July 31, 2015 - The Administrative Law Judge respectfully recommends that the February 6, 2015 Order of Revocation revoking M.T.’s license to provide child foster care be rescinded; and that the disqualification arising from A.M.’s charge of domestic assault on April 18, 2013, be reversed, or, in the alternative, set aside.
July 27, 2015 - Licensee did not violate the terms of its license. Licensee did violate the noise ordinance of the Saint Paul Legislative Code. Five hundred dollars is the presumptive matrix penalty and there are no substantial or compelling reasons to deviate from that penalty.
July 20, 2015 - The Panel concludes that the Complainant Kirsten Kennedy has established by a preponderance of the evidence that Respondent Tom Borchardt participated in the dissemination of campaign material that lacked a disclaimer in the form required by Minn. Stat. § 211B.04(b), (d). The Panel concludes further that a civil penalty of $2,400 is appropriate.

1. The Department has the statutory authority to adopt the rules.
2. The rules were adopted in compliance with the procedural requirements of Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 14, and Minnesota Rules, Chapter 1400 (2014).

4. The rules are APPROVED.

2. Bloomington’s Motion for Reconsideration is DENIED; and
3. An Amended Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Decision is hereby issued to reflect the Administrative Law Judge’s decision after reconsideration.

June 29, 2015 - Based upon Bloomington’s enrollment, financial contribution, usage and other factors, Bloomington’s proportionate share of the Intermediate District’s assets and liabilities is $90,751.00. All or a portion of said amount may be paid to Bloomington by the Intermediate District through non-member tuition credits for Bloomington students to enroll in the Intermediate District. The parties are directed to agree to a payment schedule that minimizes financial disruption to the Intermediate District and its remaining Member Districts. If the parties cannot agree to a payment schedule by July 15, 2015, the Administrative Law Judge shall determine the payment schedule, payment type, and the interest, if any, to be applied to the balance owed, after allowing additional written argument by the parties.
