fee within 30 days after the end of each reporting period, the commissioner shall assess a
penalty of $100 or eight percent, calculated on an annual basis, of the fee due, whichever
is greater, but no more than $500 for each late semiannual report. A $15 penalty must be
charged when the semiannual report is late, even if no fee is due for the reporting period.
Seed fee permits may be revoked for failure to comply with the applicable provisions of
this paragraph or the Minnesota seed law.

and brush open burning sites must submit for a permit within 90 days of the passage of
this statute for a burning permit. New site applications must be submitted at least 90
days before the date of the proposed operation of the permanent open burning site. The
application must be submitted to the commissioner and must contain:

(1) the name, address, and telephone number of all owners of the site proposed for
use as the permanent open burning site;

(2) if the operator for the proposed permanent open burning site is different from the
owner, the name, address, and telephone number of the operator;

(3) a general description of the materials to be burned, including the source and
estimated quantity, dimensions of the site and burn pile areas, hours and dates of operation,
and provisions for smoke management; and

(4) a topographic or similarly detailed map of the site and surrounding area within
a one-mile circumference showing all structures that might be affected by the operation
of the site.

Only trees, tree trimmings, or brush that cannot be disposed of by an alternative
method such as chipping, composting, or other method shall be permitted to be burned
at a permanent open burning site. A permanent tree and brush open burning site must
be located and operated so as not to create a nuisance or endanger water quality. The
commissioner shall revoke the permit or order actions to mitigate threats to public health,
safety, and the environment in the event that permit conditions are violated.
