      1.  Subject to the limitations contained in subsection 2, the board of county commissioners of each county shall, from time to time, as the public good may require:

      (a) Divide the county into a convenient number of townships; and

      (b) Cause a description of such division to be published at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in the county within 10 days after adoption.

      2.  Not more than one incorporated city in any county shall be included within the same township. When any real property lying in one established township is annexed pursuant to law by an incorporated city lying within an adjacent established township, the boundaries of the township in which the annexing incorporated city lies shall be deemed to be extended to include the real property so annexed without further action of the board of county commissioners.
