Relating to the board of directors of the Agua Special Utility District.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

This is a local bill. SB 814 would add certain procedures and requirements regarding the election of directors for the Agua Special Utility District. It would stipulate that one director must be elected by the voters of the City of La Joya to represent that city. The board may not employ as an employee, as a consultant, or a contractor: an elected official of the largest public employer in the service area of the district; or a person related to an elected official within the third degree by consanguinity or affinity.

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 814 does not appear to have a connection to our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
