Installation of certain facilities by developer; reimbursement. Provides specific parameters to address the installation of reasonable and necessary sewerage and water facilities located on or outside the property limits of the land owned or controlled by the developer or subdivider that is necessitated or required, at least in part, by the utility needs of the development or subdivision, including reasonably anticipated capacity, extensions, or maintenance considerations of a utility service plan for the service area. Such developer or subdivider shall be entitled to reimbursement of its costs, including a new mechanism for connection fee reimbursement, by any subsequent developer or subdivider that utilizes the installed sewerage or water facility, except for those costs associated with the installing developer's pro rata share. The bill provides authority, at the developer's option, for reimbursement for the water and sewer facility in exchange for entitlement to water or sewer connection or capacity fees otherwise due to the locality imposed upon the developer's lots within its development or subdivision.
