The title of this Part 2 shall be "Nonmetallic Mining Reclamation Ordinance for the Village of Hobart."
The purpose of this Part 2 is to establish a local program to ensure the effective reclamation of nonmetallic mining sites on which nonmetallic mining takes place in the Village of Hobart after the effective date of this Part 2, in compliance with Chapter NR 135, Wisconsin Administrative Code, and Subchapter I of Chapter 295, Wisconsin Statutes.
This Part 2 is adopted under authority of § 295.14(1), Wis. Stats., § NR 135.32, Wisconsin Administrative Code, and § 61.34(1), Wis. Stats.
The purpose of this Part 2 is to adopt and implement the uniform statewide standards for nonmetallic mining required by § 295.12(1)(a), Wis.

Where any terms or requirements of this Part 2 may be inconsistent or conflicting, the more restrictive requirements or interpretation shall apply. Where a provision of this Part 2 is required by Wisconsin Statutes, or by a standard in Chapter NR 135, Wisconsin Administrative Code, and where the provision is unclear, the provision shall be interpreted to be consistent with the Wisconsin Statutes and the provisions of Chapter NR 135, Wisconsin Administrative Code.[1]
