Section 11-99A-52

Formation and incorporation of districts validated and confirmed; validity of certain districts.

(a) The formation and incorporation of each district heretofore formed and incorporated pursuant to this chapter by any county or municipality is hereby validated and confirmed from the date of such formation and incorporation, notwithstanding any noncompliance with any provisions of Section 11-99A-4 or other provision of this chapter with respect thereto; provided, however, that the validation and confirmation effected by this section shall not be applicable to any district the validity of which is being directly challenged in appropriate judicial proceedings in any proper court on May 24, 2013.

(b) In the event that, subsequent to June 12, 1999, land within the corporate limits of a municipality is removed from, or deannexed from, or otherwise determined not to be within, the corporate limits of such municipality, such that land within a district formed and incorporated pursuant to a petition approved by such municipality under Section 11-99A-4, which land is therefore within the corporate limits of such municipality, is no longer contiguous at any point with land within the corporate limits of such municipality, then the district shall be valid in all respects from the date of formation and incorporation thereof, the land within such district shall be and remain within the corporate limits, and a part, of such municipality, and such municipality shall remain the appointing government with respect to such district.
