                         CHAPTER 53-H.F.No. 422 
           An act relating to cities; providing for distribution 
          of public notices in cities of the fourth class in the 
          metropolitan area; amending Minnesota Statutes 1990, 
          section 331A.03.  
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1990, section 331A.03, is 
amended to read: 
    331A.03 [WHERE NOTICE PUBLISHED.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [GENERALLY.] Except as provided in 
subdivision 2, a public notice shall be published in a qualified 
newspaper, and except as otherwise provided by law, in one that 
is likely to give notice in the affected area or to whom it is 
directed.  When a statute or other law requires publication in a 
newspaper located in a designated municipality or area and no 
qualified newspaper is located there, publication shall be made 
in a qualified newspaper likely to give notice unless the 
particular statute or law expressly provides otherwise.  If no 
qualified newspaper exists, then publication is not required.  
    Subd. 2.  [EXCEPTION; CERTAIN CITIES OF THE FOURTH 
CLASS.] A public notice required to be published by a statutory 
or home rule charter city of the fourth class located in the 
metropolitan area defined in section 473.121, subdivision 2, is 
not required to be published in a qualified newspaper if there 
is no qualified nondaily newspaper of general circulation in the 
city, provided the notice is printed in a newsletter or similar 
printed means of giving notice that is prepared by the city and 
either mailed or delivered to each household in the city.
