Such notice will be issued in the name of the state and will be signed by the Board or its secretary. The notice will specify the title and docket and cause numbers of the proceeding, the time and place of hearing and whether the case is set for hearing before the Board or its designated hearing examiner. The notice will briefly state the purpose of the proceeding and general nature of the order, rule, or regulation to be promulgated or effected. The notice will also state the name(s) of the petitioner and respondent, if any, and, unless the order, rule, or regulation is intended to apply to and affect the entire state, the notice will specify the land or resource affected by such order, rule, or regulation. In addition to published notice, the Board will give notice by mail to all parties. Such notice will be given by the 1st day of the month in which the hearing is held, but in no event less than fifteen days before the hearing.

Persons otherwise entitled to personal service under these rules may be served by publication or mail in accordance with Rule 4(f) of the Utah Rules of Civil Procedure.
