The legislative authority of any municipal corporation desiring to co-operate as above, may, by resolution, propose such co-operation to the director, and a copy of such resolution, which shall set forth the proportion of the cost and expense to be contributed by the municipal corporation, shall be filed with the director. The subsequent proceedings shall be conducted as provided in sections 5521.01 to 5521.11 of the Revised Code.
