The city council may exempt a business recently established in the area from the levy of the assessments, for a period not to exceed one year from the date the business commenced operating in the area. The city council shall state its determination to so exempt new businesses in the resolution of intention to establish the area and shall reaffirm its determination annually in the resolution of intention required to be adopted pursuant to Section 36534.
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.
