For one year after the effective date of this ordinance, or until such earlier time as the Franklin Township Board determines by resolution that the reasons for the moratorium no longer exist, no Solar Arrays shall be established within Franklin Township. This temporary prohibition shall not apply to any Solar Arrays for which complete zoning applications have been received by Wright County prior to the effective date of this ordinance.
Section 5. Misdemeanor. Any person, persons, firm or corporation violating any provisions of this ordinance shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished pursuant to Minn. Stat. 609.02, Subd. 3, or as subsequently amended, plus costs of prosecution.
