Nevada Revenue and Taxation

Sec. § 377B.170
Water authority in larger counties required to enter into interlocal agreement to provide distribution from infrastructure fund to certain cities, towns and other public entities.


1.

In a county whose population is 700,000 or more and in which a water authority exists, the water authority shall enter into an interlocal agreement with a city or town located in the county whose territory is not within the boundaries of the area served by the water authority or with a public entity in the county which provides water or wastewater services and which is not a member of the water authority to provide a distribution from the infrastructure fund of the water authority to the city, town or public entity after the city, town or public entity has filed with the water authority a detailed plan for acquiring, establishing, constructing, improving or equipping, or any combination thereof, a water or wastewater facility.

2.

Such a city, town or public entity may request annually from the infrastructure fund of the water authority an amount of the proceeds of the tax for infrastructure received annually by the water authority that is equal to the proportion that the assessed valuation of taxable property within the boundaries of the city or town or the area served by the public entity, except any assessed valuation attributable to the net proceeds of minerals, bears to the total assessed valuation of taxable property within the county, except any assessed valuation attributable to the net proceeds of minerals. If the boundaries of such a city or town overlap with the boundaries of a public entity in such a county which provides water or wastewater services and which is not a member of the water authority, the water authority shall apportion equally between the city or town and the public entity the distribution from the infrastructure fund attributable to the assessed valuation in the area where the boundaries overlap.

3.

The water authority shall not unreasonably refuse a request from such a city, town or public entity for a distribution from the infrastructure fund pursuant to the provisions of this section.
