Notwithstanding Section 36523, prior to adopting any new or increased assessment, the city council shall give notice pursuant to Section 54954.6 of the Government Code in lieu of publishing notice pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 36523.
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.
