                     Whereas, pursuant to Section 25-410(b) of the BID Law, an amendment to the District Plan that provides for any change in the method of assessment upon which the district charge is based may be adopted by local law, provided that the City Council determines, after a public hearing, that it is in the public interest to authorize such change and that the tax and debt limits prescribed in Section 25-412 of the BID Law will not be exceeded by such change; and

 

                     Whereas, the District wishes to amend the District Plan in order to provide for a change in method of assessment upon which the district charge is based; and

 

                     Whereas, pursuant to Section 25-410(b) of the BID Law, the City Council is required to give notice of the public hearing by publication of a notice in at least one newspaper having general circulation in the district specifying the time when and the place where the hearing will be held; now, therefore, be it
