33-2105. Addition of territory to community college districts. Any territory not in an existing community college district may become a part of a community college district by a vote of the school district electors resident of said territory, voting at an election called and held as herein provided.
A petition signed by not less than one hundred (100) school district electors of the territory proposed to be added to the community college district, or twenty percent (20%) of the school district electors within the territory, whichever is the lesser, describing the boundaries of the territory, and a true copy thereof, shall be filed with the board of trustees of the community college district. The board shall forward the original of said petition, with its recommendations, to the state board of education, and a copy thereof to the board of county commissioners of the home county of the community college district. The state board of education shall consider such petition, as it is required to consider a petition for the formation of a community college district. If it approve the petition, notice to that effect shall be given the board of trustees of the community college district and to the board of county commissioners of the home county of the community college district.
When any such petition has been approved by the state board of education, an election shall be held in the manner of elections for the creation of a community college district, except that polling places shall be established only in the territory proposed to be added to the district. The question shall be deemed approved only if a majority of the votes cast in the territory were cast in favor of the proposal, and if this be the case, the territory shall be part of said community college district with all the force and effect as though said territory had been originally included in said community college district at the time of its original organization.
Notices to and by boards of county commissioners and to the state board of education shall be as provided in section 33-2104, Idaho Code. The state board of education shall notify the state liquor division that such territory has become a part of the community college district.
