  • § 865. Complaint to dissolve circuit or station

    The trustees of the Troy Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church or any member of the board of trustees, when duly authorized thereto by a vote of the board, may apply by complaint to the superior court within the county where such circuit or station is located for the relief prayed for in section 864 of this title. Upon the filing of such complaint in such court, a hearing shall be had upon such notice as shall be ordered by such court. If upon hearing it shall be found by such court that the case is brought within the provisions of section 864 and that the transfer of property prayed for ought, in equity and good conscience, to be made, the court shall make a decree in the premises that the circuit or station in question is dissolved or extinct and transfer the property described in the complaint to the Troy Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church to be held and used according to the discipline of such church and the provisions of its charter.
