RESOLUTION NO , 2009 -015 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY <br /> COMMISSIONERS OF INDIAN RIVER COUNTY , <br /> FLORIDA, OPPOSING SENATE BILL 494 AND <br /> HOUSE BILL 755 (2009 LEGISLATIVE SESSION ) . <br /> WHEREAS , Senate Bill 494 and House Bill 755 impose requirements for <br /> automatic lawn sprinkler systems to have rain or soil-moisture devices or switches; and <br /> WHEREAS , licensed irrigation contractors will be required to inspect for <br /> such devices and switches , and to install them before completing any other service to <br /> the system ; and <br /> WHEREAS , local governments will be required to adopt ordinance to <br /> enforce , impose fines , and set up contractor reporting systems , <br /> NOW, THEREFORE , BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY <br /> COMMISSIONERS OF INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FLORIDA THAT : <br /> 1 . Senate Bill 494 and House Bill 755 are unfunded mandates that <br /> shift enforcement duties to local governments at a time when those local governments <br /> are cutting budgets and lack the manpower to implement enforcement. <br /> 2 . Water conservation is a good intent, but these bills will result in <br /> financial penalties to our neighbors , undermining respect for the law. <br /> 3 . The subject matter of these bills should focus on education , not <br /> regulation , and be left to the discretion and option of local governments . <br />
