provisions of this chapter apply to every addition to, or subdivision within, any county, municipality,
or unincorporated town. If the land or any part of the land included in any addition or subdivision
is within, adjoining, or contiguous to the boundaries of any municipality, the plat, before being
recorded, shall be submitted to the governing body or, if applicable, the planning director of the
municipality. If it appears that the system of streets set forth therein conforms to the system of streets
of the existing plats of the municipality, that all provisions of any subdivision regulations have been
complied with, that all taxes and special assessments upon the tract or subdivision have been fully
paid, and that such plat and the survey thereof have been executed according to law, the governing
body shall, by resolution, approve the plat. The governing body may by resolution designate an
administrative official of the municipality to approve plats in lieu of approval by the governing body.
The auditor or finance officer shall endorse on the face of the plat a copy of the resolution or the
designated administrative official's approval and certify to the same. No plat of any such addition
or subdivision so situated may be recorded unless the plat bears on its face a copy of the resolution
or approval and certificate of the auditor or finance officer. If the designated administrative official
denies the plat request, the person requesting the plat may appeal to the governing body.
