Alternatively, the board of supervisors may order the board of governors to develop a plan of dissolution providing for the disposition of all of the assets and liabilities of the authority, which shall be subject to approval by the board of supervisors. Absent written agreement, or as otherwise provided in this chapter, the county shall not be obligated under any law to assume the authority’s obligations or liabilities, or take title to, or custody or control of, the authority’s assets.

(b) Upon the disposition of the liabilities of the authority and distribution of any remaining assets, as applicable, the board of supervisors shall rescind the ordinance that established the authority, and the authority shall cease to exist. The board of supervisors shall notify the State Department of Health Care Services 30 days prior to the effective date of the dissolution, and include in the notice whether the county intends for either or both, or specified components of, the medical center or other operations to be transferred to the county upon the effective date of dissolution of the authority.
