The city council, by ordinance, may modify the provisions of this chapter and may disestablish the district or parts of the district, after adopting a resolution of intention to such effect. Such resolution shall describe the proposed change or changes, or indicate that it is proposed to disestablish the area, and shall state the time and place of a hearing to be held by the city council to consider the proposed action. If the operators of hotels which pay fifty percent or more of the assessments in the district file a petition with the clerk of the city of San Luis Obispo to adopt a resolution of intention to modify or disestablish the district, the city council shall adopt such resolution and act upon it as required by law. Signatures on such petition shall be those of a duly authorized representative of the operators of hotels in the district. In the event the resolution proposes to modify any of the provisions of this chapter, including changes in the existing assessments or in the existing boundaries of the district, such proceedings shall terminate if protest is made by the operators of hotels which pay fifty percent or more of the assessments in the district, or in the district as it is proposed to be enlarged.
In the event the resolution proposes disestablishment of the district, the city council shall disestablish the district; unless at such hearing, protest against disestablishment is made by the operators of hotels paying fifty percent or more of the assessments in the district.
