80-1117.Disorganization and consolidation of townships with no residents; procedure; transfer of assets and debts. (a) If any township has no residents, as certified by the county clerk of the county in which such township is located, the board of county commissioners, by resolution, shall disorganize the township or consolidate the township with the next geographically closest township, within such county, having a functioning township board. Prior to the adoption of such resolution, the board of county commissioners shall conduct a public hearing on the advisability of adopting such resolution. Until such time as the disorganization or consolidation is completed, the board of county commissioners may exercise all of the statutory powers of the township board deemed necessary and advisable by such board of county commissioners.

(b) All books, papers, records, moneys and other assets belonging to any township proposed to be disorganized or consolidated under subsection (a) shall be delivered by the persons in possession thereof to the board of county commissioners. The board of county commissioners may dispose of any assets of such township in the manner provided by this section. If at the time of its disorganization or consolidation, the townships have any outstanding indebtedness, the board of county commissioners shall place any moneys together with the proceeds of any assets of such township into a special fund that shall be used for the purpose of paying such indebtedness. Moneys and assets in excess of that required for the payment of outstanding indebtedness either shall be transferred to the township with which the disorganized township is consolidated or, if the township is disorganized, such moneys shall be credited to the county general fund.
