AN ACT TO EXPAND THE MEMBERSHIP OF CERTAIN METROPOLITAN SEWERAGE DISTRICTS, AND TO DIRECT THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE AND CONSUMER SERVICES TO STUDY WILDLIFE ENHANCEMENT, INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL, AND NATIVE HABITAT RESTORATION ON PROPERTIES MANAGED BY THE STATE.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Amends proposed GS 162A-68.5 to expand upon the items that the district board must send to the Environmental Management Commission (EMC) and the requesting county upon receiving a resolution to expand a metropolitan sewerage district to include the requesting county, by including among the items in the proposed extension of sewerage services an analysis of the inclusion of the territory in the district. Provides that after the public hearing, the EMC must determine that the inclusion of the territory will not adversely affect customer service in the district and will preserve and promote the public health and welfare of the district before adopting a resolution expanding and defining the boundaries of the district to include the territory in the district. Deletes the provision which required the district board to be expanded by up to one member if either of the two triggering effects occurred after the expansion of the district, concerning increase in customers of the requesting county or increase in the amount of untreated sewage in the requesting county. Makes additional clarifying and technical changes.
