Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Fire Protection District Act. Allows 2 fire protection districts by ordinance to disconnect and annex a territory of up to 60 acres when the annexing district can provide better fire protection. Requires that the district disconnecting the area must notify the owners of the land that is to be disconnected. Provides that the notice shall be given 30 days before adoption of an ordinance by either of the districts. The notice shall include a map of the territory and describe the area to be disconnected, the annexing fire district, and the reasons for taking the action.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Reinserts the provisions of the bill as introduced, but makes the following changes: Provides that notice must be given to affected landowners at least 60 days (instead of 30 days) before the adoption of an ordinance to disconnect and annex the property to another fire protection district, and provides that the notice must also set forth the time and place of each meeting at which the ordinance will be an agenda item and must state that there will be an opportunity for public comment at each of those meetings. Makes technical changes.
