HB17-1198 - Increasing Special District Board To Seven Members

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the authority for a special district to increase the number of board members from five to seven.

The bill allows a special district having a 5-member board to increase the number of board members to 7 by the adoption of a resolution by the board and the approval of the resolution by the board of county commissioners or the governing body of the municipality that approved the service plan of the special district. If an increase is made, a board cannot be reduced back to 5 members. The bill also specifies the length of the initial term of each new special district board member and sets forth the election requirements.
