A board of trustees shall be elected as provided in Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 50600) of Part 3 of this division unless the district is formed to operate without trustees pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 50400) of this part.
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.
