A petition for an administrative hearing is deemed filed upon receipt of the complete petition by
the District Clerk at the District Headquarters in Palatka, Florida during the District’s regular
business hours. The District's regular business hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., excluding weekends
and District holidays. Petitions received by the District Clerk after the District's regular business
hours shall be deemed filed as of 8 a.m. on the District’s next regular business day. The

The right to an administrative hearing and the relevant procedures to be followed are governed
by Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Chapter 28-106, Florida Administrative Code, and Rule 40C-
1.1007, Florida Administrative Code. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means the District's final action may be
different from the position taken by it in this notice. Failure to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within the requisite time frame shall constitute a waiver of the
right to an administrative hearing. (Rule 28-106.111, F.A.C.).
