84.780 OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLE DAMAGE ACCOUNT.
(a) The off-highway vehicle damage account is created in the natural resources fund. Money
in the off-highway vehicle damage account is appropriated to the commissioner of natural
resources for the repair or restoration of property damaged by the illegal operation of off-highway
vehicles or the operation of off-highway vehicles in an unpermitted area after August 1, 2003, and
for the costs of administration for this section. Before the commissioner may make a payment
from this account, the commissioner must determine whether the damage to the property was
caused by the unpermitted or illegal use of off-highway vehicles, that the applicant has made
reasonable efforts to identify the responsible individual and obtain payment from the individual,
and that the applicant has made reasonable efforts to prevent reoccurrence.
(b) Determinations of the commissioner under this section may be made by written order and
are exempt from the rulemaking provisions of chapter 14. Section
does not apply.
(c) Money in the account is available until expended.
