(a) The certificate of incorporation of any authority incorporated under this chapter may at any time, and from time to time, be amended, but only in the manner provided in this section. The board shall first adopt a resolution proposing an amendment to the certificate of incorporation of the authority, which amendment shall be set forth in full in the resolution and which amendment may include any matters that might have been included in the original certificate of incorporation.
(b) After the adoption by the board of a resolution proposing an amendment to the certificate of incorporation of the authority, the chair of the board and the secretary of the authority shall sign and file, with the governing body of each authorizing subdivision, a written application in the name and on behalf of the authority, requesting the governing body to adopt a resolution approving the proposed amendment, and accompanied by a certified copy of the resolution adopted by the board proposing the amendment to the certificate of incorporation, together with such documents in support of the application as the chair may consider appropriate. As promptly as may be practicable after the filing of the application with the governing body of an authorizing subdivision, the governing body shall review the application and shall adopt a resolution either denying the application or approving and authorizing the proposed amendment. The governing body of each authorizing subdivision with which any application is filed shall also cause a copy of the application and all accompanying documents to be included in the resolution or otherwise spread upon or made a part of the minutes of the meeting of the governing body at which final action upon the application is taken.
(c) Within 60 days following the adoption of a resolution approving the proposed amendment by the governing body of the authorizing subdivision, or, if there is more than one, the last adopted of the approving resolutions, the chair of the board and the secretary of the authority shall sign and file for record in the office of the judge of probate of the county in which the certificate of incorporation of the authority was originally filed a certificate in the name and on behalf of the authority reciting the adoption of the respective resolutions by the board and by the governing body of each authorizing subdivision and setting forth the proposed amendment. The judge of probate shall thereupon record the certificate in an appropriate book in his or her office. When the certificate has been filed and recorded, the amendment shall become effective, and the certificate of incorporation shall thereupon be amended to the extent provided in the amendment.
