Current Bill Summary

HCS/SB 218 - Under this act, when a regional recreational district is organized in only one county on land solely owned by the county, the governing body of the county shall have the exclusive control of the expenditures of money in the regional recreational fund. It shall also have control of the public parks, trails, and recreational facilities owned, maintained or managed by the county within the district.

This act allows each director of a Community Improvement District Board to be: 1) an owner of real property within the district; 2) a legally authorized representative of a property owner if there are less than five real property owners within the district; or 3) a registered voter within the district. Currently, only Springfield allows a legally authorized representative of a property owner to be a director.

This act is similar to CCS/SB 223 (2007), HB 361 (2007), HCS/HB 919 (2007), SS/SCS/HB 69 (2007), CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 22 (2007), HB 1883 (2007) & HB 1178 (2007).
