7190.0007 CLAIM ACCEPTANCE.
A claim shall begin when the Pollution Control Agency accepts for filing an application for compensation. The agency shall accept for filing an application that the agency determines is from an eligible person, and cites injury or damage described as eligible for compensation in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 115B.
Refusal to accept.
If the agency determines that the application is ineligible, the agency will forward the application to staff. The staff member will review the application and the agency's determination and render a written decision on the eligibility of the application within 14 days. If the staff member determines the application is ineligible, the agency will notify the applicant in writing of the refusal to accept the application for filing and the reasons for finding it ineligible. The agency shall report at the regular meeting of the agency on the number of applications determined since the previous meeting to be ineligible and the reasons for ineligibility.
Refiling an application.
An applicant may not appeal a determination of ineligibility but may submit another application if that application contains new information relevant to determining eligibility.
