Article 4. Cancellation Of Unsold Bonds of California Public Utilities Code >> Division 9. >> Part 2. >> Chapter 5. >> Article 4.

If any bonds remain unsold for six months after having been offered for sale, the board of directors of the district for which the bonds were issued or of a district containing any territory which at the time of the bond election was embraced within the district for which the bonds were issued, may petition the board of supervisors to cause the unsold bonds to be withdrawn from the market and canceled.
Upon receiving a petition signed by a majority of the members of the board of directors, the board of supervisors shall fix a time for hearing the petition. The hearing shall be held not more than 30 days after receipt of the petition.
The board of supervisors shall publish a notice stating the time and place of the hearing and the object of the petition in general terms, pursuant to Section 6062 of the Government Code in a newspaper published in the district or, if there is no such newspaper, in a newspaper published at the county seat of an affected county.
At the time and place designated in the notice, or at any subsequent time to which the hearing is postponed, the board of supervisors shall hear any reason that may be submitted for or against the granting of the petition. If the board of supervisors deems it for the best interest of the district named in the petition that the unsold bonds be canceled, it shall make and enter an order in its minutes that the unsold bonds are canceled. Thereafter the bonds and the vote by which they were authorized to be issued have no validity whatever.
