Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 110 . Municipal Boundary Changes
Section 570. Decisional meeting

3 AAC 110.570. Decisional meeting

(a) Within 90 days after the last commission hearing on a proposed change, the commission will convene a decisional meeting to examine the written briefs, exhibits, comments, and testimony, and to reach a decision regarding the proposed change. The commission will not receive new evidence, testimony, or briefing during the decisional meeting. However, the chair of the commission may ask the department or a person for a point of information or clarification.

(b) Three members of the commission constitute a quorum for the conduct of business at a decisional meeting.

(c) If the commission determines that a proposed change must be altered to meet the standards contained in the Constitution of the State of Alaska, AS 29.04, AS 29.05, AS 29.06, or this chapter, the commission may alter the proposed change and accept the petition as altered. If the commission determines that a precondition must be satisfied before the proposed change can take effect, the commission will include that precondition in its decision. A motion to alter, impose preconditions upon, or approve a proposed change requires at least three affirmative votes by commission members to constitute approval.

(d) If the commission determines that a proposed change fails to meet the standards contained in the Constitution of the State of Alaska, AS 29.04, AS 29.05, AS 29.06, or this chapter, the commission will reject the proposed change. If a motion to grant a proposed change receives fewer than three affirmative votes by commission members, the proposed change is rejected.

(e) The commission will keep written minutes of a decisional meeting. Each vote taken by the commission will be entered in the minutes. The approved minutes are a public record.

(f) Within 30 days after the date of its decision, the commission will file as a public record a written statement explaining all major considerations leading to the decision. A copy of the statement will be mailed to the petitioner, respondents, and other interested persons requesting a copy. The department shall execute and file an affidavit of mailing as a part of the public record of the proceedings.

(g) Unless reconsideration is requested timely under 3 AAC 110.580 or the commission, on its own motion, orders reconsideration under 3 AAC 110.580, a decision by the commission is final on the day that the written statement of decision is mailed, postage prepaid to the petitioners and the respondents.
