Conduct of hearing.
An appellant has a right to a hearing before the local energy conservation board, or the administrative law judge, whichever is appropriate. (See part 7620.0300.) At the hearing the parties may present and cross examine witnesses, and present written evidence, rebuttal testimony and argument with respect to the issue or issues raised in the appeal.
The local energy conservation board or the administrative law judge shall prepare an official record of each hearing. A party requesting a verbatim transcript of the hearing shall bear the expense of preparing the transcript.
The chair of the local energy conservation board and the administrative law judge shall use procedures set by the Office of Administrative Hearings at the hearing. The administrative law judge or local conservation board may prohibit devices which interfere with the hearing and may evict persons who disrupt the hearing.
