The board of directors of Cedar Bluff irrigation district No. 6 may present a petition, adopted by a majority of the directors, to the chief engineer requesting the dissolution of such district. The petition shall state the district has no real property;  and that the district is not functioning, had ceased to function and probably will continue inoperative;  and that all indebtedness and obligations of the district have been satisfied. Upon finding that the petition is true, the chief engineer shall issue a certificate in duplicate, declaring the irrigation district dissolved, and shall forward the original of the certificate to the secretary of state and the duplicate to the secretary of the board of directors of the irrigation district. The certificate shall: (a) Direct the secretary of the district to file all minutes and records of the district with the county clerk of the county wherein the registered office of the irrigation district is located;  (b) direct the officer of such district having custody of any personal property other than moneys to make such disposition as the chief engineer deems proper;  and (c) direct the treasurer of such district to distribute moneys held in the name of the district to the owners of property within the irrigation district. Such moneys shall be apportioned to each property owner in the district in the same proportion that the number of irrigable acres owned by a property owner, and located in such district, bears to the total number of irrigable acres in the district. The irrigation district shall be dissolved and cease to exist upon expiration of 30 days after the date of the issuance of such certificate, or upon expiration of 30 days after a final order pursuant to K.S.A. 82a-1901, and amendments thereto, or final judicial determination affirming the findings of the chief engineer, as set out in the certificate, in event that an appeal is taken therefrom.
