(F)(1) If the board of county commissioners of a county that is being served by a community alternative sentencing center established pursuant to division (E) of this section determines that it no longer wants to be served by the center, the board may dissolve the center by adopting a resolution evidencing the determination to dissolve the center.
(2) If the boards of county commissioners of all of the counties served by any district community alternative sentencing center established pursuant to division (E) of this section determine that they no longer want to be served by the center, the boards may dissolve the center by adopting in each county a resolution evidencing the determination to dissolve the center.
(3) If at least one, but not all, of the boards of county commissioners of the counties being served by any district community alternative sentencing center established pursuant to division (E) of this section determines that it no longer wants to be served by the center, the board may terminate its involvement with the center by adopting a resolution evidencing the determination to terminate its involvement with the center. If at least one, but not all, of the boards of county commissioners of the counties being served by any community alternative sentencing center terminates its involvement with the center in accordance with this division, the other boards of county commissioners of the counties being served by the center may continue to be served by the center.

If the an eligible offender a court sentences to the center is admitted to the center, all of the following apply:
(a) The admission shall be under the terms and conditions established by the court and the administrator of the center, and the court and the administrator of the center shall provide for the confinement of the eligible offender and supervise the eligible offender as provided in divisions (H)(4)(b) to (f) of this section.

Inability to pay those reasonable expenses shall not be grounds for refusing to admit an otherwise eligible offender to the center.
