No wrecking and salvage yard shall be operated, maintained or established in any area or location unless one of the following conditions are met:
(a) Such area or location is zoned in such a manner as to allow the operation, maintenance and establishment of a wrecking and salvage yard and, if required by the applicable zoning provision, a use permit has been obtained.
(b) A permit for the operation, maintenance and establishment of a wrecking and salvage yard is obtained from the Planning Commission of the County of Humboldt. There shall be a Twenty Dollar ($20.00) fee for filing of such application. Notice of said application and hearing shall be published at least ten (10) days before the hearing date in a newspaper of general circulation. The application may be granted if the Planning Commission determines that such action will not be detrimental to neighboring property. The action of the Planning Commission shall not become final for thirty (30) days, and within such period of time appeal may be made to the Board of Supervisors. In the event of appeal, the Board of Supervisors shall hold a hearing on the matter and notice thereof shall be given in the same manner as in the case of the hearing before the Planning Commission. In the event of an appeal, the decision of the Board of Supervisors shall be final and conclusive. The permit procedure provided for herein shall not be applicable in the event that the area or location proposed for a wrecking and salvage yard has already been zoned in such manner as to preclude the operation, maintenance or establishment or wrecking and salvage yards.
