Current Bill Summary

SB 70 - Under current law, the board of trustees of any reorganized common sewer district may petition a circuit court for an amended decree of incorporation to allow the district to operate water supply and distribution facilities that serve 10 or more separate properties in the district and that are not served by another political subdivision or located within the certificated area of a water corporation. This act now states that a sewer district may petition a circuit court to operate water supply and distribution facilities in an area not served by another political subdivision within the certificated area of a water corporation.

This act allows the board of trustees of a reorganized common sewer district and the board of directors of a public water supply district to jointly petition a circuit court to amend the decrees of incorporation to allow the districts to consolidate the water supply district into the reorganized common sewer district.

This act is similar to a provision contained in SB 975 (2020).
