An insufficient petition must be returned to the petitioners, who may resubmit a corrected version within 90 days.

(3) (a) All property within any addition to a district is subject to all existing indebtedness of the district.

(b) Property within an area removed from a district is not subject to the district's existing indebtedness if the area was added to the district within 5 years of the date on which the petition for removal was submitted to the transportation board.
