(1) Require a public notice to be published in a paper of general circulation in the county in which the source or facility proposes to operate notifying the citizens that an application for a permit has been received and providing the public with an opportunity to request a public hearing and submit public comment. All such notices shall include a brief description of the proposed activity. Responsibility for publishing such notice shall rest with the applicant;
(2) Transmit to the administrator a copy of the application or such portion thereof as the administrator may require to review the application and to carry out the administrator's responsibility under the federal act; and

The director shall provide an opportunity for such states to submit written recommendations respecting the issuance of the permit and its terms and conditions. If any part of those recommendations are not accepted by the director, the director shall notify the state submitting the recommendations and the administrator in writing of the director's reasons for not accepting those recommendations.
(b) In the event of a modification, amendment, suspension, or a revocation of a permit, the director shall serve written notice of such action on the permit holder and shall set forth in such notice the reasons for the action.
