February 8 2012 Comments on Todays’s Commission Meeting







Time is short, but I would like anyone including the commissioners to show me any place in the promulgated rules, P

A 260 itself, the Randolph Shepard Program, the Rehab Act or in any manner where a building manager has any role in granting a license to operate any BEP facility.


I cite the following section from what was “approved today” to cite the fundamental violation of these laws in this regard:


“At the conclusion of the bid period, all qualified complete proposals will be reviewed by an interview panel consisting of Commission for the Blind staff, Elected Operator’s Committee representatives, and building management.  Interviews will be offered to the responsible person(s) submitting a qualified and complete proposal and will be conducted in Lansing by the same panel who reviewed the proposals.  The facility will be offered to the successful bidder based on the results of the face-to-face interviews and associated business plan.



None of the statutes or rules grant such an authority in the first place. MCB is the State Licensing Agency and not some building manager.
