    Bill Summary

    This bill revises provisions related to deannexation of territory by an incorporated municipality.

    DEANNEXATION, GENERALLY

    Generally under present law:

    (1) Any incorporated city or town may, after notice and public hearing, contract its limits within any given territory upon its own initiative by ordinance when it appears in the best interest of the affected territory. Such contraction of limits must be approved by a majority of the total membership of the city legislative body;
    (2) The contraction of limits described in (1) above may not occur if opposed by a majority of the voters residing within the area to be deannexed. The concurrence of a majority of the voters is presumed unless a petition objection to deannexation signed by 10 percent of the registered voters residing within such area is filed and a referendum held;
    (3) Any incorporated city or town may contract its limits within any given territory if 3/4 of the qualified voters voting in an election assent to such contraction; and
    (4) The election described in (3) above must be held under the provisions of an ordinance to be passed for that purpose, and a full report of the election must be spread upon the minutes of the board, if the contraction is assented to, and in the report the metes and bounds of the territory to be excluded must be fully set forth.

    This bill removes (1), (2), and (4) above and revises (3) to only require a majority vote of the qualified voters voting in an election to assent to any incorporated municipality contracting its limits.

    Under this bill, whenever 10 percent or more of the registered voters of any incorporated municipality petition the county election commission that an election be held of the qualified voters, submitting to them the question of "deannexation" or "no deannexation," the commission must hold an election in the municipality to ascertain the will of the municipality as to deannexation from the municipality. Such election will be scheduled to coincide with the next citywide or countywide election, primary, or referendum that is held at least 45 days after the petitions for deannexation are filed with the election commission. If a majority of the voters fail to approve the deannexation referendum, no further election may be held on the issue for 36 months.

    DEANNEXATION OF CERTAIN PUBLIC WAYS

    Under present law, funds in the municipal street aid fund are distributed to eligible municipalities monthly by the commissioner of finance and administration in proportion as the population of each municipality bears to the aggregate population of all municipalities. This bill adds that, in the case of any street deannexed by a municipality on or after May 1, 1998, the municipality must submit a map of the deannexed area to the commissioner, and the commissioner will have the duty to revise and reallocate any funds to the appropriate municipality or county for the purposes of street improvement in the deannexed area.

    This bill prohibits a municipality from deannexing territory containing any public way, such as a street or tunnel, that is dedicated to public use and maintained for general public travel without approval by a 2/3 vote of the county legislative body.

    ON MARCH 14, 2016, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENTS #2, #3, AND #10, AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 779, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #2 limits application to the deannexation provisions to the following cities: Monteagle, Kingsport, Johnson City, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Memphis.

    This amendment specifies that the contraction provisions apply to annexation that became operative or effective on or after May 1, 1989. This amendment further specifies that the petition the bill requires to be filed by the registered voters calling for an election for deannexation must contain the ordinance that annexed the territory, which must include the same map used to annex the territory. This amendment clarifies that no additions or deletions from the original map used by the municipality is permitted, except that, prior to the election, any commercial or industrial properties located within the territory may be excluded from the proposed deannexation by resolution of the municipal legislative body. This amendment also clarifies that only the registered voters residing within the plat set forth in the map may vote in the election.

    This amendment requires that the petition for deannexation be filed not less than 75 days before next scheduled citywide or countywide election, primary election, or referendum. Under the bill, the county election commission, upon receipt of the petition, must hold an election on the petition to coincide with the next citywide or countywide election, primary, or referendum that is held at least 45 days after the petition is filed. This amendment changes that time period to at least 75 days after the petition is filed. Under this amendment, the municipality must determine the debt amount not less than 30 days prior to the election.

    This amendment adds to the bill that the operative date of the deannexation, if a majority of voters approve the deannexation, will be 30 days after the date the county election commission makes its official canvass of the election returns.

    Under the bill if a majority of voters fail to approve the deannexation referendum, no further election may be held on the issue for 36 months. This amendment does not specify when another election may be held on the issue, but it does repeal the provisions of the bill setting forth this deannexation procedure on July 1, 2019.

    This amendment retains the present law requirement, which this bill would have deleted, that the report of the election, setting forth the metes and bounds of the territory to be excluded, be spread upon the minutes of the board. This amendment reduces from 3/4 vote to a majority the vote needed for this to happen.

    Under present law, a municipality may continue to levy and collect taxes on property in the deannexed territory to pay for the deannexed territory's proportion of any debt contracted prior to the deannexation. This amendment revises this provision to apply to debt issued "during the annexed period". This amendment requires the municipality to make a showing that the debt arises out of public improvements made to the deannexed territory to continue to levy and collect taxes in the territory.

    This amendment specifies that the map of any streets deannexed after May 1, 1998, must be submitted to the commissioner of finance and administration within six months of the effective date of this bill. This amendment specifies that the commissioner has one year from the submission of such map to revise and reallocate any funds as required by the bill.

    This amendment adds that prior to any reallocation of funds by the commissioner, a municipality may by a 2/3 vote of its legislative body rescind the deannexation of the street, if the rescindment is accomplished within six months of the effective date of the act.

    Present law, enacted in 2015, authorizes a municipality, by resolution, to propose annexation of territory that does not adjoin the boundary of the main part of the municipality, without extending the corporate limits of that territory, if the territory proposed for annexation is entirely contained within the municipality's urban growth boundary and is either:

    (1) To be used for industrial or commercial purposes or future residential development; or
    (2) Owned by one or more governmental agencies.

    This amendment revises (1) above to require that the territory be utilized for a industrial or commercial purpose or residential development.

    Under present law, these provisions for annexation of nonadjoining territory only apply to a county having a population according to the most recent decennial census that is greater than 44.5 percent and 50,000 of its population in the preceding decennial census. This amendment removes this restriction, thereby making the provisions applicable statewide.

    AMENDMENT #3 removes Johnson City from this bill.

    AMENDMENT #10 clarifies a reference to the municipality's property tax base.

    ON MARCH 21, 2016, THE SENATE SUBSTITUTED HOUSE BILL 779 FOR SENATE BILL 749 AND REFERRED HOUSE BILL 779 TO THE STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE.
