Current Bill Summary

HCS/SCS/SB 218 - This act provides that a municipality may impose a fee of up to $50 per year for the repair of lateral sewer lines on or connecting residential property having six or less dwelling units. Any political subdivision that establishes or increases the fee used to repair any portion of the lateral sewer service line shall include all defective portions of the lateral sewer service line from the residential structure to its connection with the public sewer system line. Condominiums that have six or less condominium units per building are subject to the $50 fee, each unit shall be responsible for its proportionate share of any fee charged. If a condominium unit is served by its own lateral sewer line, it shall be treated as an individual residence. The condominium owner or condominium association who believe they are not properly classified as provided in this section shall have the responsibility to notify the county office administering the program. If an existing sewer lateral program was in effect prior to the effective date of this act, condominium and apartment units not previously enrolled may be ineligible for enrollment if it is determined that the sewer lateral serving the unit is defective.

The act sets forth a guideline for the drafting of the proposition to be put before the voters.
