SENATE BILL NO. 225
INTRODUCED BY J. HERTEL
AN ACT EXPANDING THE AUTHORITY OF A BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO INCLUDE ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN ROAD IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS; CLARIFYING THE TYPE OF ROAD THAT CAN BE INCLUDED IN A ROAD IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT; AND AMENDING SECTION 7-14-2901, MCA.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MONTANA:
Section 1. Section 7-14-2901, MCA, is amended to read:
"7-14-2901. Road improvement district -- purpose -- benefited property defined. (1) The board of county commissioners may establish road improvement districts in those areas of the county that are not within the limits of an incorporated city or town.
(2) The purpose of a road improvement district is to allow a public entity to assess owners of parcels of land directly
benefited by a proposed public road or a public road within the county that is not a county road or a highway to provide for
road's construction, reconstruction, upgrade, repair, or maintenance of the proposed public road or a public road that
does not meet the standards of 7-14-2111 or 7-14-2112. The county surveyor must determine that it would be physically
impractical to improve the road to standard county road specifications.
(3) For the purposes of this part, "benefited property" means land within the district that receives a direct benefit from the road for which the road improvement district was created. A parcel of land is not benefited property if the parcel is within the district solely because the road passes over the property to provide access to benefited property. A parcel of land within the district used solely for agricultural purposes is not considered benefited property."
