The meeting was called to order at 10:08 AM MST by Anthony J. Hughes.




The Chairman asked the Board members if they required executive session for any discussion of the pending applications.  There was no discussion necessary, and Mr. Pinther made a motion to approve all submitted applications.  This motion was seconded by Mr. Timmins, motion carried.


Mr. Pinther made a motion to approve # 901108974 once corrected insurance was received.  Motion seconded by Mr. Timmins, motion carried.




Mr. Bird joined the call.  He had asked the Board to reconsider its denial for registration.  The registration was denied at the 2/17/10 meeting due to Mr. Bird’s having marked on his application that he did not have a disciplinary action against him, but he did have action against him in Washington.  Mr. Bird had been sent a letter requesting information and it was reviewed by the Board before the registration was denied.


Based on Board Rule 165 (requiring that application material be “free from any fraud or material misrepresentations”).  At this time Ms. Anderson sent Mr. Bird a letter of denial, informing him of his rights to appeal this decision.  Mr. Bird chose to appeal the decision and asked to discuss this decision with the Board on 3/9/10.  Mr. Bird informed the Board that this was not a construction infraction but rather an advertisement infraction that was created from an old business partner’s error.  He said he did not understand the Board’s denial.  The Board members expressed that one of the concerns was that the $1000 fine was outstanding.  Mr. Bird stated that he was in the process of disputing the charge with Washington and had paid almost $600 of the $1000 fine that had been imposed on him.


The Board asked Mr. Bird to supply documentation of the dispute and any other supporting proof to substantiate Mr. Bird’s statements. 


A motion was made by Mr. Pinther that the registration would be approved pending Mr. Bird providing proof of good standing with Washington.  Meaning payment in full of his fines, or proof of a payment arrangement with the disciplining state.  Motion was seconded by Mr. Timmins, motion carried.




The discussion of the insurance audit process by Ms. Peel was tabled for a future Board meeting.






Motion to adjourn was made by Mr. Timmins.  Motion seconded by Mr. Pinther, motion carried.


Meeting was adjourned at 10:31 AM.
