Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that, when selling surplus real estate of a fire protection district, the value of the surplus real estate shall be determined by a written MAI certified appraisal or by a written certified appraisal of a State certified or licensed real estate appraiser (currently, by only a written MAI certified appraisal conducted by a State certified or licensed real estate appraiser). Provides that, if a party fails to reimburse or make a payment to a fire protection district as required by the Act or the Hazardous Material Emergency Response Reimbursement Act, the fire protection district may institute a civil action to recover costs. Provides that, if the court determines that any violation of the Act has occurred, the court shall award to the prevailing fire protection district actual damages, reasonable attorney's fees, and court costs. Defines "prevailing fire protection district". Provides that the board of trustees of any fire protection district may provide for the planning and implementation of services necessary to prevent or respond to emergencies involving hazardous materials or both (rather than only to prevent or respond to emergencies involving hazardous materials). Provides that the board of trustees may fix, charge, and collect reasonable fees for hazardous material services provided by the district. Provides that the total amount collected may not exceed the reasonable cost of providing those hazardous material services. Provides that nothing in the Act prohibits a fire protection district from seeking any remedy under the Hazardous Material Emergency Response Reimbursement Act. Provides that, in addition to other specified purposes in the Act, a fire protection district may accumulate funds for other purposes. Provides that the funds may be accumulated in any fund of the district. Amends the Hazardous Material Emergency Response Reimbursement Act. Provides that an emergency response agency that is a fire protection district or municipality may institute a civil action to recover costs, including labor costs and the costs of equipment and expendables, incurred in responding to an emergency incident. Provides that the fire protection district or municipality may recover attorney's fees and costs if the district or municipality is the prevailing party. Defines "prevailing party".
