(B) The Board of Commissioners referred to as the responsible person, is appointed as the person responsible for receiving applications and examining the plans and specifications for the proposed construction or development. After reviewing the application, the responsible person shall require any additional measures which are necessary to meet the minimum requirements of this document.
(C) The responsible person shall review proposed development to assure that all necessary permits have been received from those governmental agencies from which approval is required by federal or state law, including Section 404 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972, 33 USC 1334.
(D) The responsible person shall review all permit applications to determine whether proposed building sites will be reasonably safe from flooding. If a proposed building site is in a floodprone area, all new construction and substantial improvements (including the placement of prefabricated buildings and mobile homes) shall: (1) be designed (or modified) and adequately anchored to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement of the structure, (2) be constructed with materials and utility equipment resistant to flood damage and (3) be constructed by methods and practices that minimize flood damage.
(E) The responsible person shall review subdivision proposals and other proposed new development to determine whether such proposals will be reasonably safe from flooding. If a subdivision proposal or other proposed new development is in a flood-prone area, any such proposals shall be reviewed to assure that all such proposals are consistent with the need to minimize flood damage within the flood-prone area; all public utilities and facilities, such as sewer, gas, electrical and water systems are located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage; and adequate drainage is provided to reduce exposure to flood hazards.
