Upon receipt of the recommendation from the Planning Commission, Council shall set a time for a public hearing on the proposed amendment.
(a) Notice of the public hearing shall be given by Council according to the following:
(1) Notice of the proposed amendment shall be published at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of the required hearing, in one or more newspapers of general circulation in Carlisle.
(2) If the proposed amendment intends to rezone or redistrict ten (10) or less parcels of land, as listed on the tax duplicates, written notice of the hearing shall be mailed by the Clerk of Council by first class mail at least twenty (20) calendar days before the day of the public hearing to all owners of property within, contiguous to and directly across the street from such area proposed to be rezoned or redistricted to the address of such owners appearing on the County Auditor's current tax list or the County Treasurer's mailing list. The failure to deliver the notification, as provided in this section shall not invalidate any such amendment.
(3) Notices shall include the time and place of the public hearing, a summary of the proposed amendment and a statement that the opportunity to be heard will be afforded to any person interested.
(b) Council may recess such hearings from time to time, and, if the time and place of the continued hearing is publicly announced at the time of the adjournment, no further notice shall be required.
(c) During the thirty (30) days prior to the public hearing, the text of the proposed amendment, maps or plans, if applicable, and the recommendation of the Planning Commission shall be on file for public examination in the office of the Clerk of Council or in such other office as is designated by Council.
