Staff Analysis of the Legislation

SB 53 requires every county to prepare a map or plat by December 31, 2011 showing a special district for every public or private university, college or junior college in the unincorporated area. Any fine for violations of any criminal act, traffic violation or ordinance violation that occurs within this special district would include an additional penalty of 50% of the original fine. On half of the addition 50% would be retained by the county, the other half of this would be required to be placed into a special fund for that special district. The amounts from this special fund could only be used to enhance public safety services for the special district. The county would be required to file a report with the Department of Community Affairs detailing the county's compliance with this law.
