No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 956 would allow the governing body of a county assistance district to petition the commissioners court of the county to dissolve the district if a majority of the governing body finds the performance of the district's functions cannot be accomplished to the benefit of the residents and owners of land in the district. The bill provides for certain rules regarding hearings and notice of the hearing.
The commissioners court would be required to order the district dissolved and the district's assets transferred to the county if: (1) the commissioners court unanimously votes that dissolution is in the best interests of the district, the county, and the residents and landowners; and (2) the district has no outstanding bonds payable from district revenue and the dissolution does not impair any outstanding district debt or contractual obligation.
