Written protests or objections to the formation of the district or to its extent within the county may be filed in the office of the clerk of the board of supervisors of any affected county at any time prior to the hour fixed for the hearing. At the hearing the board of supervisors shall consider only the protests or objections filed pursuant to this section.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
