(2) Failure to submit the renewal application and fee within 30 days after the expiration of the license shall result in an assessment of a late renewal fee pursuant to K.S.A. 65-505, and amendments thereto, and may result in closure of the facility.
(f) Exceptions. Any applicant, permittee, or licensee may request an exception to a specific facility regulation or any portion of a specific facility regulation. Each request shall be submitted to the secretary on a form provided by the department. A copy of each request shall be provided to the Kansas department for children and families and the office of the Kansas attorney general.
(1) A request for an exception may be granted if the secretary determines that the exception is not detrimental to the health, safety, and welfare of one or more residents or the family of a resident and the exception does not violate statutory requirements.
(2) Written notice from the secretary stating the nature of each exception and its duration shall be kept on file at the facility and shall be readily accessible to the department and the Kansas department for children and families.
(g) Amendments. Any licensee may submit a written request for an amended license.
(1) Each licensee who intends to change the terms of the license, including the maximum number, the age range, or the gender of residents to be served, shall submit a request for an amendment on a form provided by the department and a nonrefundable amendment fee of $35. An amendment fee shall not be required if the request to change the terms of the license is made at the time of license renewal.
(2) Each request for a change in the maximum number, the age range, or the gender of residents to be served shall include written documentation of the notification to the school district where the facility is located, as specified in K.A.R. 28-4-1251(f).
(3) The licensee shall make no change to the terms of the license, including the maximum number of residents, the age range of residents to be served, the gender of residents, and the type of license, unless an amendment has been granted, in writing, by the secretary.
(h) Closure. Any applicant or permittee may withdraw the application for a license. Any licensee may submit, at any time, a request to close the facility operated by the licensee. If an application is withdrawn or a facility is closed, the current temporary permit or license granted to the permittee or licensee for that facility shall become void.
