Explanation

There is a minimal cost to municipalities associated with the bill, which requires them to hold public hearings on construction projects with a value greater than $25 million. The cost will vary based on the number of public hearings held. A single public hearing is estimated to be less than $1,000, associated with posting notices in newspapers and with police overtime to provide security at such public hearings.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of public hearings held.
