Sec. § 8306.106
Contract With Certain Municipalities Required


The district may not exercise the powers and duties of a municipal utility district under this chapter unless the district enters into a written contract with any municipality in whose extraterritorial jurisdiction the district is wholly or partly located that:


provides for the continuation of the extraterritorial status of the district or the district’s annexation by the municipality;


ensures that any development in the district occurs in a manner that furthers the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the district; and


includes other terms and consideration that the municipality determines to be reasonable and appropriate.


A contract under this section may be renewed or extended for successive periods not to exceed 15 years.


If the district does not enter into a contract under this section before the later of September 1, 2009, or the 30th day after the effective date of the Act creating this chapter, the board, at the board’s sole discretion, may adopt an order dissolving the district if the district has no assets or obligations. If an order dissolving the district is adopted under this subsection, an original or certified copy of the order must be filed with the commission and in the real property records of any county in which the district is located.
