Voter Empowerment Initiative Becomes Law
on Tuesday, August 02, 2016
“It is important to eliminate unnecessary aspects of government, and give the voters the power to do so,” said Andersson. “I have found some of the existing water authorities to be inactive, and there is no reason to have them. Yet, before this bill became law there was no way to legally dissolve them. This puts the decision in voters’ hands, and allows residents to make the right call for their community.”
The dissolution of a water authority would be by referendum, and any money available after said dissolution would be given to the townships and counties in the area.
House Bill 4371 became effective after it was signed into law on July 29th, 2016.
