|Third Party Municipal Contracts
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that would require a municipality to contract with at least three third party agencies. It will amend the UCC act to eliminate the current “monopoly”.
Under current law, municipalities that opt to administer the UCC can do it with their own employees, enter into a joint agreement with other municipalities, or hire a third party agency to administer their program.
This legislation reigns in excessive fees that many municipalities charge their constituents for inspections by requiring them to use the fees solely to cover the costs of program enforcement.
It will give residents the opportunity to have inspections completed in a reasonable priced and competitive manner.
If you have any questions, please contact my office at 787-8927.
Introduced as SB663
