DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
User fees for public safety runs. Authorizes the fiscal body of a municipality to impose a user fee or service charge for an emergency response or other service run: (1) that is made by a municipal law enforcement department, municipal fire department, or municipal ambulance service or emergency medical service to a dwelling, business, or other structure that is located in unincorporated territory of a county; and (2) that is not required by, governed by, or subject to a contract or agreement under which the municipality is entitled to compensation by another political subdivision or any other entity or individuals for the emergency response or service run. Provides that the amount of the user fee or service charge may not exceed an amount reasonably related to the reasonable and just cost of conducting the emergency response or service run. Specifies that a municipality may collect any such user fee or service charge that is unpaid in the same manner as delinquent taxes are collected or by bringing a civil action.
