(A)   The Board, after publishing notice of the hearing, shall hold a hearing on the proposed coordinated drainage area at which any interested person may appear. If the Board is satisfied that the proposed drainage area is in the public interest and that all requirements of SDCL Ch. 46A-10A have been met, it may approve the creation of the coordinated drainage district pending the assent of a majority of the landowners within the drainage area at an election to be held within one month of the hearing. However, if the landowners signing the petition represented a majority of the resident landowners in the proposed district, no election need be held.
   (B)   The Board, prior to holding a hearing on a petition to establish a coordinated drainage area, shall publish notice of the hearing in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected. The notice shall be published at least 14 days in advance of the hearing date.
