  • Summary date: May 15 2014 - More information

    Bill filed is identical to H1033.

    Authorizes Richmond County to create a fee-supported dam repair district, by resolution, for properties contiguous to a lake with a dam that needs repairs.  Allows the county to impose an annual fee for dam repairs; fee must be established on or before July 1 of each year. Provides limitations on fees imposed, including that fees cannot exceed the cost of dam repairs and fees can only be imposed on owners of dwellings or parcels that could or do benefit from lake access.

    Directs the county to adopt procedures similar to those in GS Chapter 153A, Article 9, for special assessments.  Outlines procedures for the billing of fees and provides that fees collected must be deposited in a separate fund used only to pay for costs incurred for dam repairs.

    Allows the fee-supported district to be abolished when there is no longer a need for the fee-supported district.

    Applies only to Richmond County.
