Water and waste authorities; rates. Clarifies the ability of a water or waste authority to fix rates for services that are furnished by a refuse collection and disposal system. The bill expands the list of rate-setting powers that require a public hearing by adding the rate-setting power found in subdivision 10 of 15.2-5114, a power that includes the establishment of incentives for green roofs. The bill combines the two parallel processes found in current law for the setting of rates for sewage disposal and refuse collection, and it reduces the period for publication of notice of a rate-setting hearing from 60 days to 14 days. Finally, the bill provides that no rate established before January 1, 2013, shall be invalidated because of a failure to provide the required public notice. The bill also makes technical changes.
