(a) If the board conditionally approves a countywide or regional integrated waste management plan, or any element of the plan, the board shall issue a notice of conditional approval to the city, county, or regional agency which identifies the specific reasons for the conditional approval. The notice of conditional approval shall include specific recommendations on how to correct the remaining deficiencies in the plan or element.

(b) If the board disapproves a countywide or regional integrated waste management plan, or any element of the plan, the board shall issue a notice of deficiency to the city, county, or regional agency which identifies the specific reasons for the disapproval. The notice of deficiency shall include specific recommendations on how to correct the deficiencies in the plan or element.

(Amended by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1227, Sec. 16. Effective January 1, 1995.)

41810.1.
  

(a) Any city, county, or regional agency which receives a notice of conditional approval for a countywide or regional integrated waste management plan, or any element of the plan, pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 41810, shall, within 60 days from the date of receipt of the notice of conditional approval, submit a compliance schedule to the board that demonstrates how the city, county, or regional agency will correct the deficiencies identified in the notice of conditional approval by the earliest feasible date, but in no event shall that correction take longer to make than one year from the date of submission of the compliance schedule.

(b) The board shall approve or disapprove a compliance schedule submitted pursuant to subdivision (a) within 60 days from the date of its receipt of the schedule.

(c) If the board determines, based on substantial evidence in the record, that a city, county, or regional agency is not in compliance with a compliance schedule approved pursuant to subdivision (b), the board may revoke the notice of conditional approval, and shall issue a notice of deficiency pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 41810.

(d) It is the intent of the Legislature that a notice of conditional approval shall provide flexibility for a city, county, or regional agency to make substantial progress towards meeting the requirements of this part while ensuring full compliance with this part at the earliest feasible date.

(Added by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1227, Sec. 17. Effective January 1, 1995.)

41811.
  

Within 120 days of receipt of the notice of deficiency issued pursuant to Section 41810, the city or county shall correct the deficiencies, readopt, and resubmit the city source reduction and recycling element or the countywide integrated waste management plan to the board.

(Added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 1095, Sec. 22.)

41811.5.
  

(a) If the board disapproves an element for which a city, county, or regional agency has received a notification of excluded wastes pursuant to Section 41801.5, the city, county, or regional agency may, concurrent with the procedures specified in Section 41811, submit additional information to substantiate that the requirements of Section 41781.2 have been met. The additional information shall be submitted to the board within 60 days of disapproval of the element.

(b) Following the receipt of additional information pursuant to subdivision (a) the board shall determine, within 60 days, whether all, or a portion of, the excluded waste will be included in the source reduction and recycling element for purposes of calculating compliance with Section 41780.

(c) Based upon the board’s determination pursuant to subdivision (b), the city, county, or regional agency shall revise its source reduction and recycling element to correct any deficiencies resulting from the exclusion of wastes pursuant to Section 41781.2, and shall resubmit the element to the board. The element shall be resubmitted within 120 days of a board determination pursuant to subdivision (b). Notwithstanding Section 41811, if an element is disapproved pursuant to Section 41800, and the notice of deficiency issued pursuant to Section 41810 identifies reasons for disapproval, including, but not limited to, noncompliance with Section 41781.2, the city, county, or regional agency shall correct all deficiencies, and readopt and resubmit the element to the board pursuant to the requirements of this section.

(d) In revising the source reduction and recycling element to address deficiencies arising from noncompliance with Section 41781.2, a city, county, or regional agency may limit the revisions to an identification and description of the specific measures that will be undertaken to achieve compliance with Section 41780.

(e) If a city, county, or regional agency is unable to resubmit the source reduction and recycling element within 120 days, the board may, on a case-by-case basis, extend the deadline imposed by subdivision (c) for submittal of a revised element.

(Added by Stats. 1992, Ch. 1292, Sec. 41. Effective January 1, 1993.)

41812.
  

If the board determines that the revised city, county, or regional agency source reduction and recycling element or the countywide or regional agency integrated waste management plan submitted pursuant to Section 41811 or 41811.5 still fails to meet the requirements of this part, the board shall conduct a public hearing for the purpose of hearing testimony on the plan or element and the deficiencies identified by the board.

(Amended by Stats. 1992, Ch. 1292, Sec. 42. Effective January 1, 1993.)

41813.
  

(a) After conducting a public hearing pursuant to Section 41812, the board may impose administrative civil penalties of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) per day on any city or county, or, pursuant to Section 40974, on any city or county as a member of a regional agency, which fails to submit an adequate element or plan in accordance with the requirements of this chapter.

(b) The board shall not impose any penalty against a city or county pursuant to this section if the city or county is in substantial compliance with this part and if those aspects of a plan or element of a plan submitted by a city, county, or regional agency which is not in compliance with this part do not directly or substantially affect achievement of the diversion requirements of Section 41780.

(c) In determining whether a city, county, or regional agency is in substantial compliance, the board shall consider whether the city, county, or regional agency has made a good faith effort to implement all reasonable and feasible measures to comply.

(d) The board shall not use the money collected from the penalties imposed pursuant to subdivision (a) for administrative purposes. The board shall use the money collected from the penalties imposed pursuant to subdivision (a), to the extent possible, to assist local governments in meeting the requirements of this part.
