Relating to the creation of the Chambers County Municipal Utility
District No. 3; granting a limited power of eminent domain;
providing authority to issue bonds; providing authority to impose
assessments, fees, and taxes.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 4673 would amend the Special District Local Laws Code to create the Chambers County Municipal Utility District No. 3 and to establish the powers of the district.
Due to the limited local nature of this bill and the unique role municipal utility districts play in allowing development to take place in a way that makes the users of the service responsible for the cost of that development we are neutral on this legislation. We do recommend that MUDs be subject to sunset provisions so they do not operate in perpetuity.
