Chapter 110 . Municipal Boundary Changes
Section 480. Responsive briefs and written comments

3 AAC 110.480. Responsive briefs and written comments

(a) If an interested person or entity seeks to participate as a respondent to a petition, that person or entity must have the capacity to sue and be sued, and must file with the department an original and five complete copies of a responsive brief containing facts and analyses favorable or adverse to the petition. If the respondent is a group, the group shall designate one person to represent the group. Copies of the responsive briefs, including maps and other exhibits, must conform to the original in color, size, and other distinguishing characteristics. The respondent shall provide the department with a copy of the responsive brief in an electronic format, unless the department waives this requirement because the respondent lacks a readily accessible means or the capability to provide items in an electronic format.

(b) The responsive brief, and any companion exhibits, must be filed with an affidavit by the respondent that, to the best of the respondent's knowledge, information, and belief, formed after reasonable inquiry, the responsive brief and exhibits are founded in fact and are not submitted to harass or to cause unnecessary delay or needless expense in the cost of processing the petition.

(c) A responsive brief must be received by the department in a timely manner in accordance with 3 AAC 110.640. A responsive brief must be accompanied by an affidavit of service of two copies of the brief on the petitioner by regular mail, postage prepaid, or by hand-delivery.

(d) An interested person or entity may file with the department written comments supporting or opposing the petition. Upon receiving those comments, the department shall provide promptly a copy of the written comments to the petitioner by hand-delivery, electronic mail, facsimile, or postage-prepaid mail. If the written comments, including attachments, exceed 20 pages or if they include colored materials or materials larger than 11 inches by 17 inches, the correspondent shall provide an additional five complete sets of the written comments to the department. Copies of the written comments, including attachments, must conform to the original in color, size, and other distinguishing characteristics. Written comments must be received by the department in a timely manner in accordance with 3 AAC 110.640.
