Operation of type B agencies

(1) A local government shall be responsible for all actions of a type B area agency in its jurisdiction, including but not limited to the accountability for funds and compliance with federal and state laws and rules. Such responsibility shall include all geographic areas in which the type B area agency is designated to operate.

(2) The respective local government shall appoint a director of the type B area agency in its jurisdiction who must meet minimum qualifications established by the Department of Human Services. The director shall serve with the continuing approval of the Director of Human Services. Continuing approval may be withdrawn by the Director of Human Services only when it can be shown that the state or federal rules have not been complied with by the type B area agency, that state or federal funds are not being expended for the purposes for which they were intended or that elderly persons are not receiving appropriate services within available funds. Withdrawal of continuing approval is appealable to the Governor by the local government after requesting a reconsideration by the Director of Human Services.
