SB 881 - This act modifies various provisions relating to political subdivisions.
SECTIONS 115.305, 115.342, and 115.346
Candidates for public office cannot be in arrears for unpaid city taxes or municipal user fees. Upon receiving a complaint that a candidate is delinquent in payment, the department of revenue shall notify the candidate, who shall have 30 days to pay the amount owed before being disqualified.
Persons contracting to provide professional services for a fire protection district shall not receive compensation after termination of the contract by the governing body of such political subdivision, except for services actually rendered.
This section states that any fire protection district director who is found guilty of or pleads guilty to a felony shall immediately forfeit such office.
Currently, the number of signatures required on a petition to have an election to recall a fire protection district board member is at least 25% of the number of voters who voted in the most recent gubernatorial election in that district. This act changes the number of signatures needed to 20%.
This act is identical to HB 1739 (2010).
