29-109. Electric fence deemed legal fence; construction and composition. (a) In addition to fences otherwise declared by law to be a legal fence, an electrically charged wire fence with at least one 14 gauge wire or its equivalent not more than 48 inches from the ground and which is deemed by the fence viewers in whose jurisdiction such fence is located, to be equivalent to other legal fences, is hereby deemed a legal fence. The board of county commissioners of any county, by resolution, may elect to declare that such electrically charged wire fence shall not be a legal fence within the jurisdiction of such board. No electrically charged wire fence shall be erected or maintained in contact with public utility poles or lines or in any manner where there is danger or possibility of unreasonable interference with or damage to the equipment or service of a public utility without the permission of the public utility. No utility which furnishes electricity shall have or incur any liability to any person in the event of electric power failure to or for any electric fence.

(b) The board of county commissioners of any county, by resolution, may establish for an electrically charged wire fence constructed after the effective date of such resolution construction requirements which are more stringent than the requirements under subsection (a). In those cases where an electrically charged wire fence is located on a county line, the least restrictive requirements for construction of such fence shall apply.

History: L. 1986, ch. 195, ยง 5; July 1.
