Dear Mr. Fairchild:

I am writing in response to your letter dated March 2, 1987, in which you ask what entity should be listed as owner of personal property acquired by the Douglas County Extension Council. In this regard, I have enclosed a copy of Attorney General Opinion No. 84-56 for your review. Although the opinion does not specifically answer your question, it does state that county extension councils are municipalities with an existence separate from that of the county in which they are located and organized. Accordingly, since the Douglas County Extension Council is a separate entity apart from the county, the state or Kansas State University, it is our opinion that personal property owned by the council should be shown as property owned by the “Douglas County Extension Council.”

Thank you for your inquiry. We appreciate your continued cooperation in matters of mutual concern.

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
ROBERT T. STEPHAN
