Resolution #2014-26 IMPACT FEES

BACKGROUND

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)

ACTION

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.
