02 NCAC 60B .1003          PERMITS

(a)  A permit authorizes an act only when that act conforms with the terms contained in the permit or in applicable rules, and conforms to existing state laws.

(b)  Any violation of the permit constitutes grounds for its revocation by the Department.  In case of revocation the permit holder shall forfeit to the Department all money for the permit.  Furthermore, the department shall consider the permit holder, together with his agents and employees who violated such terms, jointly and severally liable to the Department for all damages suffered in excess of money so forfeited.  However, neither the forfeiture of such money, nor the recovery of such damages, nor both, relieves such person from statutory punishment for any violation of a provision of any State Forest or Educational State Forest rule.

(c)  Applications for permits shall be made through the State Forest or Educational State Forest office during business hours and approved by the Forest Supervisor or his or her designee in advance of the act permitted.
