WY Stat § 22-29-305 (through 2012) What's This?

(a) The elections effecting enlargement, merger or consolidation shall be governed by the following specific rules:

(i) For enlargement elections, the voters of both the existing district and the area to be added shall be entitled to vote;

(ii) For merger and consolidation elections, the voters of all the affected districts shall be entitled to vote;

(iii) If a majority of those voting in each district on the proposition favor the proposition, then it shall pass;

(iv) For enlargement elections, if the voters of the existing district have approved by election a mill levy to finance the operation of the district, then the voters of the area to be added shall also be required at the enlargement election to approve the same mill levy. If a majority of the voters in the area to be added voting on the proposition fails to approve the mill levy, then the enlargement, whether or not approved under paragraph (iii) of this subsection, shall fail. This paragraph shall not apply to an enlargement in which no election is required under W.S. 22-29-301(a);

(v) For merger and consolidation elections, if the voters of an existing district have approved by election a mill levy to finance the operations of the district and the other district has no mill levy or a lower mill levy, the voters of that other district shall also be required at the merger or consolidation election to approve a mill levy at the same level as the existing district or increase an existing mill levy to the same level as the existing district. If a majority of the voters in the other district voting on the proposition fails to approve or increase the mill levy as required, then the merger or consolidation, whether or not approved under paragraph (iii) of this subsection, shall fail.
