59. The Minister shall transmit to the representative and to the regional county municipality a written notice indicating the time granted to them for the presentation of a proposal for the negotiation of an agreement on the apportionment of the assets and liabilities relating to the territory of the municipality.
He may, upon a request therefor by the representative or the regional county municipality, grant them an extension.
The first two paragraphs do not apply where the application for constitution contains the apportionment of the assets and liabilities and has been approved by the regional county municipality. Nor do they apply where the Minister has already received either a copy of the decision of the representative or of the resolution of the regional county municipality proposing the negotiation of an agreement on such an apportionment, or a copy of the agreement they have reached.
