Any local housing authority may, by written resolution, elect to dissolve, provided that no such dissolution or any transfer of property pursuant to dissolution shall occur unless all of the following conditions are met:

(1)  The governing body of the municipality or parish which established the local housing authority so dissolving shall have consented thereto.

(2)  The dissolving authority shall have designated another local housing authority or another municipality, parish, or public agency of this state, which may be the municipality or parish for which the authority was formed, as the transferee of its assets and liabilities in dissolution.

(3)  The local housing authority, municipality, parish, or other public agency receiving such property or assets and the political subdivision which established its consent thereto by resolution.

(4)  All obligees of bonds or other evidences of indebtedness of such transferring or dissolving authority, or the trustees for such obligees, or the federal government if the bonds or other obligations are secured by any contract right pursuant to a contract between the transferring authority and the federal government, shall have consented thereto in writing, or adequate provision shall have been made for the payment of such bonds or other obligations, by escrow or otherwise, the performance without breach or default of an obligation secured only by one or more developments or the income thereof shall be deemed to be "adequate provision".  Further, no such transfer shall in any way diminish or impair the obligations of any transferring authority.
