A. The special court created pursuant to § 15.2-4101 shall not be dissolved after rendering a decision granting any motion or petition
for transition to town status, but shall remain in existence for a period of ten years
from the effective date of any transition order entered, or from the date of any decision
of the Supreme Court affirming such an order. Vacancies occurring in the court during such ten-year period shall be filled by
designation of another judge from the panel provided for in Chapter 30 (§ 15.2-3000 et seq.) of this title.
B. The court may be reconvened at any time during the ten-year period on its own motion,
or on motion of the governing body of the county, or of the town, or on petition of
not less than fifteen percent of the registered voters of the town.
C. The court shall have power and it shall be its duty, at any time during such period,
to enforce the performance of the terms and conditions under which town status was
granted, and to issue appropriate process to compel such performance. The court may, in its discretion, award attorneys' fees, court and other reasonable
costs to the party or parties on whose motion the court is reconvened.
D. Any such action of the court shall be subject to review by the Supreme Court in
the same manner as is provided with respect to the original decision of the court.
