16.40.070 Fuel Surcharges.

A.  The Board has the authority to impose, modify and rescind fuel surcharges.  Any fuel surcharge imposed under this Section or any modification of a fuel surcharge already in place that increases the fuel surcharge must be reviewed by the Board within 180 days from its effective date.

 

B.  A failure by the Board to review any fuel surcharge as required in Subsection 16.40.070 A. automatically rescinds the surcharge and it is of no further effect. 

 

C.  Fuel surcharges authorized under this Section may only be imposed or modified pursuant to the criteria found in administrative rule.  Fuel surcharges may be rescinded by the Board at any time, even if the criteria for allowing a fuel surcharge currently exist. 

 

D.  If at any time a fuel surcharge is currently in place, appropriate notification of the surcharge must be given to the public.  The Board may determine by administrative rule what suffices for appropriate notification, but at a minimum all vehicles subject to a fuel surcharge must have signage in the vehicle notifying of the surcharge.
