REGIONAL SOLID WASTE OR DOMESTIC SEPTAGE DISPOSAL DISTRICTS
31-4903. Establishment of districts. Any two (2) or more counties within the state may establish an independent public body corporate and politic to be known as a regional solid waste or domestic septage district (with such additional designation as the district board may select), consisting of such counties as may elect, by resolution of the commissioners of such counties, to become participating counties of such district. The boundaries of a district shall be coterminous with the boundaries of the participating counties. Counties within a district need not be contiguous to each other. No district shall transact any business nor exercise any powers hereunder until or unless the commissioners of two (2) or more of such counties, by resolution, shall declare their intent to participate in a district. Any county which does not so elect to become a participating county shall not be subject to the provisions of this chapter.
In any suit, action, or proceeding involving or relating to any contract, resolution, regulation, or other action of a district, the district shall be conclusively deemed to have been organized and authorized to transact business and to exercise its powers hereunder upon proof of the adoption of a resolution by the commissioners of not less than two (2) counties as provided hereinabove. A duly certified copy of any such resolution shall be admissible in evidence in any suit, action, or proceeding.
A district created pursuant to this chapter shall not be deemed to be an agency of the state of Idaho nor of any of its political subdivisions for purposes of article VIII of the Idaho constitution.
