  • Any changes in the boundaries of municipalities involving the annexation of unincorporated areas of the County shall be made subject to the provisions of Ordinance No. 89-81 granting an electric franchise to the Florida Power & Light Company, and shall be effective only upon the condition and with the reservation herein stated that the County shall continue to collect and receive all electric franchise revenues accruing within such annexed areas from the effective date of Ordinance No. 89-81 during the full term of the County franchise in the same manner as though such annexed areas remained a part of the unincorporated areas of the County. Every ordinance enacted to effectuate the annexation of unincorporated areas of the County to a municipality shall expressly set forth such condition, unless the Board of County Commissioners, for good cause, shall waive such condition by two-thirds vote of the entire membership of the board.
