ARTICLE 4. Liability of Excluded Land [48080 - 48087]
  ( Article 4 added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391. )

48080.
  

In the event the board excludes any land from the district upon petition therefor, the board shall make an entry in its minutes describing the boundaries of the district, should the exclusion of the land change its boundaries. For that purpose the board may cause a survey to be made of such portions of the district as it deems necessary.

(Amended by Stats. 1965, Ch. 93.)

48081.
  

A certified copy of the entry in the minutes of the board excluding any land shall be filed for record in the recorder’s office of each affected county.

(Amended by Stats. 1963, Ch. 1607.)

48082.
  

Notwithstanding the exclusion of land, the district remains a district as fully to every intent and purpose as it would be had no change been made in its boundaries, or had the land excluded therefrom never constituted a portion of the district.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)

48083.
  

In case land is excluded from any district, the board may, not less than 60 days before any election in the district, re-establish the boundaries of the divisions within the district.

(Amended by Stats. 1963, Ch. 1607.)

48084.
  

Nothing in this division shall operate to release any of the land excluded from the district from any obligation to pay, or any lien thereon of any valid outstanding bonds or other indebtedness of the district at the time of the filing of the petition for the exclusion of the land. The excluded land shall be subject to any lien, and answerable and chargeable for and with the payment and discharge of all outstanding obligations of the district at the time of the filing of the petition for the exclusion, as fully as though the petition for such exclusion were never filed and the order of exclusion never made.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)

48085.
  

All provisions which might be resorted to to compel the payment by the land of its quota or portion of outstanding district obligations, had the exclusion never been accomplished, may, notwithstanding the exclusion, be resorted to to compel and enforce the payment on the part of the land of its quota and portion of outstanding district obligations for which it is liable as provided in this division.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)

48086.
  

The land excluded shall not be held answerable or chargeable for any obligation incurred after the exclusion of the land from the district.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)

48087.
  

The provisions of this article shall not apply to any outstanding bonds, the holders of which have assented to the exclusion of the land from the district, as provided in Article 3 of this chapter.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)
