SECTION 19250-19253



19250.  Proceedings for the dissolution of the district may be
instituted by filing with the board of supervisors a petition signed
by 50 or more property owners and residents of the district, asking
for its dissolution. The board of supervisors shall, within 30 days
after receiving the petition, by resolution, order that an election
be held in the district for the determination of the question of
dissolution. The election shall be called and conducted in the same
manner as other elections of the district.



19251.  If a majority of the votes cast at the election held in the
district for determination of the question of dissolution are in
favor of dissolution, the district shall be dissolved.



19252.  Upon the dissolution of the district the title to any
property which it may have acquired shall vest in any city which has
at that time a considerable portion of the territory of the lighting
district within its boundaries. If there is no such city, the title
to the property shall vest in the board of supervisors of the county
wherein the district is situated until such a city is created.




19253.  If at the time of the election to dissolve the district
there is any indebtedness of the district outstanding, the vote to
dissolve shall dissolve the district for all purposes except the levy
and collection of taxes or assessments, as the case may be, for the
payment of such outstanding indebtedness. From the time the district
is thus dissolved until the indebtedness is fully paid, the
legislative body of the city which is entitled to the property of the
district as provided for in Section 19252 or, if there is no such
city, the board of supervisors of the county wherein the district is
located shall be the ex officio governing body of the district. That
body shall levy such taxes or assessments and perform such other acts
as may be necessary to pay the outstanding indebtedness of the
district.
