Current Bill Summary

SB 1039 - Under this act, St. Louis County shall establish a procedure before July 1, 2021, to determine whether any reclamation or remediation of a historic landfill has been accomplished safely before issuing any land use permit for the property. The procedure shall be developed with input from residents and stakeholders and shall ensure that the health of any resident near the historic landfill is the primary concern. The development of the procedure shall include public hearings and meetings to include public comments.

Additionally, the county shall hold public hearings and meetings before issuing any land use permit. Residents shall be allowed to testify at such hearings. Before issuing a land use permit, the county shall then determine whether to conduct additional site testing for contaminants beyond any other required site testing. If additional testing is necessary and the county determines that any reclamation or remediation was inadequate, the county shall not issue a land use permit until such reclamation or remediation is adequately completed.
