53.3. Not later than 15 days before a public meeting is held, the secretary shall publish a notice of the date, time and place and the purpose of the meeting in a newspaper circulated in the territory of the responsible body.
The notice must contain a summary of the documents referred to in sections 49 and 53.11.2 or 53.11.4, describing the main effects of the proposed amendment on the territory concerned.
Every meeting concerns the whole territory of the responsible body, unless meetings are planned in all the local municipal territories situated within the territory of the responsible body, or unless the responsible body, in its decision under the first paragraph of section 53.2, specifically identified the local municipal territories that each meeting concerns, so as to ensure that no territory is overlooked.
If all the meetings concern the whole territory of the responsible body, the secretary may give a single notice for all of them not later than 15 days before the first meeting is held.
If the council of the responsible body so chooses, the summary, rather than being included in the notice provided for in the first paragraph, may be mailed or distributed to every address in the territory concerned not later than 15 days before the first or only meeting is held. In that case, a notice of the date, time and place and the purpose of every meeting planned shall be enclosed with the summary.
Every notice must mention that a copy of the documents referred to in sections 49 and 53.11.2 or 53.11.4 and of the summary of those documents may be consulted at the office of the responsible body and, if applicable, at the office of every partner body.
