394.32 COOPERATION WITH MUNICIPALITIES.
    Subdivision 1. By contract; fees. The governing body of any municipality may contract
with the board for planning and zoning services to be provided by the county, and the contract
may provide that the municipality shall pay such fees as are agreed for the services performed.
    Subd. 2. Joint planning. The contract between the governing body of the municipality and
the board may provide among other things for joint county-municipal planning activities, or it
may designate the board as the planning agency for the municipality.
    Subd. 3. Comprehensive plan; control enforcement. The governing body of any
municipality may request a county board to submit to such governing body a comprehensive
plan for the municipality setting forth such provisions as the board deems applicable to the
municipality and for its best interests, or to include the area within the municipality in a
countywide comprehensive plan, or to prepare official controls to apply to the area within the
municipality. Notwithstanding the adoption of the comprehensive plan and recommendations for
the municipality the plan and recommendations shall not be binding until official controls are
adopted by the municipality in accordance with the plan or until the county adopts official controls
for the areas within the incorporated limits of the municipality when requested by the governing
body of the municipality. After the county adopts official controls for areas within a municipality,
the county shall enforce the controls unless the county and municipality provided otherwise
by agreement. A municipality may at any time, by resolution of its governing body, take over
planning functions, including adoption and enforcement of official controls, with respect to areas
within its corporate limits for which a county has adopted official controls.
