How can the Citizen Liaison help me?
The Citizen Liaison can help you better understand LPAT policies and practices so you can participate more effectively in LPAT’s process. The Citizen Liaison can answer questions such as:
- How do I file my appeal?
- What is the appeal process?
- What is my role?
- What happens at a hearing event?
Can the Citizen Liaison help me file my appeal?
The Citizen Liaison can help explain rules, processes and procedures, but cannot provide legal advice. For example, the Citizen Liaison can help you to better understand which form to fill out for your appeal and answer questions about the materials being asked for in your submission. However, the Citizen Liaison cannot tell you what to include in a form, as that could be considered providing legal advice.
If you need help preparing your submission, you may wish to speak to a planning or legal professional. In addition to the Citizen Liaison, there are many useful tools and resources posted on the website to help you better understand LPAT’s processes, including Appeal Process, E-Status, E-Decisions.
