75830.
  

A district, notwithstanding the exclusion of lands therefrom, shall be and remain a district as fully, to every intent and purpose, as it would be had no change been made in the boundaries of the district, or had the lands excluded therefrom never constituted a portion of the district.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75831.
  

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

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75832.
  

For the purpose of discharging the outstanding indebtedness at the time of the filing of the petition for exclusion of lands, the lands excluded shall be deemed and considered as part of the district the same as though the petition for its exclusion had never been filed or the order of exclusion never made.

All provisions which may have been resorted to to compel the payment by such lands of their quota or portion of such outstanding obligations had such exclusion never been accomplished, may, notwithstanding such exclusion, be resorted to to compel and enforce the payment on the part of such lands of their quota or portion of such outstanding obligations for which they are liable.

Such lands shall not be held answerable or chargeable for any obligation of any nature or kind whatever incurred after the filing with the board of the petition for the exclusion of such lands from the district.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75833.
  

The provisions of Sections 75831 and 75832 shall not apply to any outstanding bonds, the holders of which have assented to the exclusion of the lands from the district, as provided in Article 5 (commencing with Section 75810) of this chapter.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75834.
  

If any of the outstanding bonds are payable from assessments upon all real property in the district, any real property excluded from the district by virtue of the exclusion of lands from said district shall, notwithstanding such exclusion, be considered a part of such district for the purpose of discharging such outstanding bonded indebtedness and shall be and remain liable to be taxed to pay the principal of and interest on such outstanding bonded indebtedness until such outstanding bonded indebtedness and the interest thereon is fully paid; except that the provisions of this section shall not apply to any outstanding bonds, the holders of which have assented to the exclusion of such lands from the district.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75835.
  

If the land excluded from any district embraces the greater portion of any division or divisions of such district, the office of director for such division or divisions shall become and be vacant at the expiration of 10 days from the final order of the board excluding such lands. Such vacancy or vacancies shall be filled pursuant to Section 1780 of the Government Code.

(Amended by Stats. 1975, Ch. 1059.)
