 majority of the members of the town board to the  formation  of  a  fire

 pursuant to a contract for fire protection under which a cash  consider-
 ation  is  received  by  the  corporation  or for which negotiations for
 renewal of such a contract are pending. The membership of any  volunteer
 member  shall  terminate  when he or she ceases to be a resident of such

 his  or  her continued membership where he or she notifies the secretary
 of the fire corporation (a) that he or she plans to change  his  or  her
 residence to a territory which is not in such inside or outside territo-
