    Except when other notice is required by law, the state, or 
any of its political subdivisions, shall give any affected town, 
statutory or home rule charter city, and county 30 days prior 
written notice of any action by the state or political 
subdivision that will directly affect the use of land in the 
town, statutory or home rule charter city, or county relating to 
sanitary landfills, waste disposal sites, construction of new

plans prepared pursuant to section 86A.09 shall be considered 
adequate notice as required by this section.  Failure to give 
any notice required by this section shall not be grounds for a

or for the challenge or invalidation of any action taken by the 
state, a political subdivision or any other party.
