Publication of Amended Ordinance

On May 19, 2009 the Goodhue County B9ard of Commissioners made the following amendments to the Goodhue County zoning Ordinance:

Article 30: shoreland Regulations, section 12: Sanitary Regulations, Subdivision 7F; "Sub-Surface Sewage Treatment Systems (SSTS) within the shoreland District shall be inspected for compliance with Section 12 of this Article as part of all variance, conditional use, and building permit applications. A site map showing the location of the SSTS may be required to verify its location relative to the District. Final determination as to whether an SSTS is located within the shoreland Area will be made by the Zoning Administrator. As specified in Minnesota Rules 7082.0700 (Inspection Program for Subsurface sewage Treatment Systems): Certificates of compliance for new construction or a replacement system remain valid for five years from the date of issuance unless the County finds evidence of noncompliance. in addition, the certificate of compliance is valid for three years from the date of issuance, even if one of the supporting reports expires before the three-year period, unless an inspector finds evidence of noncompliance."

The complete ordinance is available for viewing on our website at or in the Land use Management office located at 509 west Fifth street, Red Wing, MN.
