BILL SUMMARIES

COMMITTEE

HB 1843 -- THIRD CLASS CITIES

SPONSOR:  George

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on Local
Government and Related Matters by a vote of 20 to 0.

Under current law, third class cities are required to elect a
mayor, police judge, attorney, assessor, collector, treasurer,
and, except in cities that have adopted a merit system police
department, a marshal.  This bill exempts third class cities
that have contracted with another entity for police service from
electing a marshal.

The bill also exempts third class cities from electing an
assessor or collector if the city has contracted with either a
public or private entity for the assessment or collection of
property taxes.  Under current law, the position of collector or
assessor can only be nullified if the city contracts with the
county for these services.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

PROPONENTS:  Supporters say that this is a technical change in
the law.  Many small cities contract for services with the
counties.  This bill only makes these contracts legal.

Testifying for the bill were Representative George; and Missouri
Municipal League.

OPPONENTS:  There was no opposition voiced to the committee.

Steve Bauer, Legislative Analyst
