2-628.Same; withdrawal of counties from extension districts; procedure; effect; disposition of property and obligations; supplemental agreements. (a) (1) Prior to July 1 of any year, the board of county commissioners of any county included within an extension district, the governing body of the extension district and the director of extension or the  director's authorized representative may agree to withdraw such county from the extension district by a majority voting in favor of the withdrawal.  (2) The board of county commissioners in such county shall request such withdrawal by adopting a resolution therefor. No such resolution may be adopted by a board of county commissioners unless the proposed withdrawal request resolution is on the published agenda of the meeting at which it is to be considered for adoption and the governing body of the extension district and the board of county commissioners of each other county included within the extension district have received written notice of the proposed withdrawal request resolution prior to such meeting.  (3) Immediately following notification, the chairperson of the governing body of the extension district shall call a meeting of the body to establish whether the governing body of the extension district is in favor of such county withdrawing from the extension district.  (4) Any agreement to withdraw a county from an extension district shall be effective on the January 1 occurring after a majority has voted in favor of the agreement pursuant to subparagraph (a)(1).

(b) If one county withdraws from an extension district composed of two counties, the extension district is dissolved on the January 1 occurring after adoption of the withdrawal resolution. The property and obligations of the dissolved extension district shall be transferred to and assumed by the two counties in accordance with the agreement entered into to establish or expand the extension district under K.S.A. 2-623, and amendments thereto, as the case may be, or in accordance with a supplemental agreement which may be entered into by such counties for that purpose.

(c) If a county withdraws on January 1 of any year from an extension district composed of three or more counties, the extension district shall continue in existence and shall be composed of all counties remaining within the extension district. On the January 1 that a county withdraws from an extension district, the governing body of the extension district shall be reconstituted and shall be composed of those persons who were members of the governing body prior to January 1 and who were elected by the electors of counties remaining within the extension district. The members of the reconstituted governing body shall continue to serve for the remainder of the terms to which they were elected and shall organize as provided in K.S.A. 2-624 and amendments thereto. All property and obligations of the extension district prior to any such January 1 shall remain the property and obligations of the extension district unless otherwise agreed to under the agreement entered into to establish or expand the extension district under K.S.A. 2-623, and amendments thereto, as the case may be, or in accordance with a supplemental agreement which may be entered into by the board of county commissioners of the withdrawn county and the reconstituted governing body of the continued extension district for that purpose.
