8 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
9 SECTION 1. That Chapter 14, Title 40, Idaho Code, be, and the same is
10 hereby amended by the addition thereto of a NEW SECTION, to be known and des-
11 ignated as Section 40-1406A, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:
12 40-1406A. SUMMARIZATION OF ORDINANCES PERMITTED -- REQUIREMENTS. (1) In
13 lieu of publishing the entire ordinance under section 40-1406, Idaho Code, the
14 highway district may publish a summary of the ordinance, which summary shall
15 be approved by the governing body and which shall include:
16 (a) The name of the highway district;
17 (b) The formal identification or citation number of the ordinance;
18 (c) A descriptive title;
19 (d) A summary of the principal provisions of the ordinance, including
20 penalties provided and the effective date;
21 (e) Any other information necessary to provide an accurate summary; and
22 (f) A statement that the full text is available at the highway district
24 (2) Subsection (1) of this section notwithstanding, whenever any publica-
25 tion is made under this section and the proposed or adopted ordinance contains
26 legal descriptions, or contains provisions regarding taxation or penalties
27 concerning real property, then the sections containing this matter shall be
28 published in full and shall not be summarized. When a legal description of
29 real property is involved, the notice shall also include the street address or
30 addresses of the property described, if any. In the cases of descriptions cov-
31 ering one (1) or more street addresses, the street addresses of the corners of
32 the area described shall meet this requirement. Maps may be substituted for
33 written legal description of property provided they contain sufficient detail
34 to clearly define the area with which the ordinance is concerned.
35 (3) Before submission of a summary to a newspaper for publication under
36 this section, the legal advisor of the highway district shall sign a state-
37 ment, which shall be filed with the ordinance, that the summary is true and
38 complete and provides adequate notice to the public.
39 (4) The full text of any ordinance which is summarized by publication
40 under this section shall be promptly provided by the highway district clerk to
41 any citizen on personal request.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation amends Idaho Code section 1406, Title 40, to allow single
countywide highway districts to publish a summary of an ordinance, rather than
the entire text. This change would .save the highway district advertising costs,
especially on large ordinances.
None to the general fund.
