Decree of court
(1)The court in its decree shall have power to make the orders necessary to carry out said proposition or plan for the liquidation of the indebtedness and distribution of the property of said district, including the right to apportion any indebtedness found due, and to declare said portions of any said indebtedness liens upon the various parcels and lots of land within the district, and may decree a sale or exchange of its assets in such manner as may effectuate said proposition, as the said court may judge best, and as, in the opinion of the court, provides an adequate security for the ultimate payment or complete liquidation of all the indebtedness of said district. Said sale or exchange of said assets may be made either in one lot or in such parcels as may be provided, and the decree may provide for conveyance of said irrigation system, including the dams, reservoirs, canals, franchises, and water rights, and also of all of the other assets of the district and for the exchange thereof for outstanding indebtedness and the cancellation of such indebtedness. Said court may also provide by decree for the ultimate payment of all or any part of the indebtedness of said district by directing a continuance of the levy and assessment of taxes upon the lands included in said district in the manner provided by the laws of this state in relation to irrigation districts.
(2)At any time prior to the actual execution of the proposed plan for dissolution, whether before or after entry of the decree, the proceeding for approval of such plan may be dismissed by the court and such dissolution may be abandoned when it is made to appear to the court that a majority of the qualified electors of the irrigation district have voted for the dismissal of such proceeding and abandonment of such proposed dissolution at an election regularly held for the purpose of voting on such question and that such dissolution plan and proceeding can feasibly and equitably be abandoned and dismissed at that time. Notice of such election shall be given in the same manner and for the same time as notice of election of directors of an irrigation district under the laws of the state of Colorado, and such notice shall specify the time of holding the election and the matter to be voted upon. Such election shall be held and the result thereof determined and declared in all respects as nearly as practicable in conformity with the provisions governing the election of directors in irrigation districts. The court in its decree dismissing any such proceeding under the provisions of this subsection (2) has the power to make all orders necessary to effectuate the abandonment of such dissolution plan and the continuation of such irrigation district.
