The 192nd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith redetermination of sewer assessments made by the uniform unit method, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

Chapter 83 of the General Laws is hereby amended by striking out section 15A, as appearing in the 2004 Official Edition, and inserting in place thereof the following section:-

Section 15A. Any city at any meeting of the proper municipal authority, or any town at a town meeting, may, from time to time, redetermine the uniform rate or uniform unit fixed under section 15, or under any special law, and charged to abutters for, or to the existing and potential sewer units to be served by, the construction of sewers, but this section shall not apply to the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority.

Approved August 9, 2006.
