Nothing contained in this chapter authorizes or empowers the board of directors of any people’s utility district to interfere with or exercise any control over any existing utility owned and operated by any electric cooperative or city in the district unless by consent of the governing body of the electric cooperative or of the city council or the governing body of the plant owned by a city, when the control of the plant is vested in a governing body other than the city council or governing body of the city.
