    NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT on August 23, 2007, the Board of Opticianry has issued an order.

    The Board of Opticianry hereby gives notice of the issuance of an Order regarding the Joint Petition for Variance or Waiver for Jay Cohen and Dori A. Valenti-Cohen. The Notice of Joint Petition for Variance or Waiver was published in Vol. 33, No. 29, of the July 20, 2007, FA.W. The Board considered the Joint Petition at a duly-noticed public meeting held on August 6, 2007.

    The Board’s Order, filed on August 23, 2007, denies the Joint Petition for Variance or Waiver of Rule 64B12-9.016, Florida Administrative Code. The Board finds that the Petitioners have not established that the purpose of the underlying statute, Section 484.007(1)(d), (2), Florida Statutes, would be met were they granted a variance or waiver from Rule 64B12-9.016, Florida Administrative Code. Further, the Petitioners failed to establish that the Board’s application of Rule 64B12-9.016, Florida Administrative Code, to their specific circumstances would violate the principles of fairness and would impose an substantial hardship on them. The Board finds that three years beyond the time allowed for by rule is too long.

    A copy of the Order may be obtained by contacting: Sue Foster, Executive Director, Board of Opticianry, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #C08, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3258.
