No municipality the area of which has been included (with its consent) within the area of operation of a parking authority created by a county shall thereafter create a parking authority.
Upon the creation of any such authority, the clerk shall certify a copy of the ordinance or resolution creating the parking authority, and also a copy of the resolution or ordinance appointing the first commissioners thereof, which documents shall be filed with the clerk of the county and be recorded in records of certificates of incorporation, and the clerk of the county shall cause duplicate certified copies of said documents to be filed forthwith with the Secretary of State.
