PART VII. EXTRATERRITORIAL EXERCISE OF POWERS
§8-12-19. Extraterritorial exercise of powers and authority.
Wherever the powers and authority granted in this chapter
cannot be reasonably and efficiently exercised by confining the
exercise thereof within the corporate limits of the municipality,
the powers and authority of the municipality shall extend beyond
the corporate limits to the extent necessary to the reasonably
efficient exercise of such powers and authority within the
corporate limits. Such powers and authority, unless otherwise
provided in this code or elsewhere in law, shall not, however,
extend more than one mile beyond the corporate limits, and such
powers and authority shall not extend into the corporate limits of
another municipality without the consent of the governing body
