AN ACT to authorize the governing body of the city of Bluefield to appoint two additional nonresident members to the Bluefield Sanitary Board.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

§1. Legislative findings.
(a) The Legislature finds that:

(2) The sanitary sewer system serves both the city of Bluefield, West Virginia, and the town of Bluefield, Virginia;
(3) Part of the sanitary sewer system serving the city of Bluefield, West Virginia, and the town of Bluefield, Virginia, is located in the town of Bluefield, Virginia;
(4) The sanitary board that supervises and controls the sanitary sewer system serving the city of Bluefield, West Virginia and the town of Bluefield, Virginia, was organized by the city of Bluefield, West Virginia, that the two appointed board members are residents of the city of Bluefield, West Virginia; and
(5) Residents of the town of Bluefield, Virginia, have no representation in the decisions concerning the sanitary sewer system affecting their town.
(b) Therefore, the Legislature declares that since the city of Bluefield is in a unique situation, it is in the public interest that the governing body of the city of Bluefield, West Virginia, be authorized to confirm and appoint two additional nonresident members from the town of Bluefield, Virginia, to the Bluefield Sanitary Board.
