IA Board suspends license of Council Bluffs cosmetologist


July 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Board of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences has suspended indefinitely, the license of a Pottawattamie County woman. The Board’s decision in May went into effect June 24th. Melissa Huerta Mendoza, of 2800 Margaret Avenue in Council Bluffs, was ordered to surrender her original license to the Board, after she failed to contest the matter at a hearing. The penalty was the result of Mendoza’s failure to comply with an order issued by the Iowa Department of Revenue’s Centralized Collection Unit.
