Health & Safety Code Section 262.005
(a)A governing body by ordinance may dissolve an authority created by the governing body if the governing body and the authority provide for the sale or transfer of the authority’s assets and liabilities to the municipality or to another person.
(b)The dissolution of an authority and the sale or transfer of the authority’s assets and liabilities may not:
(1)violate a trust indenture or bond resolution relating to the outstanding bonds of the authority; or
(2)diminish or impair the rights of the holders of outstanding bonds, warrants, or other obligations of the authority.
(c)Except as otherwise provided by this section, an ordinance dissolving an authority takes effect on the 31st day after the date the governing body adopts the ordinance.
(d)If before the ordinance takes effect the municipality receives a petition requesting a referendum on the dissolution that is signed by a number of registered voters of the municipality equal to at least 10 percent of the number of voters who voted in the most recent municipal election, the ordinance does not take effect and the governing body shall order the election.
(e)Section 41.001 (Uniform Election Dates)(a), Election Code, requiring an election to be held on a uniform election date, does not apply to an election under this section. The ballot shall be printed to provide for voting for or against the proposition: “Dissolution of the (name of the authority).”
(f)If a majority of the votes in the election are cast in favor of the proposition, the ordinance takes effect on a date stated in the order declaring the results of the election. If a majority of the votes in the election are cast against the proposition, the ordinance does not take effect and the governing body may not adopt an ordinance dissolving the authority before the first anniversary of the date of the election. That ordinance is also subject to the petition and election requirements of this section.
