County assessment of effects of major recovery or remedial action at storage or disposal site for chemical agents
  • annual fee

(1) If a site for the storage or disposal of chemical agents is located within a county and if a major recovery or major remedial action is anticipated to occur at the site, the governing body of the county may conduct an assessment of the social and economic effects on communities within the county that are likely to occur by reason of the major recovery or major remedial action.

(2) When assessing the effects on communities caused by the major recovery or major remedial action, the county governing body may consider, among other matters, the following:

(a) Effects upon roads and streets;

(b) Effects upon existing sewer and water systems;

(c) Effects upon schools;

(d) Effects upon medical facilities and services;

(e) Additional law enforcement requirements;

(f) Additional housing requirements; and

(g) Technical planning requirements.

(3) After completion of the assessment required under this section, the county governing body may impose upon the owner of the site an annual fee reasonably calculated to mitigate the social and economic effects on communities that are occurring or that are likely to occur by reason of the major recovery or major remedial action. The annual fee may be imposed during the first year in which the major recovery or major remedial action is conducted and in each succeeding year for the duration of the major recovery or major remedial action. When a fee is imposed under this section, the fee shall be reviewed in each year and may be adjusted when circumstances make an adjustment necessary or appropriate. The total aggregate fee imposed under this section shall not exceed five percent of the total aggregate cost of the major recovery or major remedial action.

(4) If the entity responsible for conducting the major recovery or major remedial action is different from the owner of the site at which the major recovery or major remedial action is conducted, the fee authorized by this section may be imposed upon either the owner or the entity or upon both jointly.
