Section 11-49C-4

Agreements construed as interstate compacts; actions in case of controversy.

Any agreements entered into pursuant to this chapter between a Class 8 municipality in Alabama and a municipality of another state which is contiguous to the Alabama municipality shall have the status of an interstate compact, but in any case of controversy involving performance or interpretation thereof or liability thereunder, the municipalities involved thereto shall be real parties in interest and the state may maintain an action to recoup or otherwise make itself whole for any damages or liability which it may incur by reason of being joined as a party therein. The action shall be maintainable against any municipality whose default, failure of performance, or other conduct caused or contributed to the incurring of damage or liability by the state.
