Sec. 14D-05-20. Dispute resolution.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, no action shall be maintained under this chapter alleging that an agricultural or agricultural processing operation has interfered with private property or personal well-being or is otherwise considered a nuisance unless the plaintiff has sought to obtain a decision pursuant to the agricultural grievance procedure provided in Article 6 (Resolution of Disputes) or a decision has been sought but no decision is rendered within the time limits provided in said section. This subsection shall not prevent any party or person from proceeding or bringing a legal action under the provisions of other applicable laws without first resorting to this grievance procedure. (Ord. No. 1364, Exh. 1 (part).)
