                         Laws of Minnesota 1983 

                         CHAPTER 18--H.F.No. 56
           An act relating to local government; providing for 
          orderly annexations in accordance with the terms of 
          the resolutions of local government units; amending 
          Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 414.0325, subdivision 
          1.  
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 414.0325, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
   Subdivision 1.  [INITIATING THE PROCEEDING.] One or more 
townships and one or more municipalities, by joint resolution, 
may designate an unincorporated area as in need of orderly 
annexation and may confer jurisdiction on the board over 
annexations in the designated area and over the various 
provisions in said agreement by submission of said joint 
resolution to the executive director.  The resolution shall 
include a description of the designated area.  Thereafter, an 
annexation of any part of the designated area may be initiated 
by submitting to the executive director a resolution of any 
signatory to the joint resolution or by the board of its own 
motion.  Whenever the pollution control agency or other state 
agency pursuant to sections 115.03, 115.071, 115.49, or any law 
giving a state agency similar powers, orders a municipality to 
extend a municipal service to a designated unincorporated area, 
such an order will confer jurisdiction on the Minnesota 
municipal board to consider designation of the area for orderly 
annexation.  
    If a joint resolution designates an area as in need of 
orderly annexation and states that no alteration of its stated 
boundaries is appropriate, the board may review and comment, but 
may not alter the boundaries.  
    If a joint resolution designates an area as in need of 
orderly annexation, provides for the conditions for its 
annexation, and states that no consideration by the board is 
necessary, the board may review and comment, but shall, within 
30 days, order the annexation in accordance with the terms of 
the resolution.
