CLEARINGHOUSE RULE 19-006
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that, pursuant to ss. 227.17 and 227.24 (4), Stats., the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing on proposed permanent rule Wisconsin Administrative Code ch. Trans 58 relating to the surveying reference station system (height modernization) user fee.
Date: Thursday, April 11, 2019
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Hill Farms State Office Building

Appearances at the Hearing and Submittal of Written Comments: Interested persons are invited to appear at the hearing and will be afforded the opportunity to make an oral presentation of their positions. Persons making oral presentations are requested to also submit their written comments.
Written comments will be accepted until Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. and may be sent to Steven Krebs, Division of Transportation System Development, State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 4822 Madison Yards Way, S407, Madison, Wisconsin 53705, or by email email@example.com.

Accessibility: If you have special needs or circumstances regarding communication or accessibility at a hearing, please contact Julie Schmidt, Administrative Rulemaking Coordinator, (608) 266-7364 prior to the hearing date. Accommodations will be made available upon request to the fullest extent possible.
Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis: The proposed rule will have an effect on small businesses, as defined under s. 227.114 (1), Stats. The projected costs are $300 per user per year (Individual Yearly Rate); $300 per user per year for the first 5 users in the organization plus $150 per user per year thereafter (Organizational Yearly Rate); and $50 per user per month (Individual Monthly Rate). For even a very small business, such as a self-employed individual, these costs are not a significant economic impact. If the Department did not support the Active Surveying Reference Station System, it would either no longer function or be replaced by a privately-run surveying reference system. Either alternative would be much costlier to providers of surveying services than the current system.
