WAC 371-08-335

Filing a timely appeal with the board.

(1) An appeal before the board is initiated by filing a notice of appeal with the board at the environmental and land use hearings office and by serving a copy of the appeal notice on the agency whose decision is being appealed. For the board to acquire jurisdiction both such filing and such service must be timely accomplished. (2) The notice of appeal shall be filed with the board within thirty days of the date of receipt of the order or decision unless otherwise provided by law. The board's rule governing the computation of time (WAC 371-08-310) shall determine how the thirty-day appeal period is calculated. The "date of receipt" of an order or decision means: (a) Five business days after the date of mailing; or (b) The date of actual receipt, when the actual receipt date can be proven by a preponderance of the evidence. The recipient's sworn affidavit or declaration indicating the date of receipt, which is unchallenged by the agency, shall constitute sufficient evidence of actual receipt. The date of actual receipt, however, may not exceed forty-five days from the date of mailing. (3) An appeal may be filed with the board by personal delivery, commercial delivery, fax, electronic mail, or first-class, registered or certified mail. An appeal is filed with the board on the date the board actually receives the notice of the appeal, not the date that the notice is mailed. Upon receiving the notice of appeal, the board will acknowledge receipt. The date stamped on the appeal notice shall be prima facie evidence of the filing date. The board may thereafter require that additional copies be filed. [Statutory Authority: RCW 43.21B.170, 90.58.175. WSR 15-03-044, § 371-08-335, filed 1/14/15, effective 2/14/15.
