CHAPTER 8. Special District for Sewage Disposal or Solid Waste Resource Recovery [13451 - 13691]

  ( Heading of Chapter 8 amended by Stats. 1977, Ch. 128. )

ARTICLE 3. Election [13511 - 13513]
  ( Article 3 enacted by Stats. 1951, Ch. 764. )


At any time after the board has approved the creation of the proposed special district, and fixed its boundaries, the board shall call and publish notice of an election within the proposed special district for the purpose of determining whether the proposed special district will be created and, if the board so determines, for the submission of a proposition for incurring a bonded indebtedness for the acquisition, construction, or completion by the district of any works, lands, structures, rights, or any other property necessary or convenient for the recovery of resources from solid waste or for the collection, treatment, or disposition of sewage matter for the special district. If the board determines that no bonded indebtedness is presently necessary, the board may call the election for the creation and establishment of the special district only, and a bond election may later be called.

(Amended by Stats. 1977, Ch. 128.)


No person is entitled to vote at the election unless he is a voter of the territory included in the proposed special district. The election may be held on the same day as any other state, county, or city election and may be consolidated therewith.

(Enacted by Stats. 1951, Ch. 764.)


If a proposition for incurring a bonded indebtedness is submitted at the same election with the proposal to create the special district, the votes cast on the proposition of incurring a bonded indebtedness shall be separately canvassed in the special district as a whole. The favorable vote of two-thirds of all the voters voting on the proposition of issuing bonds within the special district as finally established is required to authorize the issuance of the bonds.
