The by-laws of a district may provide, or be amended to provide, for a board of five or seven members, and, if the original by-laws so provide, five or seven eligible persons respectively shall be elected as trustees at each election, or, if the by-laws are amended, then five or seven eligible persons shall be elected at the next district election held subsequent to the date of amendment, and at each election held thereafter.
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.
