C. The district board may call such an election and shall call such an election if requested to do so in a petition signed by ten per cent of the property owners of the district.

D. The election shall be called and held in the same manner as an assessment levy election, except that the ballot shall contain the words " dissolution, yes" and " dissolution, no" .

E. All property in the district, except federal, state, county and municipal property, remains subject to the lien for the payment of ad valorem taxes levied, and any property subject to a special assessment lien remains subject to the lien notwithstanding dissolution of the district.

The district may continue to operate after dissolution only as needed to collect money and make payments on any outstanding bonds.
