             703           17-34-5. Budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds -- Annual audit.
             704          (1) (a) With respect to the budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds to furnish
             705      the municipal-type services and functions described in Section 17-34-1 to areas of the county
             706      outside the limits of incorporated towns and cities, including levying of taxes and imposition of
             707      fees and charges under Section 17-34-3 , each county legislative body shall separately budget
             708      and strictly account for and apportion to the costs of providing municipal-type services and
             709      functions the following:


             710          (i) the salaries of each county commissioner and the salaries and wages of all other
             711      elected and appointed county officials and employees;
             712          (ii) the operation and maintenance costs of each municipal-type service or function
             713      provided, set forth separately as line items in the Municipal Services Fund budget;
             714          (iii) the cost of renting or otherwise using capital facilities for the purposes of
             715      providing municipal-type services or functions; and
             716          (iv) all other costs including[, but not limited to,] administrative costs associated,
             717      directly or indirectly, with the costs of providing municipal-type services or functions.
             718          (b) At all times these funds and any expenditures from these funds shall be separately
             719      accounted for and utilized only for the purposes of providing municipal-type services and
             720      functions to areas of the county outside the limits of incorporated towns or cities.
             721          (2) To implement Subsection (1):
             722          (a) a budget shall be adopted and administered in the same manner as the budget for
             723      general purposes of the county which furnishes the municipal-type services and functions is
             724      adopted and administered, either as a part of the general budget or separate from it;
             725          (b) funds for the purposes of furnishing municipal-type services and functions under
             726      this chapter shall be collected, held, and administered in the same manner as other funds of the
             727      county are collected, held, and administered, but shall be segregated and separately maintained,
             728      except that where, in the judgment of the county legislative body, advantages inure to the fund
             729      from coinvestment of these funds and other funds also subject to control by the county
             730      legislative body, the county legislative body may direct this coinvestment, but in no event may
             731      the funds to furnish municipal-type services and functions or the income from their investment
             732      be used for purposes other than those described in Section 17-34-1 ;
             733          (c) expenditures shall be made in the same manner as other expenditures of the county
             734      are made; and
             735          (d) any taxes levied under this chapter shall be levied at the same time and in the same
             736      manner as other taxes of the county are levied.
             737          (3) An annual audit of the budgeting, accounting for, and disbursing of funds used to
             738      furnish municipal-type services and functions, shall be conducted by an independent certified
             739      public accountant.
             740          Section 29. Section 17-35b-303 is amended to read:


             741           17-35b-303. Community council form of county government.
             742          (1) The structural form of county government known as the "community council" form
             743      unites in a single consolidated city and county government the powers, duties, and functions
             744      which, immediately prior to its effective date, are vested in the county, the largest city in the
             745      county, such other cities and towns as elect to merge in it, and all special taxing districts, public
             746      authorities, service areas, and other local public entities functioning within the boundaries of
             747      the county, except school districts. The consolidated government shall have power to extend on
             748      a countywide basis any governmental service or function which is authorized by law or which
             749      the previous county, cities, and other local public agencies included therein were empowered to
             750      provide for their residents, but no such service shall be provided within an incorporated
             751      municipality which continues to provide that service for its own inhabitants, except upon a
             752      contract basis for the municipality, and no taxes, assessments, fees, or other charges shall be
             753      extended or collected within the municipality for the purpose of financing any service which is
             754      not provided by the consolidated government within the municipality. "Largest city," as used in
             755      this section, means a city or cities the population of which, as shown by the most recent
             756      decennial or special census, exceeds 35% of the total county population.
             757          (2) The incorporated cities and towns, other than the largest city, in the county shall
             758      retain independent corporate existence and shall continue to provide local services to their
             759      inhabitants of the type and to the extent provided in the plan, but any such city or town, by
             760      majority vote of its qualified voters, cast either concurrently with the election at which the plan
             761      is approved or subsequently to it, as provided by the governing body of the city or town, may
             762      cause the city or town to be dissolved and its powers, duties, and functions vested in the
             763      countywide government.
             764          (3) The county legislative body of the countywide government shall be a council
             765      composed of not less than five persons as specified in the plan, elected respectively from
             766      communities, which collectively include all of the territory within the county, having
             767      boundaries described in the plan embracing substantially equal populations. In addition to
             768      other powers vested in the countywide government by law or pursuant to this act, the county
             769      council shall have all of the legislative and policymaking powers which it is possible for the
             770      governing body of a county or a city to possess and which are not expressly denied by the
             771      constitution, by a general law applicable to all cities or all counties, or by a specific restriction


             772      in the plan itself.
             773          (4) The voters of each community shall elect a community council composed of the
             774      community's elected member of the county council, who shall be chairman of the community
             775      council, and not less than two nor more than four additional members elected either from
             776      districts of substantially equal population within the community, or at large therein, as may be
             777      provided in the plan. A community council shall have the power and duty, in conformity with
             778      guidelines prescribed by the county council, to adopt policies and formulate specific programs
             779      relating to and defining the kinds and levels of local governmental services necessary to satisfy
             780      the needs and desires of the citizens within the community, but a community council shall have
             781      no power to engage personnel or to acquire facilities, property, or equipment for the
             782      administration or performance of such services. Authorized programs for local governmental
             783      services which have been approved by a community council shall be submitted to the county
             784      council for implementation and shall be carried into effect by the county council and county
             785      executive unless, by a vote of not less than 3/4 of its entire membership, the county council
             786      determines that a particular program, in whole or in part, should be rejected as contrary to the
             787      general welfare of the county. A community council program for local governmental services
             788      within a community:
             789          (a) shall include a method or methods for financing such services;
             790          (b) may provide for supplying of such services by contract or by joint or cooperative
             791      action pursuant to Title 11, Chapter 13, Interlocal Cooperation Act, in which case the
             792      community council shall be considered a "public agency" within the meaning of said act; and
             793          (c) may provide for supplying of such services through the creation of service areas
             794      pursuant to Title 17B, Chapter 2a, Part 9, Service Area Act.
             795          (5) Notwithstanding Subsection (4), in any community which includes, in whole or in
             796      part, the territory of a city or town, no community council program for local government
             797      services above the minimum level of area-wide services provided countywide may be
             798      submitted to the county council for implementation unless it first is submitted to the governing
             799      body of each such city or town for review. Within 30 days after such submission, the governing
             800      body of the city or town:
             801          (a) may file with the community council a written statement of its comments,
             802      suggestions, and recommendations relating to the program, and the community council shall


             803      give due consideration thereto; or
             804          (b) may, by resolution or ordinance, provide that any designated part of the community
             805      council program relating to a service to be provided within the city or town shall be submitted
             806      to the voters thereof at a general or special election to be held therein within 60 days after the
             807      date of the resolution or ordinance. Any part of the program submitted to the voters of a city or
             808      town under this Subsection (5) [shall not] may not be included in the program as submitted to
             809      the county council unless it receives an approving vote at such election by majority of all votes
             810      cast on the question.
             811          (6) Except as provided herein, the qualifications, mode of election, term of office,
             812      method of removal, procedure to fill vacancies, compensation, and other appropriate provisions
             813      relating to membership on the county council or community councils shall be provided in the
             814      plan.
             815          (7) Upon the effective date of the plan and as provided in it, all properties and assets,
             816      whether tangible or intangible, and all obligations, debts, and liabilities, of those governmental
             817      entities which are merged into the new countywide government shall become vested and
             818      transferred by operation of law in and to the new countywide government. The properties,
             819      assets, obligations, debts, and liabilities of any city or town not merged into the new
             820      countywide government, so far as allocated, used, or incurred primarily to discharge a function
             821      which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of the city or town, shall likewise be
             822      vested in and transferred to the new countywide government. All transfers under this
             823      Subsection (7) shall be subject to equitable adjustments, conditions, and limitations provided in
             824      the plan and determined by procedures specified in the plan, but the contractual rights of any
             825      bondholder or creditor [shall not] may not be impaired.
             826          (8) Upon the effective date of the plan and as provided in it, nonelective officers and
             827      employees of governmental entities which are merged into the new countywide government
             828      and such officers and employees of nonmerged cities or towns whose qualifications and duties
             829      relate primarily to functions which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of those
             830      cities or towns, shall be blanketed in and transferred to the new countywide government as
             831      officers and employees of it. Standards and procedures relating to such personnel transfers, and
             832      for resolving disputes or grievances relating thereto, shall be provided in the plan.
             833          Section 30. Section 17-35b-304 is amended to read:


             834           17-35b-304. Consolidated city and county -- Structural form.
             835          (1) The structural form of county government known as the "consolidated city and
             836      county" form unites in a single consolidated city and county government the powers, duties,
             837      and functions which, immediately prior to its effective date, are vested in the county, the largest
             838      city in the county, such other cities and towns as elect to merge in it, and all special taxing
             839      districts, public authorities, county service areas, and other local public entities functioning
             840      within the boundaries of the county, except school districts. The consolidated government shall
             841      with the consent of the continuing municipalities have power to extend on a countywide basis
             842      any governmental service or function which is authorized by law or which the previous county,
             843      cities, and other local public agencies included in them were empowered to provide for their
             844      residents. No such service, however, shall be provided within an incorporated municipality
             845      which continues to provide that such service for its own inhabitants, except upon a contract
             846      basis for the municipality. No taxes, assessments, fees, or other charges shall be extended or
             847      collected by the consolidated government within any municipality for the purpose of financing
             848      any service which is not provided by the consolidated government within the municipality.
             849      "Largest city," as used in this section, means a city or cities the population of which, as shown
             850      by the most recent decennial or special census, exceeds 35% of the total county population.
             851          (2) The incorporated cities and towns, other than the largest city in the county, shall
             852      retain independent corporate existence and shall continue to provide local services to their
             853      inhabitants of the type and to the extent provided in the plan; but any such city or town by
             854      majority vote of its qualified voters cast either concurrently with the election at which the plan
             855      is approved or subsequently to it, as provided by the governing body of the city or town, may
             856      cause the city or town to be dissolved and its powers, duties, and functions vested in the
             857      consolidated government.
             858          (3) The governing body of the consolidated government shall be a council composed of
             859      not less than five persons elected as specified in the plan. In addition to other powers vested in
             860      the consolidated government by law or pursuant to this act, the county council shall have all the
             861      legislative and policymaking powers which it is possible for the governing body of a county or
             862      a city to possess and which are not expressly denied by the constitution, by general law
             863      applicable to all cities or all counties, or by a specific restriction in the plan itself.
             864          (4) Except as provided in this act, the qualifications, mode of election, term of office,


             865      method of removal, procedure to fill vacancies, compensation, or other appropriate provisions
             866      relating to membership on the county council shall be provided in the plan.
             867          (5) Upon the effective date of the plan, as provided in it, all properties and assets,
             868      whether tangible or intangible, and all obligations, debts, and liabilities of those governmental
             869      entities which are merged into the consolidated government shall become vested and
             870      transferred by operation of law in and to the consolidated government. The properties, assets,
             871      obligations, debts, and liabilities of any city or town not merged into the consolidated
             872      government, so far as allocated, used, or incurred primarily to discharge a function which under
             873      the plan will no longer be a responsibility of the city or town, shall likewise be vested in and
             874      transferred to the consolidated government. All transfers under this Subsection (5) shall be
             875      subject to equitable adjustments, conditions, and limitations provided in the plan and
             876      determined by procedures specified in the plan, but the contractual rights of any bondholder or
             877      creditor [shall not] may not be impaired.
             878          (6) Upon the effective date of the plan, and as provided in it, nonelective officers and
             879      employees of the governmental entities which are merged into the consolidated government
             880      and such officers and employees of nonmerged cities or towns whose qualifications and duties
             881      relate primarily to functions which under the plan will no longer be a responsibility of those
             882      cities or towns shall be blanketed in and transferred to the consolidated government as officers
             883      and employees of it. Standards and procedures relating to such personnel transfers and for
             884      resolving disputes or grievances relating to them shall be provided in the plan.

             896      request;
             897          (ii) (A) the total revenue requirements of the fund;
             898          (B) the part of the total revenue that will be derived from revenue sources other than

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

             1200          (e) state the reasons for withdrawal; and
             1201          (f) when the petition is filed with the local district board of trustees, be accompanied by
             1202      a map generally depicting the boundaries of the area proposed to be withdrawn and a legal
             1203      description of the area proposed to be withdrawn.
             1204          (2) (a) The local district may prepare an itemized list of expenses, other than attorney
             1205      expenses, that will necessarily be incurred by the local district in the withdrawal proceeding.


             1206      The itemized list of expenses may be submitted to the contact sponsor. If the list of expenses is
             1207      submitted to the contact sponsor within 21 days after receipt of the petition, the contact sponsor
             1208      on behalf of the petitioners shall be required to pay the expenses to the local district within 90
             1209      days of receipt. Until funds to cover the expenses are delivered to the local district, the district
             1210      will have no obligation to proceed with the withdrawal and the time limits on the district stated
             1211      in this part will be tolled. If the expenses are not paid within the 90 days, or within 90 days
             1212      from the conclusion of any arbitration under Subsection (2)(b), the petition requesting the
             1213      withdrawal shall be considered to have been withdrawn.
             1214          (b) If there is no agreement between the board of trustees of the local district and the
             1215      contact sponsor on the amount of expenses that will necessarily be incurred by the local district
             1216      in the withdrawal proceeding, either the board of trustees or the contact sponsor may submit
             1217      the matter to binding arbitration in accordance with Title 78B, Chapter 6, Part 2, Alternative

             1220      Title 78B, Chapter 11, Utah Uniform Arbitration Act.
             1221          (3) A signer of a petition may withdraw or, once withdrawn, reinstate the signer's
             1222      signature at any time before the public hearing under Section 17B-1-508 by submitting a
             1223      written withdrawal or reinstatement with the board of trustees of the local district in which the
             1224      area proposed to be withdrawn is located.
             1225          (4) If it reasonably appears that, if the withdrawal which is the subject of a petition
             1226      filed under Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(i) or (ii) is granted, it will be necessary for a
             1227      municipality to provide to the withdrawn area the service previously supplied by the local
             1228      district, the board of trustees of the local district may, within 21 days after receiving the
             1229      petition, notify the contact sponsor in writing that, before it will be considered by the board of
             1230      trustees, the petition [must] shall be presented to and approved by the governing body of the
             1231      municipality as provided in Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(iv) before it will be considered by the
             1232      local district board of trustees. If the notice is timely given to the contact sponsor, the petition
             1233      shall be considered to have been withdrawn until the municipality files a petition with the local
             1234      district under Subsection 17B-1-504 (1)(a)(iv).
             1235          (5) (a) After receiving the notice required by Subsection 17B-1-504 (2), unless
             1236      specifically allowed by law, a public entity may not make expenditures from public funds to


             1237      support or oppose the gathering of signatures on a petition for withdrawal.
             1238          (b) Nothing in this section prohibits a public entity from providing factual information
             1239      and analysis regarding a withdrawal petition to the public, so long as the information grants
             1240      equal access to both the opponents and proponents of the petition for withdrawal.
             1241          (c) Nothing in this section prohibits a public official from speaking, campaigning,
             1242      contributing personal money, or otherwise exercising the public official's constitutional rights.
             1243          Section 42. Section 17B-1-510 is amended to read:
             1244           17B-1-510. Resolution approving or rejecting withdrawal -- Criteria for approval
             1245      or rejection -- Terms and conditions.
             1246          (1) (a) On or before the date of the board meeting next following the public hearing

             1249      of trustees of the local district in which the area proposed to be withdrawn is located shall
             1250      adopt a resolution:

             1253          (b) Each resolution approving a withdrawal shall:
             1254          (i) include a legal description of the area proposed to be withdrawn;
             1255          (ii) state the effective date of the withdrawal; and
             1256          (iii) set forth the terms and conditions under Subsection (5), if any, of the withdrawal.
             1257          (c) Each resolution rejecting a withdrawal shall include a detailed explanation of the
             1258      board of trustees' reasons for the rejection.
             1259          (2) Unless denial of the petition is required under Subsection (3), the board of trustees
             1260      shall adopt a resolution approving the withdrawal of some or all of the area from the local
             1261      district if the board of trustees determines that:
             1262          (a) the area to be withdrawn does not and will not require the service that the local
             1263      district provides;
             1264          (b) the local district will not be able to provide service to the area to be withdrawn for
             1265      the reasonably foreseeable future; or
             1266          (c) the area to be withdrawn has obtained the same service that is provided by the local
             1267      district or a commitment to provide the same service that is provided by the local district from


             1268      another source.
             1269          (3) The board of trustees shall adopt a resolution denying the withdrawal if it
             1270      determines that the proposed withdrawal would:
             1271          (a) result in a breach or default by the local district under:
             1272          (i) any of its notes, bonds, or other debt or revenue obligations;
             1273          (ii) any of its agreements with entities which have insured, guaranteed, or otherwise
             1274      credit-enhanced any debt or revenue obligations of the local district; or
             1275          (iii) any of its agreements with the United States or any agency of the United States;
             1276      provided, however, that, if the local district has entered into an agreement with the United
             1277      States that requires the consent of the United States for a withdrawal of territory from the
             1278      district, a withdrawal under this part may occur if the written consent of the United States is
             1279      obtained and filed with the board of trustees;
             1280          (b) adversely affect the ability of the local district to make any payments or perform
             1281      any other material obligations under:
             1282          (i) any of its agreements with the United States or any agency of the United States;
             1283          (ii) any of its notes, bonds, or other debt or revenue obligations; or
             1284          (iii) any of its agreements with entities which have insured, guaranteed, or otherwise
             1285      credit-enhanced any debt or revenue obligations of the local district;
             1286          (c) result in the reduction or withdrawal of any rating on an outstanding note, bond, or
             1287      other debt or revenue obligation of the local district;
             1288          (d) create an island or peninsula of nondistrict territory within the local district or of
             1289      district territory within nondistrict territory that has a material adverse affect on the local
             1290      district's ability to provide service or materially increases the cost of providing service to the
             1291      remainder of the local district;
             1292          (e) materially impair the operations of the remaining local district; or
             1293          (f) require the local district to materially increase the fees it charges or property taxes
             1294      or other taxes it levies in order to provide to the remainder of the district the same level and
             1295      quality of service that was provided before the withdrawal.
             1296          (4) In determining whether the withdrawal would have any of the results described in
             1297      Subsection (3), the board of trustees may consider the cumulative impact that multiple
             1298      withdrawals over a specified period of time would have on the local district.


             1299          (5) (a) Despite the presence of one or more of the conditions listed in Subsection (3),
             1300      the board of trustees may approve a resolution withdrawing an area from the local district
             1301      imposing terms or conditions that mitigate or eliminate the conditions listed in Subsection (3),
             1302      including:
             1303          (i) a requirement that the owners of property located within the area proposed to be
             1304      withdrawn or residents within that area pay their proportionate share of any outstanding district
             1305      bond or other obligation as determined pursuant to Subsection (5)(b);
             1306          (ii) a requirement that the owners of property located within the area proposed to be
             1307      withdrawn or residents within that area make one or more payments in lieu of taxes, fees, or
             1308      assessments;
             1309          (iii) a requirement that the board of trustees and the receiving entity agree to reasonable
             1310      payment and other terms in accordance with Subsections (5)(f) through (g) regarding the
             1311      transfer to the receiving entity of district assets that the district used before withdrawal to
             1312      provide service to the withdrawn area but no longer needs because of the withdrawal; provided
             1313      that, if those district assets are allocated in accordance with Subsections (5)(f) through (g), the
             1314      district shall immediately transfer to the receiving entity on the effective date of the
             1315      withdrawal, all title to and possession of district assets allocated to the receiving entity; or
             1316          (iv) any other reasonable requirement considered to be necessary by the board of
             1317      trustees.
             1318          (b) Other than as provided for in Subsection 17B-1-511 (2), and except as provided in
             1319      Subsection (5)(e), in determining the proportionate share of outstanding bonded indebtedness
             1320      or other obligations under Subsection (5)(a)(i) and for purposes of determining the allocation
             1321      and transfer of district assets under Subsection (5)(a)(iii), the board of trustees and the
             1322      receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the
             1323      petition shall:
             1324          (i) engage engineering and accounting consultants chosen by the procedure provided in
             1325      Subsection (5)(d); provided however, that if the withdrawn area is not receiving service, an
             1326      engineering consultant need not be engaged; and
             1327          (ii) require the engineering and accounting consultants engaged under Subsection
             1328      (5)(b)(i) to communicate in writing to the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases
             1329      where there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition the information


             1330      required by Subsections (5)(f) through (h).
             1331          (c) For purposes of this Subsection (5):
             1332          (i) "accounting consultant" means a certified public accountant or a firm of certified
             1333      public accountants with the expertise necessary to make the determinations required under
             1334      Subsection (5)(h); and
             1335          (ii) "engineering consultant" means a person or firm that has the expertise in the
             1336      engineering aspects of the type of system by which the withdrawn area is receiving service that
             1337      is necessary to make the determination required under Subsections (5)(f) and (g).
             1338          (d) (i) Unless the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is
             1339      no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition agree on an engineering
             1340      consultant and an accounting consultant, each consultant shall be chosen from a list of
             1341      consultants provided by the Consulting Engineers Council of Utah and the Utah Association of
             1342      Certified Public Accountants, respectively, as provided in this Subsection (5)(d).
             1343          (ii) A list under Subsection (5)(d)(i) may not include a consultant who has had a
             1344      contract for services with the district or the receiving entity during the two-year period
             1345      immediately before the list is provided to the local district.
             1346          (iii) Within 20 days of receiving the lists described in Subsection (5)(d)(i), the board of
             1347      trustees shall eliminate the name of one engineering consultant from the list of engineering
             1348      consultants and the name of one accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants
             1349      and shall notify the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors
             1350      of the petition in writing of the eliminations.
             1351          (iv) Within three days of receiving notification under Subsection (5)(d), the receiving
             1352      entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of the petition shall eliminate
             1353      another name of an engineering consultant from the list of engineering consultants and another
             1354      name of an accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants and shall notify the
             1355      board of trustees in writing of the eliminations.
             1356          (v) The board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no
             1357      receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition shall continue to alternate between
             1358      them, each eliminating the name of one engineering consultant from the list of engineering
             1359      consultants and the name of one accounting consultant from the list of accounting consultants
             1360      and providing written notification of the eliminations within three days of receiving


             1361      notification of the previous notification, until the name of only one engineering consultant
             1362      remains on the list of engineering consultants and the name of only one accounting consultant
             1363      remains on the list of accounting consultants.
             1364          (e) The requirement under Subsection (5)(b) to engage engineering and accounting
             1365      consultants does not apply if the board of trustees and the receiving entity, or in cases where
             1366      there is no receiving entity, the board and the sponsors of the petition agree on the allocations
             1367      that are the engineering consultant's responsibility under Subsection (5)(f) or the
             1368      determinations that are the accounting consultant's responsibility under Subsection (5)(h);
             1369      provided however, that if engineering and accounting consultants are engaged, the district and
             1370      the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the district and the sponsors
             1371      of the petition shall equally share the cost of the engineering and accounting consultants.
             1372          (f) (i) The engineering consultant shall allocate the district assets between the district
             1373      and the receiving entity as provided in this Subsection (5)(f).
             1374          (ii) The engineering consultant shall allocate:
             1375          (A) to the district those assets reasonably needed by the district to provide to the area
             1376      of the district remaining after withdrawal the kind, level, and quality of service that was
             1377      provided before withdrawal; and
             1378          (B) to the receiving entity those assets reasonably needed by the receiving entity to
             1379      provide to the withdrawn area the kind and quality of service that was provided before
             1380      withdrawal.
             1381          (iii) If the engineering consultant determines that both the local district and the
             1382      receiving entity reasonably need a district asset to provide to their respective areas the kind and
             1383      quality of service provided before withdrawal, the engineering consultant shall:
             1384          (A) allocate the asset between the local district and the receiving entity according to
             1385      their relative needs, if the asset is reasonably susceptible of division; or
             1386          (B) allocate the asset to the local district, if the asset is not reasonably susceptible of
             1387      division.
             1388          (g) All district assets remaining after application of Subsection (5)(f) shall be allocated
             1389      to the local district.
             1390          (h) (i) The accounting consultant shall determine the withdrawn area's proportionate
             1391      share of any redemption premium and the principal of and interest on:


             1392          (A) the local district's revenue bonds that were outstanding at the time the petition was
             1393      filed;
             1394          (B) the local district's general obligation bonds that were outstanding at the time the
             1395      petition was filed; and
             1396          (C) the local district's general obligation bonds that:
             1397          (I) were outstanding at the time the petition was filed; and
             1398          (II) are treated as revenue bonds under Subsection (5)(i); and
             1399          (D) the district's bonds that were issued prior to the date the petition was filed to refund
             1400      the district's revenue bonds, general obligation bonds, or general obligation bonds treated as
             1401      revenue bonds.
             1402          (ii) For purposes of Subsection (5)(h)(i), the withdrawn area's proportionate share of
             1403      redemption premium, principal, and interest shall be the amount that bears the same
             1404      relationship to the total redemption premium, principal, and interest for the entire district that
             1405      the average annual gross revenues from the withdrawn area during the three most recent
             1406      complete fiscal years before the filing of the petition bears to the average annual gross revenues
             1407      from the entire district for the same period.
             1408          (i) For purposes of Subsection (5)(h)(i), a district general obligation bond shall be
             1409      treated as a revenue bond if:
             1410          (i) the bond is outstanding on the date the petition was filed; and
             1411          (ii) the principal of and interest on the bond, as of the date the petition was filed, had
             1412      been paid entirely from local district revenues and not from a levy of ad valorem tax.
             1413          (j) (i) Before the board of trustees of the local district files a resolution approving a
             1414      withdrawal, the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of
             1415      the petition shall irrevocably deposit government obligations, as defined in Subsection
             1416      11-27-2 (6), into an escrow trust fund the principal of and interest on which are sufficient to
             1417      provide for the timely payment of the amount determined by the accounting consultant under
             1418      Subsection (5)(h) or in an amount mutually agreeable to the board of trustees of the local
             1419      district and the receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the board and the
             1420      sponsors of the petition. Notwithstanding Subsection 17B-1-512 (1), the board of trustees
             1421      [shall not] may not be required to file a resolution approving a withdrawal until the
             1422      requirements for establishing and funding an escrow trust fund in this Subsection (5)(j)(i) have


             1423      been met; provided that, if the escrow trust fund has not been established and funded within
             1424      180 days after the board of trustees passes a resolution approving a withdrawal, the resolution
             1425      approving the withdrawal shall be void.
             1426          (ii) Concurrently with the creation of the escrow, the receiving entity, or in cases where
             1427      there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of the petition shall provide to the board of trustees of
             1428      the local district:
             1429          (A) a written opinion of an attorney experienced in the tax-exempt status of municipal
             1430      bonds stating that the establishment and use of the escrow to pay the proportionate share of the
             1431      district's outstanding revenue bonds and general obligation bonds that are treated as revenue
             1432      bonds will not adversely affect the tax-exempt status of the bonds; and
             1433          (B) a written opinion of an independent certified public accountant verifying that the
             1434      principal of and interest on the deposited government obligations are sufficient to provide for
             1435      the payment of the withdrawn area's proportionate share of the bonds as provided in Subsection
             1436      (5)(h).
             1437          (iii) The receiving entity, or in cases where there is no receiving entity, the sponsors of
             1438      the petition shall bear all expenses of the escrow and the redemption of the bonds.
             1439          (iv) The receiving entity may issue bonds under Title 11, Chapter 14, Local
             1440      Government Bonding Act, and Title 11, Chapter 27, Utah Refunding Bond Act, to fund the
             1441      escrow.
             1442          (6) A requirement imposed by the board of trustees as a condition to withdrawal under
             1443      Subsection (5) shall, in addition to being expressed in the resolution, be reduced to a duly
             1444      authorized and executed written agreement between the parties to the withdrawal.
             1445          (7) An area that is the subject of a withdrawal petition under Section 17B-1-504 that
             1446      results in a board of trustees resolution denying the proposed withdrawal may not be the
             1447      subject of another withdrawal petition under Section 17B-1-504 for two years after the date of
             1448      the board of trustees resolution denying the withdrawal.
             1449          Section 43. Section 17B-1-512 is amended to read:
             1450           17B-1-512. Filing of notice and plat -- Recording requirements -- Contest period

             1521      (3), within 60 days after the publication or after the board of trustees' denial of the request
             1522      under Subsection (5);
             1523          (ii) if the resolution is not published pursuant to Subsection (3), within 60 days after
             1524      the resolution approving or denying the withdrawal is adopted; or

             2097          (7) If the owner or operator of a source subject to this section fails to timely pay an
             2098      annual emissions fee, the executive secretary may:
             2099          (a) impose a penalty of not more than 50% of the fee, in addition to the fee, plus
             2100      interest on the fee computed at 12% annually; or
             2101          (b) revoke the operating permit.
             2102          (8) The owner or operator of a source subject to this section may contest an emissions
             2103      fee assessment or associated penalty in an adjudicative hearing under the Title 63G, Chapter 4,
             2104      Administrative Procedures Act, and Section 19-1-301 , as provided in this Subsection (8).


             2105          (a) The owner or operator [must] shall pay the fee under protest prior to being entitled
             2106      to a hearing. Payment of an emissions fee or penalty under protest is not a waiver of the right
             2107      to contest the fee or penalty under this section.
             2108          (b) A request for a hearing under this Subsection (8) shall be made after payment of the
             2109      emissions fee and within six months after the emissions fee was due.
             2110          (9) To reinstate an operating permit revoked under Subsection (7) the owner or
             2111      operator shall pay all outstanding emissions fees, a penalty of not more than 50% of all
             2112      outstanding fees, and interest on the outstanding emissions fees computed at 12% annually.
             2113          (10) All emissions fees and penalties collected by the department under this section
             2114      shall be deposited in the General Fund as the Air Pollution Operating Permit Program
             2115      dedicated credit to be used solely to pay for the reasonable direct and indirect costs incurred by
             2116      the department in developing and administering the program and the small business assistance
             2117      program under Section 19-2-109.2 .
             2118          (11) Failure of the executive secretary to act on any operating permit application or
             2119      renewal is a final administrative action only for the purpose of obtaining judicial review by any
             2120      of the following persons to require the executive secretary to take action on the permit or its
             2121      renewal without additional delay:
             2122          (a) the applicant;
             2123          (b) any person who participated in the public comment process; or
             2124          (c) any other person who could obtain judicial review of that action under applicable
             2125      law.
             2126          Section 50. Section 19-2-113 is amended to read:
             2127           19-2-113. Variances -- Judicial review.
             2128          (1) (a) Any person who owns or is in control of any plant, building, structure,
             2129      establishment, process, or equipment may apply to the board for a variance from its rules.
             2130          (b) The board may grant the requested variance following an announced public
             2131      meeting, if it finds, after considering the endangerment to human health and safety and other
             2132      relevant factors, that compliance with the rules from which variance is sought would produce
             2133      serious hardship without equal or greater benefits to the public.
             2134          (2) A variance may not be granted under this section until the board has considered the
             2135      relative interests of the applicant, other owners of property likely to be affected by the


             2136      discharges, and the general public.
             2137          (3) Any variance or renewal of a variance shall be granted within the requirements of
             2138      Subsection (1) and for time periods and under conditions consistent with the reasons for it, and
             2139      within the following limitations:
             2140          (a) if the variance is granted on the grounds that there are no practicable means known
             2141      or available for the adequate prevention, abatement, or control of the air pollution involved, it
             2142      shall be only until the necessary means for prevention, abatement, or control become known
             2143      and available, and subject to the taking of any substitute or alternate measures that the board
             2144      may prescribe;
             2145          (b) (i) if the variance is granted on the grounds that compliance with the requirements
             2146      from which variance is sought will require that measures, because of their extent or cost, must
             2147      be spread over a long period of time, the variance shall be granted for a reasonable time that, in
             2148      the view of the board, is required for implementation of the necessary measures; and
             2149          (ii) a variance granted on this ground shall contain a timetable for the implementation
             2150      of remedial measures in an expeditious manner and shall be conditioned on adherence to the
             2151      timetable; or
             2152          (c) if the variance is granted on the ground that it is necessary to relieve or prevent
             2153      hardship of a kind other than that provided for in Subsection (3)(a) or (b), it [shall not] may not
             2154      be granted for more than one year.
             2155          (4) (a) Any variance granted under this section may be renewed on terms and
             2156      conditions and for periods that would be appropriate for initially granting a variance.
             2157          (b) If a complaint is made to the board because of the variance, a renewal may not be
             2158      granted unless, following an announced public meeting, the board finds that renewal is
             2159      justified.
             2160          (c) To receive a renewal, an applicant shall submit a request for agency action to the
             2161      board requesting a renewal.
             2162          (d) Immediately upon receipt of an application for renewal, the board shall give public
             2163      notice of the application as required by its rules.
             2164          (5) (a) A variance or renewal is not a right of the applicant or holder but may be
             2165      granted at the board's discretion.
             2166          (b) A person aggrieved by the board's decision may obtain judicial review.


             2167          (c) Venue for judicial review of informal adjudicative proceedings is in the district
             2168      court in which the air contaminant source is situated.
             2169          (6) (a) The board may review any variance during the term for which it was granted.
             2170          (b) The review procedure is the same as that for an original application.
             2171          (c) The variance may be revoked upon a finding that:
             2172          (i) the nature or amount of emission has changed or increased; or
             2173          (ii) if facts existing at the date of the review had existed at the time of the original
             2174      application, the variance would not have been granted.
             2175          (7) Nothing in this section and no variance or renewal granted pursuant to it shall be
             2176      construed to prevent or limit the application of the emergency provisions and procedures of
             2177      Section 19-2-112 to any person or property.
             2178          Section 51. Section 19-2-115 is amended to read:
             2179           19-2-115. Violations -- Penalties -- Reimbursement for expenses.
             2180          (1) As used in this section, the terms "knowingly," "willfully," and "criminal
             2181      negligence" shall mean as defined in Section 76-2-103 .

             2183      under this chapter is subject in a civil proceeding to a penalty not to exceed $10,000 per day for
             2184      each violation.
             2185          (b) Subsection (2)(a) also applies to rules made under the authority of Section
             2186      19-2-104 , for implementation of 15 U.S.C.A. 2601 et seq., Toxic Substances Control Act,
             2187      Subchapter II - Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response.
             2188          (c) Penalties assessed for violations described in 15 U.S.C.A. 2647, Toxic Substances
             2189      Control Act, Subchapter II - Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response, may not exceed the

             2200      report required by permit; or
             2201          (b) renders inaccurate any monitoring device or method required to be maintained by
             2202      this chapter or applicable rules made under this chapter.
             2203          (5) Any fine or penalty assessed under Subsections (2) or (3) is in lieu of any penalty
             2204      under Section 19-2-109.1 .
             2205          (6) A person who willfully violates Section 19-2-120 is guilty of a class A
             2206      misdemeanor.
             2207          (7) A person who knowingly violates any requirement of an applicable implementation
             2208      plan adopted by the board, more than 30 days after having been notified in writing by the

             2214      subsequent offenses.
             2215          (8) (a) As used in this section:
             2216          (i) "Hazardous air pollutant" means any hazardous air pollutant listed under 42 U.S.C.
             2217      7412 or any extremely hazardous substance listed under 42 U.S.C. 11002(a)(2).
             2218          (ii) "Organization" means a legal entity, other than a government, established or

             2240          (e) (i) A defendant who is an individual is considered to have acted knowingly under
             2241      Subsections (8)(c) and (d), if:
             2242          (A) the defendant's conduct placed another person in imminent danger of death or
             2243      serious bodily injury; and
             2244          (B) the defendant was aware of or believed that there was an imminent danger of death
             2245      or serious bodily injury to another person.

             2254          (A) an occupation, a business, a profession; or
             2255          (B) medical treatment or medical or scientific experimentation conducted by
             2256      professionally approved methods and the other person was aware of the risks involved prior to
             2257      giving consent.
             2258          (ii) The defendant has the burden of proof to establish any affirmative defense under
             2259      this Subsection (8)(f) and [must] shall prove that defense by a preponderance of the evidence.


             2260          (9) (a) Except as provided in Subsection (9)(b), and unless prohibited by federal law,
             2261      all penalties assessed and collected under the authority of this section shall be deposited in the
             2262      General Fund.
             2263          (b) The department may reimburse itself and local governments from money collected
             2264      from civil penalties for extraordinary expenses incurred in environmental enforcement
             2265      activities.
             2266          (c) The department shall regulate reimbursements by making rules in accordance with
             2267      Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, that:
             2268          (i) define qualifying environmental enforcement activities; and
             2269          (ii) define qualifying extraordinary expenses.
             2270          Section 52. Section 19-3-302 is amended to read:
             2271           19-3-302. Legislative intent.
             2272          (1) (a) The state [of Utah] enacts this part to prevent the placement of any high-level
             2273      nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste in Utah. The state also recognizes that
             2274      high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste may be placed within the
             2275      exterior boundaries of the state, pursuant to a license from the federal government, or by the
             2276      federal government itself, in violation of this state law.
             2277          (b) Due to this possibility, the state also enacts provisions in this part to regulate
             2278      transportation, transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, and disposal of any high-level
             2279      nuclear waste and greater than class C radioactive waste in Utah, thereby asserting and
             2280      protecting the state's interests in environmental and economic resources consistent with 42
             2281      U.S.C.A. 2011 et seq., Atomic Energy Act and 42 U.S.C.A. 10101 et seq., Nuclear Waste
             2282      Policy Act, should the federal government decide to authorize any entity to operate, or operate
             2283      itself, in violation of this state law.
             2284          (2) Neither the Atomic Energy Act nor the Nuclear Waste Policy Act provides for
             2285      siting a large privately owned high-level nuclear waste transfer, storage, decay in storage, or
             2286      treatment facility away from the vicinity of the reactors. The Atomic Energy Act and the
             2287      Nuclear Waste Policy Act specifically define authorized storage and disposal programs and
             2288      activities. The state [of Utah] in enacting this part is not preempted by federal law, since any
             2289      proposed facilities that would be sited in Utah are not contemplated or authorized by federal
             2290      law and, in any circumstance, this part is not contrary to or inconsistent with federal law or


             2291      congressional intent.
             2292          (3) The state [of Utah] has environmental and economic interests which do not involve
             2293      nuclear safety regulation, and which [must] shall be considered and complied with in siting a
             2294      high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste transfer, storage, decay in
             2295      storage, treatment, or disposal facility and in transporting these wastes in the state.
             2296          (4) An additional primary purpose of this part is to ensure protection of the state from
             2297      nonradiological hazards associated with any waste transportation, transfer, storage, decay in
             2298      storage, treatment, or disposal.
             2299          (5) The state recognizes the sovereign rights of Indian tribes within the state [of Utah].
             2300      However, any proposed transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility
             2301      located on a reservation which directly affects and impacts state interests by creating
             2302      off-reservation effects such as potential or actual degradation of soils and groundwater,
             2303      potential or actual contamination of surface water, pollution of the ambient air, emergency
             2304      planning costs, impacts on development, agriculture, and ranching, and increased
             2305      transportation activity, is subject to state jurisdiction.
             2306          (6) There is no tradition of regulation by the Indian tribes in Utah of high-level nuclear
             2307      waste or higher than class C radioactive waste. The state does have a long history of regulation
             2308      of radioactive sources and natural resources and in the transfer, storage, treatment, and
             2309      transportation of materials and wastes throughout the state. The state finds that its interests are
             2310      even greater when nonmembers of an Indian tribe propose to locate a facility on tribal trust
             2311      lands primarily to avoid state regulation and state authorities under federal law.
             2312          (7) (a) This part is not intended to modify existing state requirements for obtaining
             2313      environmental approvals, permits, and licenses, including surface and groundwater permits and
             2314      air quality permits, when the permits are necessary under state and federal law to construct and
             2315      operate a high-level nuclear waste or greater than class C radioactive waste transfer, storage,
             2316      decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility.
             2317          (b) Any source of air pollution proposed to be located within the state, including
             2318      sources located within the boundaries of an Indian reservation, which will potentially or
             2319      actually have a direct and significant impact on ambient air within the state, is required to
             2320      obtain an approval order and permit from the state under Section 19-2-108 .
             2321          (c) Any facility which will potentially or actually have a significant impact on the


             2322      state's surface or groundwater resources is required to obtain a permit under Section 19-5-107
             2323      even if located within the boundaries of an Indian reservation.
             2324          (8) The state finds that the transportation, transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment,
             2325      and disposal of high-level nuclear waste and greater than class C radioactive waste within the
             2326      state is an ultra-hazardous activity which carries with it the risk that any release of waste may
             2327      result in enormous economic and human injury.
             2328          Section 53. Section 19-3-308 is amended to read:
             2329           19-3-308. Application fee and annual fees.
             2330          (1) (a) Any application for a waste transfer, storage, decay in storage, treatment, or
             2331      disposal facility shall be accompanied by an initial fee of $5,000,000.
             2332          (b) The applicant shall subsequently pay an additional fee to cover the costs to the state
             2333      associated with review of the application, including costs to the state and the state's contractors
             2334      for permitting, technical, administrative, legal, safety, and emergency response reviews,
             2335      planning, training, infrastructure, and other impact analyses, studies, and services required to
             2336      evaluate a proposed facility.
             2337          (2) For the purpose of funding the state oversight and inspection of any waste transfer,
             2338      storage, decay in storage, treatment, or disposal facility, and to establish state infrastructure,
             2339      including[, but not limited to] providing for state Department of Environmental Quality, state
             2340      Department of Transportation, state Department of Public Safety, and other state agencies'
             2341      technical, administrative, legal, infrastructure, maintenance, training, safety, socio-economic,
             2342      law enforcement, and emergency resources necessary to respond to these facilities, the owner
             2343      or operator shall pay to the state a fee as established by department rule under Section
             2344      63J-1-504 , to be assessed:
             2345          (a) per ton of storage cask and high-level nuclear waste per year for storage, decay in
             2346      storage, treatment, or disposal of high-level nuclear waste;
             2347          (b) per ton of transportation cask and high-level nuclear waste for each transfer of
             2348      high-level nuclear waste;
             2349          (c) per ton of storage cask and greater than class C radioactive waste for the storage,
             2350      decay in storage, treatment, or disposal of greater than class C radioactive waste; and
             2351          (d) per ton of transportation cask and greater than class C radioactive waste for each
             2352      transfer of greater than class C radioactive waste.


             2353          (3) Funds collected under Subsection (2) shall be placed in the Nuclear Accident and
             2354      Hazard Compensation Account, created in Subsection 19-3-309 (3).
             2355          (4) The owner or operator of the facility shall pay the fees imposed under this section
             2356      to the department on or before the 15th day of the month following the month in which the fee
             2357      accrued.
             2358          (5) Annual fees due under this part accrue on July 1 of each year and shall be paid to
             2359      the department by July 15 of that year.
             2360          Section 54. Section 19-4-112 is amended to read:
             2361           19-4-112. Limit on authority of department and board to control irrigation
             2362      facilities -- Precautions relating to nonpotable water systems.
             2363          (1) Except as provided in this section and in Section 19-5-104 , nothing contained in
             2364      this chapter authorizes the department or board to:
             2365          (a) exercise administrative control over water used solely for irrigation purposes,
             2366      whether conveyed in pipes, ditches, canals, or by other facilities; or
             2367          (b) adopt rules relating to the construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities for
             2368      conveying irrigation water to the place of use.

             2773      would be less detrimental to the public health or safety or to the quality of the environment;
             2774      and
             2775          (c) compliance history of an owner or operator of a proposed commercial
             2776      nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility, which may be
             2777      applied by the executive secretary in a nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste operation plan
             2778      decision, including any plan conditions.
             2779          (11) The executive secretary may not approve a commercial nonhazardous solid or
             2780      hazardous waste facility operation plan unless based on the application, and in addition to the
             2781      determination required in Subsections (9) and (10), the executive secretary determines that:
             2782          (a) the probable beneficial environmental effect of the facility to the state outweighs
             2783      the probable adverse environmental effect; and
             2784          (b) there is a need for the facility to serve industry within the state.
             2785          (12) Approval of a nonhazardous solid or hazardous waste operation plan may be
             2786      revoked, in whole or in part, if the person to whom approval of the plan has been given fails to

             2877          (ii) The board [shall not] may not exclude any area of the state from consideration in
             2878      the selection of potential sites but, to the maximum extent possible, shall give preference to
             2879      sites located in areas already dedicated through zoning or other land use regulations to


             2880      industrial use or to areas located near industrial uses. However, the board shall give
             2881      consideration to excluding an area designated for disposal of uranium mill tailings or for
             2882      disposal of nuclear wastes unless the proposed disposal site is approved by the affected county
             2883      through its county executive and county legislative body.
             2884          (e) The board shall also analyze and identify areas of the state where, due to the
             2885      concentration of industrial waste generation processes or to favorable geology or hydrology, the
             2886      construction and operation of hazardous waste treatment, disposal, and storage facilities
             2887      appears to be technically, environmentally, and economically feasible.
             2888          (3) (a) The preliminary siting plan prepared pursuant to Subsection (2) shall, before

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


             2911      of the decision by filing a petition for review with the district court for Salt Lake County within
             2912      90 days after the board's decision.
             2913          (b) Judicial review may be had, however, only on the grounds that the board violated
             2914      the procedures set forth in this section, that it acted without or in excess of its powers, or that
             2915      its actions were arbitrary or capricious and not based on substantial evidence.
             2916          (6) If the final siting plan is adopted, the board shall cause it to be published.
             2917          (7) After publication of the final siting plan, the board shall engage in a continuous
             2918      monitoring and review process to ensure that the long-range needs of hazardous waste
             2919      producers likely to dispose of hazardous wastes in this state are met at a reasonable cost. An
             2920      annual review of the adequacy of the plan shall be conducted and published by the board.
             2921          (8) (a) If necessary, the board may amend the siting plan to provide additional sites or
