House Local Government Committee Takes Testimony on Sewer Tap-In Fee Legislation

Posted on October 29, 2013 by Dene Westbrook

HB 4494 sponsored by Representative Joe Graves was taken up for testimony in House Local Government Committee. This bill would limit a municipalities ability to retroactively charge a sewer tap-in fee to two years from the time a building permit is issued. The Michigan Municipal League has some serious concerns with this legislation and is discussing potential changes with the sponsor. During committee, along with the City of Linden, we expressed our concerns and opposition to the bill as introduced.
