Section 900. Transition

3 AAC 110.900. Transition

(a) A petition for incorporation, annexation, merger, or consolidation must include a practical plan that demonstrates the capacity of the municipal government to extend essential city or essential borough services into the territory proposed for change in the shortest practicable time after the effective date of the proposed change. A petition for city reclassification under AS 29.04, or municipal detachment or dissolution under AS 29.06, must include a practical plan demonstrating the transition or termination of municipal services in the shortest practicable time after city reclassification, detachment, or dissolution.

(b) Each petition must include a practical plan for the assumption of all relevant and appropriate powers, duties, rights, and functions presently exercised by an existing borough, city, unorganized borough service area, and other appropriate entity located in the territory proposed for change. The plan must be prepared in consultation with the officials of each existing borough, city and unorganized borough service area, and must be designed to effect an orderly, efficient, and economical transfer within the shortest practicable time, not to exceed two years after the effective date of the proposed change.

(c) Each petition must include a practical plan for the transfer and integration of all relevant and appropriate assets and liabilities of an existing borough, city, unorganized borough service area, and other entity located in the territory proposed for change. The plan must be prepared in consultation with the officials of each existing borough, city, and unorganized borough service area wholly or partially included in the area proposed for the change, and must be designed to effect an orderly, efficient, and economical transfer within the shortest practicable time, not to exceed two years after the date of the proposed change. The plan must specifically address procedures that ensure that the transfer and integration occur without loss of value in assets, loss of credit reputation, or a reduced bond rating for liabilities.

(d) Before approving a proposed change, the commission may require that all boroughs, cities, unorganized borough service areas, or other entities wholly or partially included in the area of the proposed change execute an agreement prescribed or approved by the commission for the assumption of powers, duties, rights, and functions, and for the transfer and integration of assets and liabilities.
