To Fiscal Note on LCO No. 5016
sHB-5509, File No. 380
AN ACT CONCERNING MUNICIPAL ORDINANCES FOR INTEREST RATES ON DELINQUENT SEWER ASSESSMENTS.
The bill will result in total costs of approximately $460,000 in FY 19 and FY 20 to the Public Utilities Control (PUC) fund based on additional information that is not reflected in the underlying fiscal note.
This cost is based on the addition of six new positions within the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) for the establishment of the new regulatory program for certain water pollution control authorities (WPCAs), a consultant, and associated fringe benefits.1
1 The fringe benefit costs for employees funded out of other appropriated funds are budgeted within the fringe benefit account of those funds, as opposed to the fringe benefit accounts within the Office of the State Comptroller. The estimated active employee fringe benefit cost associated with most personnel changes for other appropriated fund employees is 87.66% of payroll in FY 19 and FY 20.
