Section 11-59-12

Conveyances of properties to corporations by municipalities.

The municipality is hereby authorized and empowered to transfer and convey to the corporation any properties which, at the time of such transfer and conveyance, may have been acquired by such municipality as a site for or which may then be used as a facility, together with such improvements thereon and equipment and furnishings owned by the municipality in connection therewith as the governing body of the municipality may deem advisable.

Such transfer and conveyance may be authorized by an ordinance duly adopted by the governing body of the municipality, and it shall not be necessary that the same be authorized at an election of the qualified voters of the municipality. Such transfer and conveyance may be made as a gift to the corporation and without consideration therefor or on such consideration as may be expressed in such ordinance, as the governing body of the municipality may deem advisable; provided, that if at the time of such transfer and conveyance the municipality has outstanding any bonds or other obligations which were issued or incurred by it with respect to the properties so transferred or conveyed, the corporation shall either pay to the municipality at the time of such transfer and conveyance an amount sufficient to discharge such bonds and other obligations of the municipality or shall assume and thereafter pay the principal of and interest on such bonds or other obligations of the municipality.

The corporation and the municipality are hereby authorized to enter into such agreements with each other as the governing body of the municipality and the board of directors of the corporation may deem advisable to effectuate such transfer and conveyance and to provide for the subsequent control, management, operation, leasing, equipment, enlargement, and improvement of the properties so transferred.
