Section 11-59-14

Authority and procedure for dissolution of corporations; vesting of title to facilities thereof in municipalities upon dissolution.

When the principal of and interest on all bonds issued by the corporation shall have been paid, the title to all facilities then owned by the corporation shall thereupon vest in the municipality with respect to which the corporation shall have been organized, and all rights and powers of the corporation with respect to said facilities shall thereupon terminate and the corporation shall thereupon stand dissolved.

The then members of the board of directors of the corporation shall thereupon execute and file for record in the office of the judge of probate of the county in which the certificate of incorporation of the corporation was filed an appropriate certificate reciting the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds of the corporation, which certificate shall also describe the facilities owned by the corporation at the time of its dissolution, but the failure of the members of said board of directors to make such certificate or to file the same for record as aforesaid shall not affect the automatic dissolution of the corporation and the vesting of title to its facilities in the municipality as provided in this section.

At any time prior to the issuance of bonds or other obligations as evidence of debt, the board of directors of the corporation may, with the approval of the governing body of the municipality, file for record in the office of the judge of probate of the county in which the certificate of incorporation of the corporation was filed a certificate of dissolution, and the corporation shall thereupon stand dissolved.
