98. The jurisdiction of the arts council extends to every municipal corporation whose territory is wholly or partly situated within a radius of fifty kilometres from the territorial limits of the Community and which has expressed the wish therefor by a resolution of its council transmitted to the secretary of the Community.
The council of such a municipal corporation is empowered to pass the resolution provided for in the first paragraph.
The resolution remains in force for a period of three years; it is thereafter renewed by tacit renewal every three years for a new period of three years unless the municipal corporation has given to the secretary of the Community a notice to the contrary effect at least six months before the date of expiration of the three year period then in progress.
The arts council has jurisdiction in respect of the municipal corporation as long as the resolution remains in force.
