  1                                        AN ACT
  4    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  5        SECTION  1.  That  Section  40-106, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
  6    amended to read as follows:
  7        40-106.  DEFINITIONS -- E. (1) "Erect" means to construct,  build,  raise,
  8    assemble,  place,  affix,  create,  paint, draw or in any other way bring into
  9    being or establish, but does not include any of the foregoing activities  when
 10    performed  incident to the change of an advertising message or customary main-
 11    tenance of a sign. With  respect  to  certain  easements  held  by  the  state
 12    restricting  the  erection  of structures on certain lands, the state of Idaho
 13    and the department shall be deemed  to  have  waived  such  restrictions  with
 14    regard only to each sign erected prior to October 22, 1965.
 15        (2)  "Expenditure"  means the awarding of a contract, franchise or author-
 16    ity to another by a district, and every manner and means whereby  the  highway
 17    district  disburses  district  funds  or obligates itself to disburse district
 18    funds. "Expenditure" does not include disbursement of district funds to  regu-
 19    larly  employed  highway  district  employees, officials or agents, or for the
 20    performance of personal services to the district, or for  the  acquisition  of
 21    personal  property  through  a contract that has been competitively bid by the
 22    state of Idaho, one of its subdivisions, or an agency of the  federal  govern-
 23    ment.
 24        (3)  "Expense  of  the  public" means the expenditure of funds for roadway
 25    maintenance by any governmental agency, including funds expended by any agency
 26    of the federal government, so long as the agency allows public access over the
 27    roadway on which the funds were expended and such roadway is  not  located  on
 28    federal or state-owned land.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                          RS 11958

Grants to highway district the right already given to cities and 
counties to exclude personal service contracts from the definition 
of “expenditure”. Will allow highway districts the ability to enter 
into personal service contracts based upon competence and 
qualifications rather than lowest bid. A savings to the taxpayers 
of Ada County.
