Section 6115.67 | Conflicts in jurisdiction.


In case any sanitary district is being organized within, or partly within and partly without, the same territory in which some other district has been or is being organized, one judge of the court of common pleas of each county in which such districts have been or are being organized shall confer at the earliest convenient moment after they ascertain the possibility of a conflict in jurisdiction, the sitting to be had in the county having the largest assessed valuation in the proposed district.

At such conference, the several judges shall determine to what extent the several districts should be consolidated or to what extent the boundaries should be adjusted in order to most fully carry out the purposes of sections 6115.01 to 6115.79, inclusive, of the Revised Code. Such judges shall by suitable orders make such determination effective. If notices have been issued or jurisdiction acquired in any proceeding concerning territory which is transferred to the court of common pleas of another county, such notice shall not become void and jurisdiction so acquired shall not be lost; but in each case the court acquiring jurisdiction over such transferred territory shall hold the same without further notice, as if originally embraced in said district. At such conference the decision of the majority of the judges shall be final.

This section and section 6115.66 of the Revised Code do not operate to delay or to interrupt any proceeding under sections 6115.01 to 6115.79, inclusive, of the Revised Code, until the question of jurisdiction has been finally determined.
