WHEREAS, only counties that have adopted a construction evaluation resolution can submit to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) an adopted recommendation to approve or disapprove a construction permit application regarding a proposed confinement feeding operation structure; and
WHEREAS, only counties that have adopted a construction evaluation resolution and submitted an adopted recommendation may contest the DNR’s decision regarding a specific application; and
WHEREAS, by adopting a construction evaluation resolution the Board of supervisors agrees to evaluate every construction permit application for a proposed confinement feeding operation structure received by the Board of Supervisors between February 1, 2010 and January 31, 2011 and submit an adopted recommendation regarding that application to the DNR; and
WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors must conduct an evaluation of every construction permit application using the master matrix created in Iowa Code section 459.305, but the board’s recommendation to the DNR may be based on the final score on the master matrix or may be based on reasons other than the final score on the master matrix;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF
SUPERVISORS OF CARROLL COUNTY that the Board of Supervisors hereby adopts
this construction evaluation resolution pursuant to Iowa Code section
