    Subdivision 1. County ordinance failing to meet standards. The commissioner shall adapt
the model ordinance to a county if, after notice and hearing as provided in section 103G.311, the
commissioner finds that a county has failed to adopt a shoreland conservation ordinance or that a
county has adopted a shoreland conservation ordinance that fails to meet the minimum standards
established under section 103F.211.
    Subd. 2. Hearing. The commissioner shall hold at least one public hearing on the proposed
ordinance in the manner provided in section 394.26, after giving notice as provided in section
394.26. The ordinance is effective for the county on the date and in accordance with any rules
the commissioner prescribes, by order, relating to compliance.
    Subd. 3. Enforcement. The ordinance must be enforced as provided in section 394.37. The
penalties provided in section 394.37 apply to violations of the commissioner's model ordinance
for the county.
    Subd. 4. Commissioner's costs. The cost incurred by the commissioner in adapting the
model ordinance to a county under this section must be paid by the county after the commissioner
submits an itemized statement of the costs to the county. If the county fails to pay the costs within
90 days after the commissioner's statement is received, the commissioner may file a copy of the
statement of the costs for collection by special tax levy with the county auditor. The county
auditor, upon receiving a statement from the commissioner, shall include the amount of the
state's claim in the tax levy for general revenue purposes of the county. On completion of the tax
settlement following this levy, the county treasurer must pay the amount due to the state to the
commissioner for deposit in the state treasury.
