On or before September 1 of each year, following service of the notice, any political subdivision may serve notice, in writing, upon the attorney general that it desires to contest the legality of the state's claim, and the attorney general shall forthwith file with the court administrator of the district court of the county having such examination, or in which the political subdivision, or major part thereof, is situated, a verified statement of the state's claim, duly itemized and serve upon the auditor, clerk, or chief administrative officer of the political subdivision, by certified mail, a copy of such statement. The political subdivision may file with the court administrator of such district court, within ten days after the service of such statement upon it, verified objections to the state's claim, and such district court shall thereupon summarily, in or out of term, hear and determine the amount due the state, if any, for such examination, at a time and place fixed by the court therefor. The court administrator of court shall certify to the county auditor of the county having such examination, or to the county auditor of the county or counties in which the political subdivision is situated, the amount so determined by the court to be due to the state, if any.
