A hearing to determine whether a right, license, certificate, registration, or privilege should be granted, issued, or renewed shall be initiated either by the board or by the applicant by filing a statement of issues. The statement of issues shall be a written statement specifying the statutes and rules with which the applicant must show compliance by producing proof at the hearing and, in addition, any additional matters which have come to the attention of the initiating party and which would bear upon the issues presented.
The statement of issues shall be verified by the initiating party. The verification may be on information and belief.
If the board is the initiating party, the statement of issues shall be served in the same manner as an accusation, and shall be accompanied by a notice of hearing substantially in the form set forth in part 5615.0600. If the applicant is the initiating party, the statement of issues shall be served on the board by registered or certified mail, addressed to the board at its office in St. Paul, Minnesota, and such service shall be deemed a request for hearing.
Within ten days after such service, the board shall deliver or mail to the applicant a notice of hearing, substantially in the form set forth in part 5615.0600.
In either case, the hearing shall be held not less than 20 days nor more than 120 days after service of the statement of issues.
Hearings shall be held in St. Paul, Minnesota, at a place designated by the board, unless the parties, by agreement, select another place within the state of Minnesota.
