H.F. 2101 Section 1. Section 309.57, subsection 5, Code 2018, is 1 amended to read as follows: 2 5. A road with an area service “C” classification shall 3 retain the classification until such time as a petition for 4 reclassification is submitted to the board of supervisors. 5 The petition shall be signed by one or more all adjoining 6 landowners. The board of supervisors shall approve or deny the 7 request for reclassification within sixty days of receipt of 8 the petition. 9 EXPLANATION 10 The inclusion of this explanation does not constitute agreement with 11 the explanation’s substance by the members of the general assembly. 12 Under current law, a county board of supervisors, after 13 consultation with the county engineer, and for purposes 14 of specifying levels of maintenance effort and access, may 15 classify an area service system into three classifications 16 termed area service “A”, area service “B”, and area service 17 “C”. The area service “C” classification roads may have 18 restricted access and a minimal level of maintenance as 19 specified by the county board of supervisors after consultation 20 with the county engineer. A road with an area service “C” 21 classification retains the classification until such time as a 22 petition for reclassification is submitted to the county board 23 of supervisors. The petition must be signed by one or more 24 adjoining landowners. This bill amends current law to require 25 the petition to be signed by all adjoining landowners. 26 -1- LSB 5892YH (2) 87 ns/rh 1/ 1
