Description

Joint town and county powers. Clarifies that where a town and county generally enjoy the same power, a county power applies in or as to a town when the county power is granted and exercised for a county-wide purpose, as determined by the county. A town may by ordinance negate the application of the exercised county power in or as to the town; may itself exercise the joint power, preempting the exercise of the county's power in or as to the town; or may adopt and affirm the application of the exercised county power in or as to the town. Where a county and a town generally enjoy the same power, and the county power is granted and exercised for a local or municipal purpose that expressly or impliedly only applies in the unincorporated county, the county power does not apply in or as to the town absent the town's ordinance so applying the exercised county power in or as to the town. The bill also provides that this act is declarative of existing law. Read the Bill »
