10 ignated as Section 42-3240, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:
11 42-3240. OBLIGATION TO SERVE -- ANNEXED PROPERTY. (1) Owners of real
12 property within any district shall, upon written application submitted to the
13 district, be entitled to all services provided through the district. As a con-
14 dition of providing services the district may, in conformance with its poli-
15 cies, require that the reasonable and direct cost of any additional capacity
16 or infrastructure necessary for providing services be paid for by the owner of
17 the real property.
18 (2) In regard to real property that has been annexed into a district,
19 applications received by the district for new or additional service within a
20 period of three (3) years following the time the real property was annexed
21 into the district shall be governed by the rules, policies and fee schedules
22 in place at the time the petition for annexation was received by the district.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to remove a provision that allows
sewer and water districts to annex property into their district and
then decline to provide them with service, or agree to provide service
under vastly different terms or conditions from those in place when the
annexation petition was received and accepted by the board.
