Any municipality located within a cooperative service district may, pursuant to a duly adopted resolution of the governing body, and upon concurrence by the board of commissioners of the service district, enter into contracts with the district to provide, obtain or receive any services provided by the district or to otherwise cooperate and participate through contract in the delivery of services provided by the district which the municipality has the power, authority or responsibility to exercise. In each instance, the contract shall provide the district sufficient payment to enable the district to meet its expenses, including any debt service as a result of any projects of the service district for which the contract is entered.
Any municipality which has contracted with a cooperative service district may terminate its contract with the district by a majority vote of the governing authorities, but the governing authorities of a municipality shall have no power to terminate a contract with the district until the municipality has paid all outstanding debts for the services it has received pursuant to the contract.
