The board of trustees of a community college district, and its agents, shall co-operate with the boards of county commissioners of the county or counties comprising the district, with boards of education in the district, and with other public agencies representing the people of the district, in providing for educational, social, civic, and recreation activities, in buildings and upon ground under control of the board of trustees; provided, that such co-operation does not interfere with the principal purpose of such district which is to provide educational service beyond the high school for the people of such district. The board of trustees shall prescribe such rules and regulations for occupancy of such buildings and grounds as will secure a fair, reasonable, and impartial use of the same. In the event the need for a community college ceases to exist, the board of trustees may, by a two-thirds vote of its members, declare the district dissolved and, within ninety days of such vote, shall notify the secretary of state of this action. The board of trustees shall dispose of the land and all physical facilities of the district not later than three years after the secretary of state is notified of the dissolution of the district. Disposition of the land and the physical facilities shall be made by sale in such manner as to realize the greatest return to the district. Money obtained from any sale shall be apportioned and deposited forthwith in the treasury or treasuries of the county or counties that created the district, in the proportion to which the taxpayers of the county or counties have contributed to the support of the community college district during the period of its existence, by the district board of trustees as its last act before going out of existence. In the event of any dissolution of any community college district organized pursuant to sections 3354.01 to 3354.18 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, such dissolution shall not affect the liability of any property in such district to the levy of any taxes for the purpose of paying the principal and interest of any bonds or anticipatory notes issued under such sections. In the event of any such dissolution, or in the event of any failure on the part of the officers of any district to qualify and act, or in the event of any resignations or vacancies in office which prevent action by said district or by its proper officers, the county auditor and all other officers charged in any manner with the duty of levying and collecting taxes for public purposes in any county in which such property is situated shall perform all acts which are necessary to the levying and collecting of any taxes which are necessary to pay the principal and interest of such bonds or notes. Any holder of any bonds or notes issued pursuant to sections 3354.01 to 3354.18 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, or any person or officer who is a party in interest may, either by suit, action, or mandamus, enforce and compel performance of the duties required by such sections of any of the officers or persons mentioned in such sections.
