BILL SUMMARY for HB16-1272



SENATE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer House Bill 16-1272 to the Committee of the W PASS







03:25 PM -- HB 16-1272



Senator Tate, prime sponsor, described the provisions of House Bill 16-1272 concerning the disconnection of land from a municipality. The reengrossed bill requires that a governing board that receives a disconnection application notify the board of county commissioners of the affected county that an application has been received and if requested by the board of county commissioners, meet with the board to discuss any negative impacts to the county that would result from the disconnection. Once a municipality receives an application to disconnect, the governing board must enact an ordinance to disconnect if the governing board finds that: the best interests of the municipality will not be negatively impacted by the disconnection; the tract of land contains in the aggregate an area of 20 or more acres and is located on or adjacent to the border of the municipality; no part of the land has been duly platted into lots and blocks as part of or addition to the municipality; all taxes and liens on the property have been paid as of the filing date of the application; and the board of county commissioners of the affected county has been notified and any negative impacts resulting from the disconnection have been addressed.



The following persons testified on the bill:



03:27 PM --
