Prev Article 34. - SOLID AND HAZARDOUS WASTENext


65-3415f.Solid waste tonnage fees authorized to be imposed by counties; exceptions; collection and disposition of proceeds. (a) As used in this section, terms have the meanings provided by K.S.A. 65-3402 and amendments thereto.

(b) In addition to any other fee provided by law, the board of county commissioners of any county may impose, by resolution adopted pursuant to this section, a solid waste tonnage fee for each ton or equivalent volume of solid waste disposed of at any solid waste disposal area operated by such county. Such fees shall not apply to any solid waste exempted from the state solid waste tonnage fee imposed by K.S.A. 65-3415b, and amendments thereto.

(c) Fees imposed pursuant to this section shall be collected by the county and deposited in a special fund in the county treasury. All interest earned on moneys in the fund shall also be deposited in the fund. If there is more than one solid waste disposal area in the county where fees are imposed pursuant to this section, a separate fund for each such disposal area shall be maintained from the fees collected from such disposal area. Money in the fund shall be used only for payment of costs of closure, postclosure actions and contamination remediation associated with the solid waste disposal area until the secretary determines that all requirements for closure, postclosure actions and contamination remediation associated with the disposal area have been met.

(d) The board of county commissioners, by resolution, may modify, discontinue or reinstate the fee authorized by this section.

(e) Transfer or expenditure of moneys in a special fund provided for by this section for any purpose other than authorized by this section is a class A nonperson misdemeanor and constitutes grounds for forfeiture of public office.

(f) If two or more counties jointly operate a solid waste disposal area, the fee provided for by this section on solid waste disposed of at such disposal area may be imposed, modified, discontinued or reinstated only if a majority of the board of county commissioners of each county jointly operating the disposal area votes to impose, modify, discontinue or reinstate the fee.
