Joe Kelly: City Enterprise Bill 2012

 I talked to Rep. Jeff Kaufmann today.  He has authorized the drafting of the city enterprises bill, pretty much the same bill as was vetoed in 2007.
   We hope to have the draft on Rep. Kaufmann’s desk by January 9th, when the session begins.  I walked the language over to a House Republican staffer who will get it drafted by LSA.
   In the first couple of days of the session, Rep. Kaufmann will be seeking other co-sponsors of the bill.  Then, he will officially file it.  Since the bill will have already been drafted, it would come back down with a bill number in a few days.
   At this point, we want to round up as many potential House members as possible to co-sponsor the bill.  Let me know if your House member would like to co-sponsor.
Joe
P.S.  Printed below is what I submitted.  The strike through of the pertinent language may not show through by the time it gets to you.  But, I know where the strike throughs belong, and it will be drafted correctly.

384.84 (4) (d) & (e)

d. Residential rental property where a charge for water
  service is separately metered and paid directly to the city
   utility or enterprise by the tenant is exempt from a lien for
   delinquent rates or charges associated with such water service
  if the landlord gives written notice to the city utility or
   enterprise that the property is residential rental property
   and that the tenant is liable for the rates or charges.  A
   city utility or enterprise may require a deposit not exceeding
   the usual cost of ninety days of water service to be paid to
   the utility or enterprise.  Upon receipt, the utility or
   enterprise shall acknowledge the notice and deposit.  A
   written notice shall contain the name of the tenant
   responsible for charges, address of the residential rental
   property that the tenant is to occupy, and the date that the
   occupancy begins.  A change in tenant shall require a new
   written notice to be given to the city utility or enterprise
   within ten business days of the change in tenant.  When the
   tenant moves from the rental property, the city utility or
   enterprise shall return the deposit if the water service
   charges are paid in full.  A change in the ownership of the
  residential rental property shall require written notice of
   such change to be given to the city utility or enterprise
   within ten business days of the completion of the change of
  ownership.  The lien exemption for rental property does not
   apply to charges for repairs to a water service if the repair
   charges become delinquent.

 e.  Residential rental property where a charge for any of
   the services of sewer systems, storm water drainage systems,
   sewage treatment, solid waste collection, and solid waste
   disposal is paid directly to the city utility or enterprise by
  the tenant is exempt from a lien for delinquent rates or
   charges associated with such services if the landlord gives
   written notice to the city utility or enterprise that the
   property is residential rental property and that the tenant is
   liable for the rates or charges.  A city utility or enterprise
   may require a deposit not exceeding the usual billing cycle cost
  of the services of sewer systems, storm water drainage
   systems, sewage treatment, solid waste collection, and solid
   waste disposal to be paid to the utility or enterprise.  Upon
   receipt, the utility or enterprise shall acknowledge the
   notice and deposit.  A written notice shall contain the
   address of the residential rental property that the tenant is
  to occupy and the date that the occupancy begins.  When the
   tenant moves from the rental property, the city utility or
   enterprise shall return the deposit if the charges for the
   services of sewer systems, storm water drainage systems,
   sewage treatment, solid waste collection, and solid waste
   disposal are paid in full.  A change in the ownership of the
   residential rental property shall require written notice of
   such change to be given to the city utility or enterprise
   within ten business days of the completion of the change of
   ownership.  The lien exemption for rental property does not
  apply to charges for repairs related to a service of sewer
  systems, storm water drainage systems, sewage treatment, solid
  waste collection, and solid waste disposal if the repair
  charges become delinquent.
