80-1109.Consolidation of two or more townships; procedure; resolution, agreement, election. Two or more townships may consolidate into a single township which may be one of the consolidated townships or a new township to be formed by means of such consolidation. The members of the township boards or a majority of them on the respective boards shall by resolution declare such consolidation to be desirable and arrange for a meeting between the respective boards. Members of township boards may enter into an agreement signed by such members prescribing the terms and conditions of the consolidation and designate the officers of the township until new township officers are elected and take office as provided by law. Such resolutions of the agreement and consolidation duly certified by the respective township clerks shall be presented to the board of county commissioners of the county in which said townships are situated by delivering the same to the county clerk of said county. Within 10 days after such receipt by the county commissioners they shall call an election, noticed and called in the manner as bond elections under the general bond law in said townships for the purpose of approval or disapproval of agreement of consolidation. The ballot used in such elections shall conform to the provisions of K.S.A. 25-605, and amendments thereto, and the question shall be stated substantially as follows: "Shall the township of ______________ and the township of ______________ be consolidated into one township and the new township named ______________?" If a majority of the qualified electors in each township shall vote to consolidate, the board of county commissioners shall adopt a resolution certifying that the consolidation is in effect in accordance with the agreement and the respective townships shall thereupon be considered disorganized.
