  5.  Upon the filing of a petition or resolution with the county clerk from each of the service areas of the 911 central dispatch centers to be consolidated, the clerk shall present the petition or resolution to the commissioners of the county commission having jurisdiction, who shall order the submission of the question to voters within the affected 911 central dispatch center service areas.  The filing of a petition shall be no later than twelve months after any original voter's signature contained therein.

  8.  If the question of consolidation of the 911 central dispatch centers receives a majority of the votes cast in each service area, the county commissions having joint jurisdiction shall each enter an order declaring the proposition passed.

  9.  Within thirty days after the 911 central dispatch center has been declared consolidated, the respective county commissions having jurisdiction shall jointly meet to appoint a new seven-person board consisting of the agencies and professions listed in subsection 9 of section 190.335, and shall ensure geographic representation by appointing no more than four members from any one county having jurisdiction within the consolidated area for the newly consolidated 911 central dispatch center.

  10.  Within thirty days after the appointment of the initial board of directors of the newly consolidated 911 central dispatch center, the board of directors shall meet at a time and place designated by the county commissions.  At the first meeting, the newly appointed board of directors shall choose a name for the consolidated 911 central dispatch center and shall notify the clerks of the county commission of each county within which the newly consolidated 911 central dispatch center's service area now subsumes.

  13.  In any county that has a single board established under this chapter* or under section 321.243, if a consolidation under this section only affects existing 911 central dispatch centers located wholly within such county, the existing board shall vote as to whether the existing board shall continue to exist.  Upon a majority vote for approval of the existing board continuing to exist, subsections 9 to 12 of this section shall not apply, and the existing board shall continue to exist and have the powers set forth under the applicable section or sections within this chapter* or under section 321.243.  Upon a majority vote in disapproval of the existing board continuing to exist, all applicable subsections of this section shall apply to the consolidation.  A tied vote shall be considered a disapproval of the existing board continuing to exist.
