A BILL
To amend section 1515.29 and to enact section 6137.112 of the Revised Code to allow a board of county commissioners to adjust the permanent base of a ditch improvement that is used for maintenance fund assessments and to allow a board to use certain ditch maintenance procedures to maintain soil and water conservation district improvements.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1. That section 1515.29 be amended and section 6137.112 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:
Sec. 1515.29.  The board of county commissioners, or, if a joint board of county commissioners has been created under section 1515.22 of the Revised Code, the joint board, shall maintain the works of improvement constructed by the board for a soil and water conservation district,. For that purpose, the board or joint board may use procedures and requirements established in sections 6137.08 to 6137.14 of the Revised Code and may contract with or authorize the supervisors or joint board of supervisors of a soil and water conservation district to perform maintenance of such works of improvement.
Sec. 6137.112.  At the time that the board of county commissioners reviews the permanent base of an improvement for maintenance fund assessments after six annual maintenance fund assessments have been made as provided in section 6137.11 of the Revised Code, the board may request the county engineer to estimate the construction cost of the improvement if that improvement were to be constructed at the time of the permanent base review. The board of county commissioners, by resolution, may approve the estimate as the construction cost of the improvement in lieu of the original construction cost of the improvement. If approved, the estimate of construction cost shall be the permanent base that is used to calculate maintenance fund assessments for owners benefiting from the improvement. The approved estimate of construction cost shall serve as the permanent base for the purposes of this chapter until such time as it is revised in accordance with this section.
Section 2. That existing section 1515.29 of the Revised Code is hereby repealed.
