Section 11-50-523

Amendment of certificate of incorporation.

Whenever the board shall deem it desirable to amend the certificate, it may do so in the following manner: The board shall adopt a resolution declaring the proposed amendment to be desirable and specifying the matters of such amendment and providing for the filing with the Secretary of State of such amendment. In the event the proposed amendment provides for the addition of territory to be served by the corporation, the resolution shall describe generally the boundaries of such additional territory, which shall not include any territory served by an existing utility unless consent to the inclusion in the proposed amendment of the territory served by the existing utility shall be given by the owner of each utility in such additional territory. Following the adoption of such resolution, the officers of the corporation designated by the board for such purpose shall than execute a report of such amendment which shall set forth the following: The name of the corporation; a recital as to the original organization of the corporation and any prior amendments thereto; a recital as to the desire to amend the certificate and specifying the matters of such amendments; a recital that authorization for the filing of such report had been granted by a resolution of the board duly adopted and that a copy of such resolution, certified by the secretary of the corporation under its seal, is attached as an exhibit to such report; and, in the event the amendment proposes to add additional territory to the power district as then constituted, the boundaries of such additional territory shall be generally described with either a recital that there is no existing utility in such additional territory or a recital giving the name of the owner of each existing utility in such additional territory and stating that the original evidence of the consent of the owner of each such utility to the inclusion of such additional territory in the power district is attached as an exhibit to such report. The report of the amendment shall be sworn to by the persons executing the same in behalf of the corporation before an officer authorized by the laws of Alabama to take acknowledgments to deeds. Such report shall be presented to the Secretary of State of Alabama who shall thereupon examine the same and, if he finds that the matters required in this section to be set out in such report are contained therein and any exhibit therein referred to is attached thereto, he shall thereupon file such report and shall record it with the certificate, whereupon the certificate shall thereupon and thereby be amended as provided in such report.
