The purpose of this section is to exempt the city platting rules and regulations from the following situations. However, the exemption of city platting rules and regulations does not exempt the platting requirements of the register of deeds, title company and state law.
   (a)   Cemetery gravesite plats.
      (1)   Cemetery gravesite plats or plots do not have to meet any requirements of this subdivision ordinance as long as land is surveyed, mapped or diagramed and subdivided into sections, blocks, lots, individual grave spaces, avenues, walks and streets, thereby platting or making a map which shall be filed and maintained as a permanent cemetery record.
      (2)   However, all platting requirements of the county register of deeds and state law are still applicable.
   (b)   Government-owned parcels. In order to facilitate the transfer of ownership from one owner to a government entity for the use of a public land or facility (e.g., school, park, drainageway, H lots), city platting rules may be exempted by the city engineer and city director of planning and development services.
   (c)   Add-on agreement of existing lots or tracts.
      (1)   The purpose of an add-on agreement is to allow existing contiguous legal lots, tracts, and plats to be recognized as one parcel for building code and zoning regulations when the contiguous legal lots, tracts, parcels, and plats are owned by the same landowner.
      (2)   An add-on agreement must not place any existing or planned buildings in violation of zoning regulations or building codes.
      (3)   An add-on agreement will be recognized by the city planning and development services office after tax parcels stated therein have been combined by the county equalization office. The combined parcel known as the new lot of record shall include the recorded legal descriptions.
