For Board Determination:

 

Of the 119 pending cases under investigation there are 63 failed inspection cases using the old form (4 2008 and 59 2009).  IBOL request the Board provide guidance as to whether these cases should be closed and re-inspected using the new inspection form or remain open for further investigation.

 

I-LPG-2009-65/66/85/86  C alleged Rs are operating unlicensed LPG dispensers. INV revealed Rs are now licensed.  IBOL recommends the Board authorize closure due to compliance.

 

I-LPG-2009-74        Inspection revealed failure to comply NFPA 58 requirements and a C card was issued.  R sent a written statement that R has taken the dispenser out of service and requested the license for the facility be voided.

 

I-LPG-2009-115     C alleged R is dispensing LPG and Rs license is expired. INV revealed failure to renew license was an oversight by R and R immediately renewed.  IBOL recommends the Board authorize closure due to compliance.
