Governing Body approves resolution directing City Clerk to provide public notice of the assessment hearing. Notice is published and mailed to I.D. members. 10 days must elapse between the notice publication and the hearing date. After the hearing is closed, the assessment ordinance is approved by the Governing Body and published thereafter.
