HB17-1017 - County Surveyor Duties

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning county surveyors.

The bill clarifies the specific duties of a county surveyor and provides that certain services may be provided at the surveyor's discretion and when compensated by agreement between the surveyor and the board of county commissioners. The board of county commissioners may elect to have some of the discretionary services contracted out to a private surveyor or have other county departments perform the services.

If the office of the county surveyor is vacant, current law requires the board of county commissioners to fill the vacancy within 90 days. The bill extends this period to 6 months.

The bill modifies the process used to fix and define an indefinite boundary line between 2 counties.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
