Resolution #2014-26 IMPACT FEES


For cities and towns with impact fees, the fees must be recalculated every two (2) years. This period is too short for recalculation, especially since the fees cover a five year period. (7-6-1602, MCA)

Also, the impact fee advisory committee is required to have a certified public accountant as a member. It is difficult and in many cases impossible to find a certified public accountant willing to serve as a volunteer on that committee. (7-6-1604, MCA)


The League will support legislation to extend the impact fee recalculation to a longer period and remove the requirement that the advisory committee has a certified public accountant as a member.
