H.P. 1421 - L.D. 1985
An Act to Amend the Charter of the Bath Water District
Emergency preamble. Whereas, Acts of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, the current annual $500 stipend for the members of the Board of Trustees of the Bath Water District was established in 1975; and
Whereas, during the past 27 years, the duties of members of the Board of Trustees of the Bath Water District have become increasingly more demanding; and
Whereas, this legislation removes any confusion created by residual language in the charter of the Bath Water District that appears to limit trustee compensation, but which is void pursuant to existing public law; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Sec. 1. P&SL 1915, c. 197, §7, last ¶, as repealed and replaced by P&SL 1975, c. 82, §1, is repealed.
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this Act takes effect when approved.
Effective March 5, 1998.
