Changes the short title.
Current subsection (a1) of GS 160A-314 allows a city to establish and revise from time to time schedules of rents, rates, fees, charges, and penalties for the use of or the services furnished by any public enterprise. Current subdivision (4) authorizes a city to adopt an ordinance providing that a fee imposed under subsection (a1) may be billed as property taxes, made payable in the same manner as property taxes, and collected in any manner in which delinquent personal and real property taxes may be collected. Further, the statute allows delinquent fees to place a lien on the real property described on the bill that includes the fee if the ordinance states that delinquent fees can be collected in the same manner as delinquent real property taxes. This act adds the Towns of Fairmont, La Grange, and Proctorville to the cities and towns specifically authorized to act pursuant to subdivision (4) of GS 160A-314(a1).
