Section 11-47-219

Authority and procedure for dissolution of authorities; vesting of title, etc., to properties thereof upon dissolution.

At any time when an authority has no bonds or other obligations outstanding, its board may adopt a resolution, which shall be duly entered upon its minutes, declaring that the authority shall be dissolved. Upon filing for record of a certified copy of the resolution in the office of the judge of probate with which the authority's certificate of incorporation is filed, the authority shall thereupon stand dissolved and in the event it owned any property at the time of its dissolution, the title to all its properties shall, subject to any constitutional provision or inhibitions to the contrary, thereupon vest in one or more counties or municipalities in the manner and interests as may be provided in the certificate of incorporation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the certificate of incorporation contains no provision respecting the vesting of title to the properties of the authority, title to all of the properties shall, subject to any constitutional provision or inhibitions to the contrary, thereupon vest in its authorizing subdivision, or if the authority has more than one authorizing subdivision, in its authorizing subdivisions as tenants in common.
