenty calendar days from the date of the written decision, the employer appeals to the superior court pursuant to RCW 36.32.330.
