Upon the receipt of the certificate of commitment from the Director of Transportation, or upon the adoption of the report if no contribution is requested from the state, the board of directors shall transmit certified copies of their report of the project to each of the boards of supervisors of the counties composing the district.

(Amended by Stats. 1980, Ch. 777, Sec. 115.)

25201.
  

Upon receipt of the report of the project, each of the boards of supervisors shall forthwith consider it. Within 60 days after the receipt of the report, each board of supervisors shall by resolution approve or reject the report. Failure of any board of supervisors to act within the time allowed shall be deemed a rejection, but such rejection or a rejection by other means shall be without prejudice to the submission at any time of a new or amended report by the board of directors of the district.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25202.
  

Each board of supervisors shall cause a certified copy of its resolution adopting or rejecting the report of the project to be sent to the secretary of the board of directors of the district.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25203.
  

Upon receipt of the report of the project the clerk of each board of supervisors shall cause a notice to be published twice in a newspaper of general circulation published and circulated in the county receiving the report. The last publication of the notice shall be at least 20 days prior to the date of the hearing on the report. The notice shall set forth:

(a) That the report has been received and is on file for public inspection.

(b) The time at which the board of supervisors will consider the report and hold the hearing thereon.

(c) That all interested persons may present any protests or suggestions which they have to offer concerning the report at that time.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25204.
  

No county within the district shall be obligated or committed hereunder until the board of supervisors thereof approves the report of the project and until that report is approved by the boards of supervisors of all other counties in the district. The proportions of contribution provided for in the report thus approved shall not be exceeded without the consent of the board of supervisors of each county in the district.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25205.
  

At any time prior to the approval of the report of the project by the board of supervisors of any county, the matter of the participation of the county in any issuance of bonds proposed in the report may be referred to a vote of the qualified electors of the county. Such reference shall be had upon the petition of 5 per cent of the registered electors of the county, or upon the resolution of the board of supervisors of the county.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25206.
  

The matter may be submitted at a special election called for that purpose or may be consolidated with any other election involving the entire county. All laws governing county elections shall apply to the election in so far as they may be applicable. The notice of election, in addition to the matters otherwise required, shall refer to the report of the project, a copy of which shall be on file in the office of the county elections official.

(Amended by Stats. 2002, Ch. 221, Sec. 135. Effective January 1, 2003.)

25207.
  

If at the election a two-thirds majority of the electors voting thereon do not approve the proposition, the county shall not participate in the issue of bonds proposed in the report of the project unless the same or any amended proposition for such participation is thereafter, at a subsequent election, approved by the electors.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25208.
  

If any county thus refers the matter of its participation in the issuance of bonds to the electors of the county, the time for the approval of the report by the board of supervisors of that county shall be extended to and including 30 days after the date of canvassing the returns upon the election.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284.)

25209.
  

The provisions of this chapter relating to the submission of the question of county participation in the issuance of bonds to the electors shall not apply to bonds issued under Chapter 19 of this part.
