Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 110 . Municipal Boundary Changes
Section 580. Reconsideration

3 AAC 110.580. Reconsideration

(a) Within 18 days after a written statement of decision is mailed under 3 AAC 110.570(f) , a person or entity may file an original and five copies of a request for reconsideration of all or part of that decision, describing in detail the facts and analyses that support the request for reconsideration.

(b) Within 20 days after a written statement of decision is mailed under 3 AAC 110.570(f) , the commission may, on its own motion, order reconsideration of all or part of that decision.

(c) A person or entity filing a request for reconsideration shall provide the department with a copy of the request for reconsideration and supporting materials in an electronic format, unless the department waives this requirement because the person or entity requesting reconsideration lacks a readily accessible means or the capability to provide items in an electronic format. A request for reconsideration must be filed with an affidavit of service of the request for reconsideration on the petitioner and each respondent by regular mail, postage prepaid, or by hand-delivery. A request for reconsideration must also be filed with an affidavit that, to the best of the affiant's knowledge, information, and belief, formed after reasonable inquiry, the request for reconsideration is founded in fact, and is not submitted to harass or to cause unnecessary delay or needless expense in the cost of processing the petition.

(d) If the person or entity filing the request for reconsideration is a group, the request must identify a representative of the group.

(e) The commission will grant a request for reconsideration or, on its own motion, order reconsideration of a decision if the commission determines that

(1) a substantial procedural error occurred in the original proceeding;

(2) the original vote was based on fraud or misrepresentation;

(3) the commission failed to address a material issue of fact or a controlling principle of law; or

(4) new evidence not available at the time of the hearing relating to a matter of significant public policy has become known.

(f) If the commission does not act on a request for reconsideration within 20 days after the decision was mailed under 3 AAC 110.570(f) , the request is automatically denied. If it orders reconsideration or grants a request for reconsideration within 20 days after the decision was mailed under 3 AAC 110.570(f) , the commission will allow a petitioner or respondent 10 days after the date reconsideration is ordered or the request for reconsideration is granted to file an original and five copies of a responsive brief describing in detail the facts and analyses that support or oppose the decision being reconsidered. The petitioner or respondent shall provide the department with a copy of the responsive brief in an electronic format, unless the department waives this requirement because the petitioner or respondent lacks a readily accessible means or the capability to provide items in an electronic format.

(g) Within 90 days after the department receives timely filed responsive briefs, the commission, by means of the decisional meeting procedure set out in 3 AAC 110.570(a) - (f), will issue a decision on reconsideration. A decision on reconsideration by the commission is final on the day that the written statement of decision is mailed, postage prepaid, to the petitioner and the respondents.
