“Political subdivision” means a county, city and county, city, town, home rule city, home rule town, service authority, school district, local improvement district, law enforcement authority, water, sanitation, fire protection, metropolitan, irrigation, drainage, or other special district, or any other kind of municipal, quasi-municipal, or public organization organized pursuant to law.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 40-15-502 (3)(b)(I) to (3)(b)(V), local exchange providers of basic local exchange service subject to regulation pursuant to part 2, part 3, or part 5 of article 15 of this title may request authorization from the commission to recover the actual costs incurred for the relocation of infrastructure or facilities requested by the state or a political subdivision. Actual costs are the nonfacility costs incurred in the relocation plus the undepreciated amount of the facilities being replaced. Recovery of actual costs incurred for relocation is intended for those state and political subdivision requests that are determined by the commission to be beyond the normal course of business.


The commission shall verify the actual costs that may be recovered, determine the allocation of costs to various customers and services, and prescribe the method of such recovery. In no event shall the period of recovery of the relocation costs exceed three years.


In determining the allocation of the costs to be recovered, the commission shall consider the jurisdiction requiring the relocation and the geographic area that most directly benefits from the required relocation to determine the customers or services that will bear the costs.
