40-1505. Hearing -- Order for election -- Consolidation, when defeated. At the time and place specified in the notice, the county commissioners shall proceed to consider the petition and all written and oral objections, and shall hear all qualified persons in relation to it. Upon conclusion of the hearing, which may be continued from day to day, if a majority of the members of each of the commissioners of the counties involved are of the opinion that a consolidation is practical and to the best interests of each and all of the highway districts concerned, they shall make an order directing that the question of consolidation of the highway districts proposed for consolidation be submitted to the electors at an election to be held separately within each of the highway districts at a date in conformance with section 34-106(1), Idaho Code, but not less than ninety (90) days after the date of the order. The date of the election shall be specified in the order. The order shall set forth: the name, number, and general description of the respective highway districts proposed to be consolidated; the market value for assessment purposes of all the property situated in each of the concerned highway districts, as shown by the last county assessment rolls; the total bonded and current warrant and other indebtedness of each of the highway districts; the preceding ad valorem highway tax levy of each of the highway districts; and the total bonded and current warrant and other indebtedness of the proposed consolidated highway district. A copy of the order shall be entered in the minutes of the commissioners of each county concerned. The proposed consolidation shall be defeated if a majority of the commissioners of either of the counties concerned vote against it, and in that event a record of that action shall be entered in the minutes of each of the counties concerned.
