Metropolitan utilities districts; extension of service beyond corporate limits; procedure.
Any metropolitan utilities district is hereby given power to extend water mains, gas mains, and other utility service under its operation and management beyond the corporate limits of the city so as to include adjacent territory, sanitary and improvement districts, unincorporated areas, towns, or villages, even though in an adjoining county or counties, and may create such water main, gas main, and other utility service districts within such adjacent sanitary and improvement districts, unincorporated areas, cities, towns, and villages, even though located in an adjoining county or counties. When such water mains, gas mains, or other utility service districts are created in an adjoining county or counties, the special tax levy in such districts shall be certified to the county treasurer of such adjoining county or counties, as the case may be, and shall there be entered of record against the proper real estate so taxed. It shall be the duty of the county treasurer of the adjoining county or counties, as the case may be, to collect the taxes and as collected to report and transmit such taxes to the district.
