(a) Whenever the legislature shall create within the boundary of any union junior
college district a state-supported senior college of the first rank offering at least
four years of college work, and whenever such union junior college district has been
dissolved in the manner provided for in Sections 19.361-19.364 1 of this code, which said method of dissolution of such district is hereby authorized,
the trustees of such union junior college district shall transfer the corporeal properties
and facilities of such union junior college district to such state-supported senior
college, and such trustees, after such dissolution and transfer of properties of such
district, shall not further maintain a junior college and shall function only for
the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this section and shall have no authority
to create any additional indebtedness against such district, and when the bonded indebtedness
of such district has been fully paid, such union junior college district shall cease
to exist; provided that in the order calling such election and in the notice thereof,
the authorities calling such election shall designate the date when such district
shall be dissolved and such transfer shall be made, which date shall be within two
years from the date of the election, and on or prior to said date.
(b) When any union junior college district has been dissolved and its properties transferred
as provided in Subsection (a) of this section, or in any other lawful manner, having
at the time of such dissolution outstanding bonds or other indebtedness enforceable
either at law or in equity, then the county commissioners court, for the purpose of
paying such bonds, or other indebtedness, shall have power and be authorized to annually
levy and collect ad valorem taxes sufficient only to pay the interest and create a
sinking fund to retire the bonded indebtedness of such district, and the expense of
collecting such taxes and paying such bonded indebtedness, and for no other purpose;
provided such tax shall not exceed the rate voted by such district for junior college
purposes; said county commissioners court shall have power to bring and defend litigation
in the name of said union junior college district.
