Sec. 9. (a) Except as provided in subsection (c), a merger approved under this chapter takes effect when:

(1) the officers of the new municipality are elected and qualified, as prescribed by section 13 of this chapter;  and

(2) a copy of the agreement under section 2 of this chapter or the certified election results under section 7 of this chapter are filed with:

(A) the office of the secretary of state;  and

(B) the circuit court clerk of each county in which the municipality is located.

(b) On the effective date of the merger, the merging municipalities cease to exist and are merged into a single municipality of the class created by the combined population of the merging municipalities.  The new municipality shall be governed by the laws applicable to that class.

(c) A merger approved under this chapter may not take effect during the year preceding a year in which a federal decennial census is conducted.  A merger that would otherwise take effect during the year preceding a year in which a federal decennial census is conducted takes effect January 1 of the year in which a federal decennial census is conducted.

(d) Notwithstanding subsection (c) as that subsection existed on December 31, 2009, a merger that took effect January 2, 2010, because of the application of subsection (c), as that subsection existed on December 31, 2009, is instead considered to take effect January 1, 2010, without any additional action being required.
