   Resolution and Order Approving the Application of Brown County, 
Wisconsin; for a Foreign-Trade Zone in the Green Bay, Wisconsin Area; 
Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC; Resolution 
and Order  
 
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board (the Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
   After consideration of the application of Brown County, Wisconsin, filed 
with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board on April 14, 1989, requesting a grant of 
authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-purpose 
foreign-trade zone in Brown County, Wisconsin, within the Green Bay Customs 
port of entry, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
the proposal is in the public interest, approves the application except for 
that part of proposed Parcel C, which is located outside the boundary of 
the Village of Ashwaubenon (designated C-2 in examiners report). 
 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to @ 400.815 of 
the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone proposal, 
providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall have the 
concurrences of the District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army District 
Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. Further, 
the grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement 
of any manufacturing operation within the zone. The Secretary of Commerce, 
a Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby authorized to 
issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order.  
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade 
zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage 
foreign commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating,
and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under 
the jurisdiction of the United States;  
 
   Whereas, Brown County, Wisconsin (the Grantee), has made application 
(filed April 14, 1989, FTZ Docket 7-89, 54 FR 17801, 4/25/89) in due and 
proper form to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation, and 
maintenance of a foreign-trade zone in Brown County, Wisconsin, within the 
Green Bay Customs port of entry; 
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and 
the Board's regulations are satisfied; 
 
   Now therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated 
on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Zone No. 167, at the location 
mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps and drawings 
accompanying the application in Exhibits IX and X (with the exception of 
Site C-2), subject to the provisions, conditions, and restrictions of the 
Act and the Regulations issued thereunder, to the same extent as though the 
same were fully set forth herein, and also the following express conditions 
and limitations:  
 
   Operation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior 
thereto, any necessary permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and 
municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone site in 
the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and 
the Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement 
of any manufacturing operations within the zone. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event shall
the United States be liable therefor. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the District Army Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the protection 
of the revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable 
facilities.  
 
   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zone Board has caused its name to 
be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and Executive 
Officer at Washington, DC, this 23rd day of August, 1990, pursuant to Order 
of the Board. 
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
