The City <br />Attorney explained that the maximum term of such a district is <br />five years and that as the old districts, such as No's 5, 6, 7, <br />8 and 10, expire, they are all being placed into the said <br />Lighting Maintenance District No. 12, in an endeavor to put all <br />the districts into one. <br /> <br />Mayor Dennis then declared the hearing closed. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />1-21-58 <br />
