AGO Opinions with Topic: GIFT OF PUBLIC FUNDS
AGO 2009 No. 5 >  August 27, 2009
SEWER DISTRICTS - PUBLIC FUNDS - GIFT OF PUBLIC FUNDS - GIFTS - LOANS
Use of public funds to repair or replace side sewers Municipal sewer districts have statutory authority to use public funds to repair or replace side sewers located on private property if doing so will increase sewer capacity by reducing infiltration and inflow.  Use of public funds to do so does not constitute an unconstitutional gift or loan of public funds if the district acts without donative intent and can demonstrate that the action will result in significant benefit to the public.
