HB 713 - The notice requirements for annexation by a public water supply district are modified as follows:

(1) Publication of the proposed annexation will not be required if a majority of the landowners in the territory proposed to be annexed by the water district consent in writing to the annexation, and

(2) Notice of the public hearing is posted in three public places within the territory proposed to be annexed at least seven days before the hearing.

If publication of the notice of annexation is not required pursuant to this act, the court will only approve the annexation upon sworn testimony by at least five landowners in the territory, or by a majority of the landowners if there are fewer than ten landowners in the territory.

The county commission may delegate and assign responsibility for the control and operation of a sewer district to the board of trustees of the sewer district, subject to the board's acceptance of the delegation.
