  • § 411-601. Withdrawal by a member municipality

    A member municipality may withdraw from the District upon the following terms and conditions:

    (1) A member municipality may withdraw from the District upon a positive vote of the legal voters of the municipality to withdraw at a duly warned regular or special meeting of the municipality. Any withdrawing municipality shall continue to be obligated to pay to the District its share of all debt incurred by the District prior to its withdrawal; its share of the cost of all long-term contracts entered into by the District prior to its withdrawal; and all costs, including costs for legal services incurred by the District, in connection with such withdrawal. A withdrawing municipality shall, in addition, be liable to the District for any subsequent liability incurred by the District by reason of any actions or omissions of the District during the time the withdrawing municipality was a member of the District, the withdrawing municipality's liability being the total of the District's liability multiplied by the fraction the numerator of which is the total volume of waste disposed of by the withdrawing municipality during the period the liability was created, and the denominator of which is the total volume of waste disposed of by the District during the period the liability was created.

    (2) No member municipality may withdraw from the District until at least one year after the District commences to be a body politic and corporate, and may withdraw from the District only if the District has not voted to bond for construction and improvements.

    (3) Any withdrawal by a member municipality shall take place in accordance with the procedures set forth in 24 V.S.A. § 4863(h) and (j).
