§ 7-105. Involuntary dissolution--Grounds--Petition in district court
The district attorney for the county in which the situs of the municipal government is located may petition for involuntary dissolution of a municipality when the government of a municipality ceases to function by reason of the following:
1. General municipal elections have not been called in the municipality for two successive general municipal elections;
2. A majority of all the members of the governing body fail to qualify for two successive general municipal elections; or
3. The municipality is totally within an area subject to subsidence, environmental contamination or flooding as a result of mining operations, dam construction or natural causes beyond the control of the municipality, and said municipality is unable to meet the cost of continuing its government and maintaining its services to residents due to a reduction in population resulting from such circumstances.
The petition requesting involuntary dissolution shall be filed in the district court in the county in which the situs of the municipality is located. The petition shall state the facts which justify the request and shall set forth a detailed statement of the assets and liabilities of the municipality insofar as they can be ascertained.
