new text end

new text begin (b) If a statutory or home rule charter city has an e-mail address from which it sends
notices or city information, the city must allow businesses to sign up for e-mail notification
of proposed ordinances. At least ten days before the statutory or home rule charter city holds
an initial hearing on an ordinance, the city must notify, by e-mail, any business that has
signed up for e-mail notification. If e-mail notification is available, the statutory or home
rule charter city must notify a business of the notification procedure any time a business
applies for a new license or for a license renewal. If the statutory or home rule charter city
does not have an e-mail address from which it sends notices or city information, the city
must post the notification of the proposed ordinance in the same location as other public
notices are posted. Failure to provide notice described in this section does not invalidate
the ordinance.
