(3) The contract for the conditional transfer of property may provide for the transfer of a function or duty otherwise assigned by this act to the township from which the property is transferred, as provided by Act No. 425 of the Public Acts of 1984.
(4) Notwithstanding any other provision of this act, a local unit to which property within an authority district is transferred, and its public officials, officers, employees, agents, and appointees, have the same authority, rights, immunities, and duties under this act as a township, its public officials, officers, employees, agents, and appointees in carrying out a function or duty assumed by the local unit under subsection (3).
(5) If the local unit to which property is transferred has jurisdiction over roads, then it shall have the same power over roads as granted to the board of county road commissioners under section 18(2).
