24-1228.Dissolution of district, when; resolution; petition; election; certificate of dissolution. Whenever a watershed district has been organized and incorporated under the provisions of article 12 of chapter 24 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, for more than eight years and has not adopted a general plan of work and projects to be undertaken by the district, constructed or contracted to construct any works of improvement or incurred any continuing obligations for maintenance of any works of improvement, or when such a district has been organized and incorporated under such provisions for more than four years and has not made substantial progress toward a general plan of work and projects to be undertaken by the district, the board of such district may, by resolution adopted by a 2/3 vote of all members of such board present and voting, but in no event less than a majority of all members of such board at a special meeting of such board called for that purpose, and notice of which special meeting shall specify the purpose for which the meeting is to be called, provide for the calling of an election of the qualified voters of such district for the purpose of determining whether such district shall be dissolved; and the board shall provide for the calling of such an election if written petitions therefor signed by 20% of the landowners of such district, as shown by a verified enumeration of such landowners by a landowner of such district, are filed with the secretary of such board. Notwithstanding any provision of this section, the Middle Creek joint watershed district No. 50 may be dissolved in the same manner and procedure as provided herein.

The election to determine whether the district shall be dissolved shall be held and conducted in the same manner as provided by K.S.A. 24-1207, and amendments thereto, insofar as such provisions can be made applicable. If a majority of those voting on the proposition voted in favor of dissolution of the district, the board shall immediately certify the results of such election to the secretary of state, and the secretary of state shall thereupon issue and deliver to the secretary of such board a certificate of dissolution.
