(c) The Environmental Quality Commission approves the expansion.

(2) Any regional authority may be dissolved by written consent of the governing bodies of all participating counties and cities.

Notes of Decisions

Where regional air pollu­tion authority had ceased func­tioning upon being taken over by Environ­mental Quality Commission, no formal dissolu­tion of authority had occurred, and authority’s assets had been disposed of by authority’s city and county members, such members were liable to former employee of regional authority for wage claim which arose prior to disposal of assets.
