The order shall be served at least ten days before the hearing unless otherwise ordered. The order shall include a notice of the time and place of the hearing. The order shall require the person complained of to appear at the time and place fixed in the notice and to show cause why the proposed action may not be taken. The order shall refer to an attached copy of a verified complaint or other notice, affidavit, or official document in a way as to inform the party of the charge or violation upon which the order is based and issued. At the hearing, the commission staff or complainant shall present evidence of the alleged violation. The telecommunications company shall then be allowed an opportunity to respond to the evidence.
After the hearing, the commission shall enter its decision either dismissing the complaint or entering an order directing the action specified in the order to show cause.
