             703          Section 28. Section 17-34-5 is amended to read:
             704           17-34-5. Budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds -- Annual audit.
             705          (1) (a) With respect to the budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds to furnish
             706      the municipal-type services and functions described in Section 17-34-1 to areas of the county
             707      outside the limits of incorporated towns and cities, including levying of taxes and imposition of
             708      fees and charges under Section 17-34-3 , each county legislative body shall separately budget
             709      and strictly account for and apportion to the costs of providing municipal-type services and
             710      functions the following:
             711          (i) the salaries of each county commissioner and the salaries and wages of all other
             712      elected and appointed county officials and employees;
             713          (ii) the operation and maintenance costs of each municipal-type service or function
             714      provided, set forth separately as line items in the Municipal Services Fund budget;
             715          (iii) the cost of renting or otherwise using capital facilities for the purposes of
             716      providing municipal-type services or functions; and
             717          (iv) all other costs including[, but not limited to,] administrative costs associated,
             718      directly or indirectly, with the costs of providing municipal-type services or functions.
             719          (b) At all times these funds and any expenditures from these funds shall be separately
             720      accounted for and utilized only for the purposes of providing municipal-type services and
             721      functions to areas of the county outside the limits of incorporated towns or cities.
             722          (2) To implement Subsection (1):
             723          (a) a budget shall be adopted and administered in the same manner as the budget for
             724      general purposes of the county which furnishes the municipal-type services and functions is
             725      adopted and administered, either as a part of the general budget or separate from it;
             726          (b) funds for the purposes of furnishing municipal-type services and functions under
             727      this chapter shall be collected, held, and administered in the same manner as other funds of the
             728      county are collected, held, and administered, but shall be segregated and separately maintained,
             729      except that where, in the judgment of the county legislative body, advantages inure to the fund


             730      from coinvestment of these funds and other funds also subject to control by the county
             731      legislative body, the county legislative body may direct this coinvestment, but in no event may
             732      the funds to furnish municipal-type services and functions or the income from their investment
             733      be used for purposes other than those described in Section 17-34-1 ;
             734          (c) expenditures shall be made in the same manner as other expenditures of the county
             735      are made; and
             736          (d) any taxes levied under this chapter shall be levied at the same time and in the same
             737      manner as other taxes of the county are levied.
             738          (3) An annual audit of the budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds used to
             739      furnish municipal-type services and functions, shall be conducted by an independent certified
             740      public accountant.
             741          Section 29. Section 17-35b-303 is amended to read:
             742           17-35b-303. Community council form of county government.
             743          (1) The structural form of county government known as the "community council" form
             744      unites in a single consolidated city and county government the powers, duties, and functions
             745      which, immediately prior to its effective date, are vested in the county, the largest city in the
             746      county, such other cities and towns as elect to merge in it, and all special taxing districts, public
             747      authorities, service areas, and other local public entities functioning within the boundaries of
             748      the county, except school districts. The consolidated government shall have power to extend on
             749      a countywide basis any governmental service or function which is authorized by law or which
             750      the previous county, cities, and other local public agencies included therein were empowered to
             751      provide for their residents, but no such service shall be provided within an incorporated
             752      municipality which continues to provide that service for its own inhabitants, except upon a
             753      contract basis for the municipality, and no taxes, assessments, fees, or other charges shall be
             754      extended or collected within the municipality for the purpose of financing any service which is
             755      not provided by the consolidated government within the municipality. "Largest city," as used in
             756      this section, means a city or cities the population of which, as shown by the most recent
             757      decennial or special census, exceeds 35% of the total county population.


             758          (2) The incorporated cities and towns, other than the largest city, in the county shall
             759      retain independent corporate existence and shall continue to provide local services to their
             760      inhabitants of the type and to the extent provided in the plan, but any such city or town, by
             761      majority vote of its qualified voters, cast either concurrently with the election at which the plan
             762      is approved or subsequently to it, as provided by the governing body of the city or town, may
             763      cause the city or town to be dissolved and its powers, duties, and functions vested in the
             764      countywide government.
             765          (3) The county legislative body of the countywide government shall be a council
             766      composed of not less than five persons as specified in the plan, elected respectively from
             767      communities, which collectively include all of the territory within the county, having
             768      boundaries described in the plan embracing substantially equal populations. In addition to
             769      other powers vested in the countywide government by law or pursuant to this act, the county
             770      council shall have all of the legislative and policymaking powers which it is possible for the
             771      governing body of a county or a city to possess and which are not expressly denied by the
             772      constitution, by a general law applicable to all cities or all counties, or by a specific restriction
             773      in the plan itself.
             774          (4) The voters of each community shall elect a community council composed of the
             775      community's elected member of the county council, who shall be chairman of the community
             776      council, and not less than two nor more than four additional members elected either from
             777      districts of substantially equal population within the community, or at large therein, as may be
             778      provided in the plan. A community council shall have the power and duty, in conformity with
             779      guidelines prescribed by the county council, to adopt policies and formulate specific programs
             780      relating to and defining the kinds and levels of local governmental services necessary to satisfy
             781      the needs and desires of the citizens within the community, but a community council shall have
             782      no power to engage personnel or to acquire facilities, property, or equipment for the
             783      administration or performance of such services. Authorized programs for local governmental
             784      services which have been approved by a community council shall be submitted to the county
             785      council for implementation and shall be carried into effect by the county council and county


             786      executive unless, by a vote of not less than 3/4 of its entire membership, the county council
             787      determines that a particular program, in whole or in part, should be rejected as contrary to the
             788      general welfare of the county. A community council program for local governmental services
             789      within a community:
             790          (a) shall include a method or methods for financing such services;
             791          (b) may provide for supplying of such services by contract or by joint or cooperative
             792      action pursuant to Title 11, Chapter 13, Interlocal Cooperation Act, in which case the
             793      community council shall be considered a "public agency" within the meaning of said act; and
             794          (c) may provide for supplying of such services through the creation of service areas
             795      pursuant to Title 17B, Chapter 2a, Part 9, Service Area Act.
             796          (5) Notwithstanding Subsection (4), in any community which includes, in whole or in
             797      part, the territory of a city or town, no community council program for local government
             798      services above the minimum level of area-wide services provided countywide may be
             799      submitted to the county council for implementation unless it first is submitted to the governing
             800      body of each such city or town for review. Within 30 days after such submission, the governing
             801      body of the city or town:
             802          (a) may file with the community council a written statement of its comments,
             803      suggestions, and recommendations relating to the program, and the community council shall
             804      give due consideration thereto; or
             805          (b) may, by resolution or ordinance, provide that any designated part of the community
             806      council program relating to a service to be provided within the city or town shall be submitted
             807      to the voters thereof at a general or special election to be held therein within 60 days after the
             808      date of the resolution or ordinance. Any part of the program submitted to the voters of a city or
             809      town under this Subsection (5) [shall not] may not be included in the program as submitted to
             810      the county council unless it receives an approving vote at such election by majority of all votes
             811      cast on the question.
             812          (6) Except as provided herein, the qualifications, mode of election, term of office,
             813      method of removal, procedure to fill vacancies, compensation, and other appropriate provisions


             814      relating to membership on the county council or community councils shall be provided in the
             815      plan.
             816          (7) Upon the effective date of the plan and as provided in it, all properties and assets,
             817      whether tangible or intangible, and all obligations, debts, and liabilities, of those governmental
             818      entities which are merged into the new countywide government shall become vested and
             819      transferred by operation of law in and to the new countywide government. The properties,
             820      assets, obligations, debts, and liabilities of any city or town not merged into the new
             821      countywide government, so far as allocated, used, or incurred primarily to discharge a function
             822      which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of the city or town, shall likewise be
             823      vested in and transferred to the new countywide government. All transfers under this
             824      Subsection (7) shall be subject to equitable adjustments, conditions, and limitations provided in
             825      the plan and determined by procedures specified in the plan, but the contractual rights of any
             826      bondholder or creditor [shall not] may not be impaired.
             827          (8) Upon the effective date of the plan and as provided in it, nonelective officers and
             828      employees of governmental entities which are merged into the new countywide government
             829      and such officers and employees of nonmerged cities or towns whose qualifications and duties
             830      relate primarily to functions which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of those
             831      cities or towns, shall be blanketed in and transferred to the new countywide government as
             832      officers and employees of it. Standards and procedures relating to such personnel transfers, and
             833      for resolving disputes or grievances relating thereto, shall be provided in the plan.
             834          Section 30. Section 17-35b-304 is amended to read:
             835           17-35b-304. Consolidated city and county -- Structural form.
             836          (1) The structural form of county government known as the "consolidated city and
             837      county" form unites in a single consolidated city and county government the powers, duties,
             838      and functions which, immediately prior to its effective date, are vested in the county, the largest
             839      city in the county, such other cities and towns as elect to merge in it, and all special taxing
             840      districts, public authorities, county service areas, and other local public entities functioning
             841      within the boundaries of the county, except school districts. The consolidated government shall


             842      with the consent of the continuing municipalities have power to extend on a countywide basis
             843      any governmental service or function which is authorized by law or which the previous county,
             844      cities, and other local public agencies included in them were empowered to provide for their
             845      residents. No such service, however, shall be provided within an incorporated municipality
             846      which continues to provide that such service for its own inhabitants, except upon a contract
             847      basis for the municipality. No taxes, assessments, fees, or other charges shall be extended or
             848      collected by the consolidated government within any municipality for the purpose of financing
             849      any service which is not provided by the consolidated government within the municipality.
             850      "Largest city," as used in this section, means a city or cities the population of which, as shown
             851      by the most recent decennial or special census, exceeds 35% of the total county population.
             852          (2) The incorporated cities and towns, other than the largest city in the county, shall
             853      retain independent corporate existence and shall continue to provide local services to their
             854      inhabitants of the type and to the extent provided in the plan; but any such city or town by
             855      majority vote of its qualified voters cast either concurrently with the election at which the plan
             856      is approved or subsequently to it, as provided by the governing body of the city or town, may
             857      cause the city or town to be dissolved and its powers, duties, and functions vested in the
             858      consolidated government.
             859          (3) The governing body of the consolidated government shall be a council composed of
             860      not less than five persons elected as specified in the plan. In addition to other powers vested in
             861      the consolidated government by law or pursuant to this act, the county council shall have all the
             862      legislative and policymaking powers which it is possible for the governing body of a county or
             863      a city to possess and which are not expressly denied by the constitution, by general law
             864      applicable to all cities or all counties, or by a specific restriction in the plan itself.
             865          (4) Except as provided in this act, the qualifications, mode of election, term of office,
             866      method of removal, procedure to fill vacancies, compensation, or other appropriate provisions
             867      relating to membership on the county council shall be provided in the plan.
             868          (5) Upon the effective date of the plan, as provided in it, all properties and assets,
             869      whether tangible or intangible, and all obligations, debts, and liabilities of those governmental


             870      entities which are merged into the consolidated government shall become vested and
             871      transferred by operation of law in and to the consolidated government. The properties, assets,
             872      obligations, debts, and liabilities of any city or town not merged into the consolidated
             873      government, so far as allocated, used, or incurred primarily to discharge a function which under
             874      the plan will no longer be a responsibility of the city or town, shall likewise be vested in and
             875      transferred to the consolidated government. All transfers under this Subsection (5) shall be
             876      subject to equitable adjustments, conditions, and limitations provided in the plan and
             877      determined by procedures specified in the plan, but the contractual rights of any bondholder or
             878      creditor [shall not] may not be impaired.
             879          (6) Upon the effective date of the plan, and as provided in it, nonelective officers and
             880      employees of the governmental entities which are merged into the consolidated government
             881      and such officers and employees of nonmerged cities or towns whose qualifications and duties
             882      relate primarily to functions which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of those
             883      cities or towns shall be blanketed in and transferred to the consolidated government as officers
             884      and employees of it. Standards and procedures relating to such personnel transfers and for
             885      resolving disputes or grievances relating to them shall be provided in the plan.
             886          Section 31. Section 17-36-10 is amended to read:
             887           17-36-10. Preparation of tentative budget.
             888          (1) On or before the first day of the next to last month of every fiscal period, the budget
             889      officer shall prepare for the next budget period and file with the governing body a tentative

             897      request;


             898          (ii) (A) the total revenue requirements of the fund;
             899          (B) the part of the total revenue that will be derived from revenue sources other than
             900      property tax; and

             903      available in work units, unit costs, man hours, and man years for each budgeted fund that
             904      includes an appropriation for salaries or wages for the last completed fiscal period and the first
             905      eight months of the current fiscal period if the county is on an annual fiscal period, or the first

             907      the total estimated performance data of like character for the current fiscal period and for the
             908      ensuing budget period.
             909          (3) The budget officer may recommend modification of any departmental budget
             910      request under Subsection (2)(c)(i) before it is filed with the governing body, if each department
             911      head has been given an opportunity to be heard concerning the modification.
             912          (4) Each tentative budget shall contain the estimates of expenditures submitted by any
             913      department together with specific work programs and other supportive data as the governing
             914      body requests. The tentative budget shall be accompanied by a supplementary estimate of all
             915      capital projects or planned capital projects within the budget period and within the next three
             916      succeeding years.
             917          (5) (a) Each tentative budget submitted in a county with a population in excess of
             918      25,000 determined pursuant to Section 17-36-4 shall be accompanied by a budget message in
             919      explanation of the budget.
             920          (b) The budget message shall contain an outline of the proposed financial policies of
             921      the county for the budget period and describe the important features of the budgetary plan. It
             922      shall also state the reasons for changes from the previous fiscal period in appropriation and

             924          (c) A budget message for counties with a population of less than 25,000 is
             925      recommended but not incumbent upon the budget officer.

             942      executive body -- Contract or lease with private entity for management -- Deposit of
             943      money collected -- Expenditures -- Recommendations by directors to county executive
             944      body.
             945          (1) Upon the appointment of a planetarium board of directors, the county executive

             948      its delegation the authority to approve and control all expenditures from the county planetarium
             949      fund. Any delegation of authority made to the board of directors under this section shall at all
             950      times be subject to the ultimate authority and responsibility of the county executive for the

             1197          (d) designate up to three signers of the petition as sponsors, or in the case of a petition
             1198      filed under Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(iv), designate a governmental representative as a

             1201          (e) state the reasons for withdrawal; and
             1202          (f) when the petition is filed with the local district board of trustees, be accompanied by
             1203      a map generally depicting the boundaries of the area proposed to be withdrawn and a legal
             1204      description of the area proposed to be withdrawn.
             1205          (2) (a) The local district may prepare an itemized list of expenses, other than attorney


             1206      expenses, that will necessarily be incurred by the local district in the withdrawal proceeding.
             1207      The itemized list of expenses may be submitted to the contact sponsor. If the list of expenses is
             1208      submitted to the contact sponsor within 21 days after receipt of the petition, the contact sponsor
             1209      on behalf of the petitioners shall be required to pay the expenses to the local district within 90
             1210      days of receipt. Until funds to cover the expenses are delivered to the local district, the district
             1211      will have no obligation to proceed with the withdrawal and the time limits on the district stated
             1212      in this part will be tolled. If the expenses are not paid within the 90 days, or within 90 days
             1213      from the conclusion of any arbitration under Subsection (2)(b), the petition requesting the
             1214      withdrawal shall be considered to have been withdrawn.
             1215          (b) If there is no agreement between the board of trustees of the local district and the

             1221      Title 78B, Chapter 11, Utah Uniform Arbitration Act.
             1222          (3) A signer of a petition may withdraw or, once withdrawn, reinstate the signer's
             1223      signature at any time before the public hearing under Section 17B-1-508 by submitting a
             1224      written withdrawal or reinstatement with the board of trustees of the local district in which the
             1225      area proposed to be withdrawn is located.
             1226          (4) If it reasonably appears that, if the withdrawal which is the subject of a petition
             1227      filed under Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(i) or (ii) is granted, it will be necessary for a
             1228      municipality to provide to the withdrawn area the service previously supplied by the local
             1229      district, the board of trustees of the local district may, within 21 days after receiving the
             1230      petition, notify the contact sponsor in writing that, before it will be considered by the board of
             1231      trustees, the petition [must] shall be presented to and approved by the governing body of the
             1232      municipality as provided in Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(iv) before it will be considered by the
             1233      local district board of trustees. If the notice is timely given to the contact sponsor, the petition


             1234      shall be considered to have been withdrawn until the municipality files a petition with the local
             1235      district under Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(iv).
             1236          (5) (a) After receiving the notice required by Subsection 17B-1-504 (2), unless
             1237      specifically allowed by law, a public entity may not make expenditures from public funds to
             1238      support or oppose the gathering of signatures on a petition for withdrawal.
             1239          (b) Nothing in this section prohibits a public entity from providing factual information
             1240      and analysis regarding a withdrawal petition to the public, so long as the information grants
             1241      equal access to both the opponents and proponents of the petition for withdrawal.
             1242          (c) Nothing in this section prohibits a public official from speaking, campaigning,
             1243      contributing personal money, or otherwise exercising the public official's constitutional rights.
             1244          Section 42. Section 17B-1-510 is amended to read:
             1245           17B-1-510. Resolution approving or rejecting withdrawal -- Criteria for approval
             1246      or rejection -- Terms and conditions.
             1247          (1) (a) On or before the date of the board meeting next following the public hearing
             1248      under Section 17B-1-508 , but in no case later than 90 days after the public hearing or, if no

             1250      of trustees of the local district in which the area proposed to be withdrawn is located shall
             1251      adopt a resolution:

             1253          (ii) rejecting the withdrawal.
             1254          (b) Each resolution approving a withdrawal shall:
             1255          (i) include a legal description of the area proposed to be withdrawn;
             1256          (ii) state the effective date of the withdrawal; and
             1257          (iii) set forth the terms and conditions under Subsection (5), if any, of the withdrawal.
             1258          (c) Each resolution rejecting a withdrawal shall include a detailed explanation of the
             1259      board of trustees' reasons for the rejection.
             1260          (2) Unless denial of the petition is required under Subsection (3), the board of trustees
             1261      shall adopt a resolution approving the withdrawal of some or all of the area from the local


             1262      district if the board of trustees determines that:
             1263          (a) the area to be withdrawn does not and will not require the service that the local
             1264      district provides;
             1265          (b) the local district will not be able to provide service to the area to be withdrawn for
             1266      the reasonably foreseeable future; or
             1267          (c) the area to be withdrawn has obtained the same service that is provided by the local
             1268      district or a commitment to provide the same service that is provided by the local district from
             1269      another source.
             1270          (3) The board of trustees shall adopt a resolution denying the withdrawal if it
             1271      determines that the proposed withdrawal would:
             1272          (a) result in a breach or default by the local district under:
             1273          (i) any of its notes, bonds, or other debt or revenue obligations;
             1274          (ii) any of its agreements with entities which have insured, guaranteed, or otherwise
             1275      credit-enhanced any debt or revenue obligations of the local district; or
             1276          (iii) any of its agreements with the United States or any agency of the United States;
             1277      provided, however, that, if the local district has entered into an agreement with the United
             1278      States that requires the consent of the United States for a withdrawal of territory from the
             1279      district, a withdrawal under this part may occur if the written consent of the United States is
             1280      obtained and filed with the board of trustees;
             1281          (b) adversely affect the ability of the local district to make any payments or perform
             1282      any other material obligations under:
             1283          (i) any of its agreements with the United States or any agency of the United States;
             1284          (ii) any of its notes, bonds, or other debt or revenue obligations; or
             1285          (iii) any of its agreements with entities which have insured, guaranteed, or otherwise
             1286      credit-enhanced any debt or revenue obligations of the local district;
             1287          (c) result in the reduction or withdrawal of any rating on an outstanding note, bond, or
             1288      other debt or revenue obligation of the local district;
             1289          (d) create an island or peninsula of nondistrict territory within the local district or of


             1290      district territory within nondistrict territory that has a material adverse affect on the local
             1291      district's ability to provide service or materially increases the cost of providing service to the
             1292      remainder of the local district;
             1293          (e) materially impair the operations of the remaining local district; or
             1294          (f) require the local district to materially increase the fees it charges or property taxes
             1295      or other taxes it levies in order to provide to the remainder of the district the same level and
             1296      quality of service that was provided before the withdrawal.
             1297          (4) In determining whether the withdrawal would have any of the results described in
             1298      Subsection (3), the board of trustees may consider the cumulative impact that multiple
             1299      withdrawals over a specified period of time would have on the local district.
             1300          (5) (a) Despite the presence of one or more of the conditions listed in Subsection (3),
             1301      the board of trustees may approve a resolution withdrawing an area from the local district
             1302      imposing terms or conditions that mitigate or eliminate the conditions listed in Subsection (3),
             1303      including:
             1304          (i) a requirement that the owners of property located within the area proposed to be
             1305      withdrawn or residents within that area pay their proportionate share of any outstanding district
             1306      bond or other obligation as determined pursuant to Subsection (5)(b);
             1307          (ii) a requirement that the owners of property located within the area proposed to be
             1308      withdrawn or residents within that area make one or more payments in lieu of taxes, fees, or
             1309      assessments;
             1310          (iii) a requirement that the board of trustees and the receiving entity agree to reasonable
             1311      payment and other terms in accordance with Subsections (5)(f) through (g) regarding the
             1312      transfer to the receiving entity of district assets that the district used before withdrawal to
             1313      provide service to the withdrawn area but no longer needs because of the withdrawal; provided
             1314      that, if those district assets are allocated in accordance with Subsections (5)(f) through (g), the
             1315      district shall immediately transfer to the receiving entity on the effective date of the
             1316      withdrawal, all title to and possession of district assets allocated to the receiving entity; or
             1317          (iv) any other reasonable requirement considered to be necessary by the board of


             1318      trustees.
             1319          (b) Other than as provided for in Subsection 17B-1-511 (2), and except as provided in
             1320      Subsection (5)(e), in determining the proportionate share of outstanding bonded indebtedness
             1321      or other obligations under Subsection (5)(a)(i) and for purposes of determining the allocation
             1322      and transfer of district assets under Subsection (5)(a)(iii), the board of trustees and the
             1323      receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the
             1324      petition shall:
             1325          (i) engage engineering and accounting consultants chosen by the procedure provided in
             1326      Subsection (5)(d); provided however, that if the withdrawn area is not receiving service, an
             1327      engineering consultant need not be engaged; and
             1328          (ii) require the engineering and accounting consultants engaged under Subsection
             1329      (5)(b)(i) to communicate in writing to the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases
             1330      where there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition the information
             1331      required by Subsections (5)(f) through (h).
             1332          (c) For purposes of this Subsection (5):
             1333          (i) "accounting consultant" means a certified public accountant or a firm of certified
             1334      public accountants with the expertise necessary to make the determinations required under
             1335      Subsection (5)(h); and
             1336          (ii) "engineering consultant" means a person or firm that has the expertise in the
             1337      engineering aspects of the type of system by which the withdrawn area is receiving service that
             1338      is necessary to make the determination required under Subsections (5)(f) and (g).
             1339          (d) (i) Unless the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is
             1340      no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition agree on an engineering
             1341      consultant and an accounting consultant, each consultant shall be chosen from a list of
             1342      consultants provided by the Consulting Engineers Council of Utah and the Utah Association of
             1343      Certified Public Accountants, respectively, as provided in this Subsection (5)(d).
             1344          (ii) A list under Subsection (5)(d)(i) may not include a consultant who has had a
             1345      contract for services with the district or the receiving entity during the two-year period


             1346      immediately before the list is provided to the local district.
             1347          (iii) Within 20 days of receiving the lists described in Subsection (5)(d)(i), the board of
             1348      trustees shall eliminate the name of one engineering consultant from the list of engineering
             1349      consultants and the name of one accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants
             1350      and shall notify the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors
             1351      of the petition in writing of the eliminations.
             1352          (iv) Within three days of receiving notification under Subsection (5)(d), the receiving
             1353      entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of the petition shall eliminate
             1354      another name of an engineering consultant from the list of engineering consultants and another
             1355      name of an accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants and shall notify the
             1356      board of trustees in writing of the eliminations.
             1357          (v) The board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no
             1358      receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition shall continue to alternate between
             1359      them, each eliminating the name of one engineering consultant from the list of engineering
             1360      consultants and the name of one accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants
             1361      and providing written notification of the eliminations within three days of receiving
             1362      notification of the previous notification, until the name of only one engineering consultant
             1363      remains on the list of engineering consultants and the name of only one accounting consultant
             1364      remains on the list of accounting consultants.
             1365          (e) The requirement under Subsection (5)(b) to engage engineering and accounting
             1366      consultants does not apply if the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where
             1367      there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition agree on the allocations
             1368      that are the engineering consultant's responsibility under Subsection (5)(f) or the
             1369      determinations that are the accounting consultant's responsibility under Subsection (5)(h);
             1370      provided however, that if engineering and accounting consultants are engaged, the district and
             1371      the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the district and the sponsors
             1372      of the petition shall equally share the cost of the engineering and accounting consultants.
             1373          (f) (i) The engineering consultant shall allocate the district assets between the district


             1374      and the receiving entity as provided in this Subsection (5)(f).
             1375          (ii) The engineering consultant shall allocate:
             1376          (A) to the district those assets reasonably needed by the district to provide to the area
             1377      of the district remaining after withdrawal the kind, level, and quality of service that was
             1378      provided before withdrawal; and
             1379          (B) to the receiving entity those assets reasonably needed by the receiving entity to
             1380      provide to the withdrawn area the kind and quality of service that was provided before
             1381      withdrawal.
             1382          (iii) If the engineering consultant determines that both the local district and the
             1383      receiving entity reasonably need a district asset to provide to their respective areas the kind and
             1384      quality of service provided before withdrawal, the engineering consultant shall:
             1385          (A) allocate the asset between the local district and the receiving entity according to
             1386      their relative needs, if the asset is reasonably susceptible of division; or
             1387          (B) allocate the asset to the local district, if the asset is not reasonably susceptible of
             1388      division.
             1389          (g) All district assets remaining after application of Subsection (5)(f) shall be allocated
             1390      to the local district.
             1391          (h) (i) The accounting consultant shall determine the withdrawn area's proportionate
             1392      share of any redemption premium and the principal of and interest on:
             1393          (A) the local district's revenue bonds that were outstanding at the time the petition was
             1394      filed;
             1395          (B) the local district's general obligation bonds that were outstanding at the time the
             1396      petition was filed; and
             1397          (C) the local district's general obligation bonds that:
             1398          (I) were outstanding at the time the petition was filed; and
             1399          (II) are treated as revenue bonds under Subsection (5)(i); and
             1400          (D) the district's bonds that were issued prior to the date the petition was filed to refund
             1401      the district's revenue bonds, general obligation bonds, or general obligation bonds treated as


             1402      revenue bonds.
             1403          (ii) For purposes of Subsection (5)(h)(i), the withdrawn area's proportionate share of
             1404      redemption premium, principal, and interest shall be the amount that bears the same
             1405      relationship to the total redemption premium, principal, and interest for the entire district that
             1406      the average annual gross revenues from the withdrawn area during the three most recent
             1407      complete fiscal years before the filing of the petition bears to the average annual gross revenues
             1408      from the entire district for the same period.
             1409          (i) For purposes of Subsection (5)(h)(i), a district general obligation bond shall be
             1410      treated as a revenue bond if:
             1411          (i) the bond is outstanding on the date the petition was filed; and
             1412          (ii) the principal of and interest on the bond, as of the date the petition was filed, had
             1413      been paid entirely from local district revenues and not from a levy of ad valorem tax.
             1414          (j) (i) Before the board of trustees of the local district files a resolution approving a
             1415      withdrawal, the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of
             1416      the petition shall irrevocably deposit government obligations, as defined in Subsection
             1417      11-27-2 (6), into an escrow trust fund the principal of and interest on which are sufficient to
             1418      provide for the timely payment of the amount determined by the accounting consultant under
             1419      Subsection (5)(h) or in an amount mutually agreeable to the board of trustees of the local
             1420      district and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the board and the
             1421      sponsors of the petition. Notwithstanding Subsection 17B-1-512 (1), the board of trustees
             1422      [shall not] may not be required to file a resolution approving a withdrawal until the
             1423      requirements for establishing and funding an escrow trust fund in this Subsection (5)(j)(i) have
             1424      been met; provided that, if the escrow trust fund has not been established and funded within
             1425      180 days after the board of trustees passes a resolution approving a withdrawal, the resolution
             1426      approving the withdrawal shall be void.
             1427          (ii) Concurrently with the creation of the escrow, the receiving entity, or in cases where
             1428      there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of the petition shall provide to the board of trustees of
             1429      the local district:


             1430          (A) a written opinion of an attorney experienced in the tax-exempt status of municipal
             1431      bonds stating that the establishment and use of the escrow to pay the proportionate share of the
             1432      district's outstanding revenue bonds and general obligation bonds that are treated as revenue
             1433      bonds will not adversely affect the tax-exempt status of the bonds; and
             1434          (B) a written opinion of an independent certified public accountant verifying that the
             1435      principal of and interest on the deposited government obligations are sufficient to provide for
             1436      the payment of the withdrawn area's proportionate share of the bonds as provided in Subsection
             1437      (5)(h).
             1438          (iii) The receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of
             1439      the petition shall bear all expenses of the escrow and the redemption of the bonds.
             1440          (iv) The receiving entity may issue bonds under Title 11, Chapter 14, Local
             1441      Government Bonding Act, and Title 11, Chapter 27, Utah Refunding Bond Act, to fund the
             1442      escrow.
             1443          (6) A requirement imposed by the board of trustees as a condition to withdrawal under
             1444      Subsection (5) shall, in addition to being expressed in the resolution, be reduced to a duly
             1445      authorized and executed written agreement between the parties to the withdrawal.
             1446          (7) An area that is the subject of a withdrawal petition under Section 17B-1-504 that
             1447      results in a board of trustees resolution denying the proposed withdrawal may not be the
             1448      subject of another withdrawal petition under Section 17B-1-504 for two years after the date of
             1449      the board of trustees resolution denying the withdrawal.

             1523      under Subsection (5);

             2098          (7) If the owner or operator of a source subject to this section fails to timely pay an
             2099      annual emissions fee, the executive secretary may:
             2100          (a) impose a penalty of not more than 50% of the fee, in addition to the fee, plus
             2101      interest on the fee computed at 12% annually; or


             2102          (b) revoke the operating permit.
             2103          (8) The owner or operator of a source subject to this section may contest an emissions
             2104      fee assessment or associated penalty in an adjudicative hearing under the Title 63G, Chapter 4,
             2105      Administrative Procedures Act, and Section 19-1-301 , as provided in this Subsection (8).
             2106          (a) The owner or operator [must] shall pay the fee under protest prior to being entitled
             2107      to a hearing. Payment of an emissions fee or penalty under protest is not a waiver of the right
             2108      to contest the fee or penalty under this section.
             2109          (b) A request for a hearing under this Subsection (8) shall be made after payment of the
             2110      emissions fee and within six months after the emissions fee was due.
             2111          (9) To reinstate an operating permit revoked under Subsection (7) the owner or
             2112      operator shall pay all outstanding emissions fees, a penalty of not more than 50% of all
             2113      outstanding fees, and interest on the outstanding emissions fees computed at 12% annually.
             2114          (10) All emissions fees and penalties collected by the department under this section
             2115      shall be deposited in the General Fund as the Air Pollution Operating Permit Program
             2116      dedicated credit to be used solely to pay for the reasonable direct and indirect costs incurred by
             2117      the department in developing and administering the program and the small business assistance
             2118      program under Section 19-2-109.2 .
             2119          (11) Failure of the executive secretary to act on any operating permit application or
             2120      renewal is a final administrative action only for the purpose of obtaining judicial review by any
             2121      of the following persons to require the executive secretary to take action on the permit or its
             2122      renewal without additional delay:
             2123          (a) the applicant;
             2124          (b) any person who participated in the public comment process; or
             2125          (c) any other person who could obtain judicial review of that action under applicable
             2126      law.
             2127          Section 50. Section 19-2-113 is amended to read:
             2128           19-2-113. Variances -- Judicial review.
             2129          (1) (a) Any person who owns or is in control of any plant, building, structure,


             2130      establishment, process, or equipment may apply to the board for a variance from its rules.
             2131          (b) The board may grant the requested variance following an announced public
             2132      meeting, if it finds, after considering the endangerment to human health and safety and other
             2133      relevant factors, that compliance with the rules from which variance is sought would produce
             2134      serious hardship without equal or greater benefits to the public.
             2135          (2) A variance may not be granted under this section until the board has considered the
             2136      relative interests of the applicant, other owners of property likely to be affected by the
             2137      discharges, and the general public.
             2138          (3) Any variance or renewal of a variance shall be granted within the requirements of
             2139      Subsection (1) and for time periods and under conditions consistent with the reasons for it, and
             2140      within the following limitations:
             2141          (a) if the variance is granted on the grounds that there are no practicable means known
             2142      or available for the adequate prevention, abatement, or control of the air pollution involved, it
             2143      shall be only until the necessary means for prevention, abatement, or control become known
             2144      and available, and subject to the taking of any substitute or alternate measures that the board
             2145      may prescribe;
             2146          (b) (i) if the variance is granted on the grounds that compliance with the requirements
             2147      from which variance is sought will require that measures, because of their extent or cost, must
             2148      be spread over a long period of time, the variance shall be granted for a reasonable time that, in
             2149      the view of the board, is required for implementation of the necessary measures; and
             2150          (ii) a variance granted on this ground shall contain a timetable for the implementation
             2151      of remedial measures in an expeditious manner and shall be conditioned on adherence to the
             2152      timetable; or
             2153          (c) if the variance is granted on the ground that it is necessary to relieve or prevent
             2154      hardship of a kind other than that provided for in Subsection (3)(a) or (b), it [shall not] may not
             2155      be granted for more than one year.
             2156          (4) (a) Any variance granted under this section may be renewed on terms and
             2157      conditions and for periods that would be appropriate for initially granting a variance.


             2158          (b) If a complaint is made to the board because of the variance, a renewal may not be
             2159      granted unless, following an announced public meeting, the board finds that renewal is
             2160      justified.
             2161          (c) To receive a renewal, an applicant shall submit a request for agency action to the
             2162      board requesting a renewal.
             2163          (d) Immediately upon receipt of an application for renewal, the board shall give public
             2164      notice of the application as required by its rules.
             2165          (5) (a) A variance or renewal is not a right of the applicant or holder but may be
             2166      granted at the board's discretion.
             2167          (b) A person aggrieved by the board's decision may obtain judicial review.
             2168          (c) Venue for judicial review of informal adjudicative proceedings is in the district
             2169      court in which the air contaminant source is situated.
             2170          (6) (a) The board may review any variance during the term for which it was granted.
             2171          (b) The review procedure is the same as that for an original application.
             2172          (c) The variance may be revoked upon a finding that:
             2173          (i) the nature or amount of emission has changed or increased; or
             2174          (ii) if facts existing at the date of the review had existed at the time of the original
             2175      application, the variance would not have been granted.
             2176          (7) Nothing in this section and no variance or renewal granted pursuant to it shall be
             2177      construed to prevent or limit the application of the emergency provisions and procedures of
             2178      Section 19-2-112 to any person or property.
             2179          Section 51. Section 19-2-115 is amended to read:
             2180           19-2-115. Violations -- Penalties -- Reimbursement for expenses.
             2181          (1) As used in this section, the terms "knowingly," "willfully," and "criminal
             2182      negligence" shall mean as defined in Section 76-2-103 .
             2183          (2) (a) A person who violates this chapter, or any rule, order, or permit issued or made
             2184      under this chapter is subject in a civil proceeding to a penalty not to exceed $10,000 per day for
             2185      each violation.


             2186          (b) Subsection (2)(a) also applies to rules made under the authority of Section
             2187      19-2-104 , for implementation of 15 U.S.C.A. 2601 et seq., Toxic Substances Control Act,
             2188      Subchapter II - Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response.
             2189          (c) Penalties assessed for violations described in 15 U.S.C.A. 2647, Toxic Substances
             2190      Control Act, Subchapter II - Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response, may not exceed the

             2201      report required by permit; or
             2202          (b) renders inaccurate any monitoring device or method required to be maintained by
             2203      this chapter or applicable rules made under this chapter.
             2204          (5) Any fine or penalty assessed under Subsections (2) or (3) is in lieu of any penalty
             2205      under Section 19-2-109.1 .
             2206          (6) A person who willfully violates Section 19-2-120 is guilty of a class A
             2207      misdemeanor.
             2208          (7) A person who knowingly violates any requirement of an applicable implementation
             2209      plan adopted by the board, more than 30 days after having been notified in writing by the

             2215      subsequent offenses.
             2216          (8) (a) As used in this section:
             2217          (i) "Hazardous air pollutant" means any hazardous air pollutant listed under 42 U.S.C.
             2218      7412 or any extremely hazardous substance listed under 42 U.S.C. 11002(a)(2).
             2219          (ii) "Organization" means a legal entity, other than a government, established or

             2241          (e) (i) A defendant who is an individual is considered to have acted knowingly under


             2242      Subsections (8)(c) and (d), if:
             2243          (A) the defendant's conduct placed another person in imminent danger of death or
             2244      serious bodily injury; and
             2245          (B) the defendant was aware of or believed that there was an imminent danger of death
             2246      or serious bodily injury to another person.
             2247          (ii) Knowledge possessed by a person other than the defendant may not be attributed to

             2251      receiving relevant information.
             2252          (f) (i) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this Subsection (8) that the
             2253      conduct charged was freely consented to by the person endangered and that the danger and
             2254      conduct charged were reasonably foreseeable hazards of:
             2255          (A) an occupation, a business, a profession; or
             2256          (B) medical treatment or medical or scientific experimentation conducted by
             2257      professionally approved methods and the other person was aware of the risks involved prior to
             2258      giving consent.
             2259          (ii) The defendant has the burden of proof to establish any affirmative defense under
             2260      this Subsection (8)(f) and [must] shall prove that defense by a preponderance of the evidence.
             2261          (9) (a) Except as provided in Subsection (9)(b), and unless prohibited by federal law,
             2262      all penalties assessed and collected under the authority of this section shall be deposited in the
             2263      General Fund.
             2264          (b) The department may reimburse itself and local governments from money collected
             2265      from civil penalties for extraordinary expenses incurred in environmental enforcement
             2266      activities.
             2267          (c) The department shall regulate reimbursements by making rules in accordance with
             2268      Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, that:
             2269          (i) define qualifying environmental enforcement activities; and


             2270          (ii) define qualifying extraordinary expenses.
             2271          Section 52. Section 19-3-302 is amended to read:
             2272           19-3-302. Legislative intent.
             2273          (1) (a) The state [of Utah] enacts this part to prevent the placement of any high-level
             2274      nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste in Utah. The state also recognizes that
             2275      high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste may be placed within the
             2276      exterior boundaries of the state, pursuant to a license from the federal government, or by the
             2277      federal government itself, in violation of this state law.
             2278          (b) Due to this possibility, the state also enacts provisions in this part to regulate
             2279      transportation, transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, and disposal of any high-level
             2280      nuclear waste and greater than class C radioactive waste in Utah, thereby asserting and
             2281      protecting the state's interests in environmental and economic resources consistent with 42
             2282      U.S.C.A. 2011 et seq., Atomic Energy Act and 42 U.S.C.A. 10101 et seq., Nuclear Waste
             2283      Policy Act, should the federal government decide to authorize any entity to operate, or operate
             2284      itself, in violation of this state law.
             2285          (2) Neither the Atomic Energy Act nor the Nuclear Waste Policy Act provides for
             2286      siting a large privately owned high-level nuclear waste transfer, storage, decay in storage, or
             2287      treatment facility away from the vicinity of the reactors. The Atomic Energy Act and the
             2288      Nuclear Waste Policy Act specifically define authorized storage and disposal programs and
             2289      activities. The state [of Utah] in enacting this part is not preempted by federal law, since any
             2290      proposed facilities that would be sited in Utah are not contemplated or authorized by federal
             2291      law and, in any circumstance, this part is not contrary to or inconsistent with federal law or
             2292      congressional intent.
             2293          (3) The state [of Utah] has environmental and economic interests which do not involve
             2294      nuclear safety regulation, and which [must] shall be considered and complied with in siting a
             2295      high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste transfer, storage, decay in
             2296      storage, treatment, or disposal facility and in transporting these wastes in the state.
             2297          (4) An additional primary purpose of this part is to ensure protection of the state from


             2298      nonradiological hazards associated with any waste transportation, transfer, storage, decay in
             2299      storage, treatment, or disposal.
             2300          (5) The state recognizes the sovereign rights of Indian tribes within the state [of Utah].
             2301      However, any proposed transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility
             2302      located on a reservation which directly affects and impacts state interests by creating
             2303      off-reservation effects such as potential or actual degradation of soils and groundwater,
             2304      potential or actual contamination of surface water, pollution of the ambient air, emergency
             2305      planning costs, impacts on development, agriculture, and ranching, and increased
             2306      transportation activity, is subject to state jurisdiction.
             2307          (6) There is no tradition of regulation by the Indian tribes in Utah of high-level nuclear
             2308      waste or higher than class C radioactive waste. The state does have a long history of regulation
             2309      of radioactive sources and natural resources and in the transfer, storage, treatment, and
             2310      transportation of materials and wastes throughout the state. The state finds that its interests are
             2311      even greater when nonmembers of an Indian tribe propose to locate a facility on tribal trust
             2312      lands primarily to avoid state regulation and state authorities under federal law.
             2313          (7) (a) This part is not intended to modify existing state requirements for obtaining
             2314      environmental approvals, permits, and licenses, including surface and groundwater permits and
             2315      air quality permits, when the permits are necessary under state and federal law to construct and
             2316      operate a high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste transfer, storage,
             2317      decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility.
             2318          (b) Any source of air pollution proposed to be located within the state, including
             2319      sources located within the boundaries of an Indian reservation, which will potentially or
             2320      actually have a direct and significant impact on ambient air within the state, is required to
             2321      obtain an approval order and permit from the state under Section 19-2-108 .
             2322          (c) Any facility which will potentially or actually have a significant impact on the
             2323      state's surface or groundwater resources is required to obtain a permit under Section 19-5-107
             2324      even if located within the boundaries of an Indian reservation.
             2325          (8) The state finds that the transportation, transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment,


             2326      and disposal of high-level nuclear waste and greater than class C radioactive waste within the
             2327      state is an ultra-hazardous activity which carries with it the risk that any release of waste may
             2328      result in enormous economic and human injury.
             2329          Section 53. Section 19-3-308 is amended to read:
             2330           19-3-308. Application fee and annual fees.
             2331          (1) (a) Any application for a waste transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, or
             2332      disposal facility shall be accompanied by an initial fee of $5,000,000.
             2333          (b) The applicant shall subsequently pay an additional fee to cover the costs to the state
             2334      associated with review of the application, including costs to the state and the state's contractors
             2335      for permitting, technical, administrative, legal, safety, and emergency response reviews,
             2336      planning, training, infrastructure, and other impact analyses, studies, and services required to
             2337      evaluate a proposed facility.
             2338          (2) For the purpose of funding the state oversight and inspection of any waste transfer,
             2339      storage, decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility, and to establish state infrastructure,
             2340      including[, but not limited to] providing for state Department of Environmental Quality, state
             2341      Department of Transportation, state Department of Public Safety, and other state agencies'
             2342      technical, administrative, legal, infrastructure, maintenance, training, safety, socio-economic,
             2343      law enforcement, and emergency resources necessary to respond to these facilities, the owner
             2344      or operator shall pay to the state a fee as established by department rule under Section
             2345      63J-1-504 , to be assessed:
             2346          (a) per ton of storage cask and high-level nuclear waste per year for storage, decay in
             2347      storage, treatment, or disposal of high-level nuclear waste;
             2348          (b) per ton of transportation cask and high-level nuclear waste for each transfer of
             2349      high-level nuclear waste;
             2350          (c) per ton of storage cask and greater than class C radioactive waste for the storage,
             2351      decay in storage, treatment, or disposal of greater than class C radioactive waste; and
             2352          (d) per ton of transportation cask and greater than class C radioactive waste for each
             2353      transfer of greater than class C radioactive waste.


             2354          (3) Funds collected under Subsection (2) shall be placed in the Nuclear Accident and
             2355      Hazard Compensation Account, created in Subsection 19-3-309 (3).
             2356          (4) The owner or operator of the facility shall pay the fees imposed under this section
             2357      to the department on or before the 15th day of the month following the month in which the fee
             2358      accrued.
             2359          (5) Annual fees due under this part accrue on July 1 of each year and shall be paid to
             2360      the department by July 15 of that year.
             2361          Section 54. Section 19-4-112 is amended to read:
             2362           19-4-112. Limit on authority of department and board to control irrigation
             2363      facilities -- Precautions relating to nonpotable water systems.
             2364          (1) Except as provided in this section and in Section 19-5-104 , nothing contained in
             2365      this chapter authorizes the department or board to:
             2366          (a) exercise administrative control over water used solely for irrigation purposes,
             2367      whether conveyed in pipes, ditches, canals, or by other facilities; or
             2368          (b) adopt rules relating to the construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities for
             2369      conveying irrigation water to the place of use.

             2774      would be less detrimental to the public health or safety or to the quality of the environment;
             2775      and
             2776          (c) compliance history of an owner or operator of a proposed commercial
             2777      nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility, which may be
             2778      applied by the executive secretary in a nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste operation plan
             2779      decision, including any plan conditions.
             2780          (11) The executive secretary may not approve a commercial nonhazardous solid or
             2781      hazardous waste facility operation plan unless based on the application, and in addition to the
             2782      determination required in Subsections (9) and (10), the executive secretary determines that:
             2783          (a) the probable beneficial environmental effect of the facility to the state outweighs
             2784      the probable adverse environmental effect; and
             2785          (b) there is a need for the facility to serve industry within the state.
             2786          (12) Approval of a nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste operation plan may be
             2787      revoked, in whole or in part, if the person to whom approval of the plan has been given fails to

             2864          (i) the hazardous wastes generated in the state;
             2865          (ii) those likely to be generated in the future;
             2866          (iii) those being generated in other states that are likely to be treated, disposed of, or
             2867      stored in the state;
             2868          (iv) the sites within the state currently being used for hazardous waste and those
             2869      suggested through the nomination process;
             2870          (v) the treatment, storage, and disposal processes and management practices that are
             2871      required to comply with Section 19-6-108 ; and
             2872          (vi) an estimate of the public and private costs for meeting the long-term demand for
             2873      hazardous waste treatment, disposal, and storage facilities.
             2874          (d) (i) After the hazardous waste inventory and cost estimate are complete, the board,
             2875      with the use of the guidelines developed in Section 19-6-204 , shall provide for the geographical
             2876      distribution of enough sites to fulfill the state's needs for hazardous waste disposal, treatment,

             2878          (ii) The board [shall not] may not exclude any area of the state from consideration in
             2879      the selection of potential sites but, to the maximum extent possible, shall give preference to
             2880      sites located in areas already dedicated through zoning or other land use regulations to
             2881      industrial use or to areas located near industrial uses. However, the board shall give
             2882      consideration to excluding an area designated for disposal of uranium mill tailings or for
             2883      disposal of nuclear wastes unless the proposed disposal site is approved by the affected county
             2884      through its county executive and county legislative body.
             2885          (e) The board shall also analyze and identify areas of the state where, due to the


             2886      concentration of industrial waste generation processes or to favorable geology or hydrology, the
             2887      construction and operation of hazardous waste treatment, disposal, and storage facilities
             2888      appears to be technically, environmentally, and economically feasible.
             2889          (3) (a) The preliminary siting plan prepared pursuant to Subsection (2) shall, before

             2892      published at least twice in two newspapers, if available, with general circulation in the areas of
             2893      the state that potentially will be affected by the plan.
             2894          (c) The board shall also issue a statewide news release that informs persons where
             2895      copies of the preliminary siting plan may be inspected or purchased at cost.
             2896          (d) After release of the preliminary siting plan, the board shall hold not less than two
             2897      public hearings in different areas of the state affected by the proposed siting plan to allow local
             2898      officials and other interested persons to express their views and submit information relevant to
             2899      the plan. The hearings shall be conducted not less than 60 nor more than 90 days after release
             2900      of the plan. Within 30 days after completion of the hearings, the board shall prepare and make
             2901      available for public inspection a summary of public comments.
             2902          (4) (a) The board, between 30 and 60 days after publication of the public comments,
             2903      shall prepare a final siting plan.
             2904          (b) The final siting plan shall be widely distributed to members of the public.
             2905          (c) The board, at any time between 30 and 60 days after release of the final plan, on its
             2906      own initiative or that of interested parties, shall hold not less than two public hearings in each
             2907      area of the state affected by the final plan to allow local officials and other interested persons to
             2908      express their views.
             2909          (d) The board, within 30 days after the last hearing, shall vote to adopt, adopt with
             2910      modification, or reject the final siting plan.
             2911          (5) (a) Any person adversely affected by the board's decision may seek judicial review
             2912      of the decision by filing a petition for review with the district court for Salt Lake County within
             2913      90 days after the board's decision.


             2914          (b) Judicial review may be had, however, only on the grounds that the board violated
             2915      the procedures set forth in this section, that it acted without or in excess of its powers, or that
             2916      its actions were arbitrary or capricious and not based on substantial evidence.
             2917          (6) If the final siting plan is adopted, the board shall cause it to be published.
             2918          (7) After publication of the final siting plan, the board shall engage in a continuous
             2919      monitoring and review process to ensure that the long-range needs of hazardous waste
             2920      producers likely to dispose of hazardous wastes in this state are met at a reasonable cost. An
             2921      annual review of the adequacy of the plan shall be conducted and published by the board.
             2922          (8) (a) If necessary, the board may amend the siting plan to provide additional sites or
