36. The jurisdiction of the arts council extends to every municipality whose territory is situated in whole or in part within a 50-kilometre radius of the territory of the city and which has expressed such a desire by a resolution of its council transmitted to the clerk of the city.
The council of such a municipality 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 tacitly renewed every three years for a new three-year period unless the municipality has given the clerk of the city a notice to the opposite effect at least six months before the date of expiry of the three-year period then in effect.
The arts council has jurisdiction in respect of the municipality as long as the resolution remains in force.
