Notice of the next annual meeting or special meeting described in this subsection shall be made to all property owners by first-class mail not less than 14 days prior to the date of the annual or special meeting. The notice shall include the specific location and the scheduled date and time of the meeting.

The proceeds of any physical assets disposed of by the business improvement zone and all money collected through assessments that is not required to defray the expenses of the business improvement zone shall be refunded on a pro rata basis to persons from whom assessments were collected. If the board finds that the refundable amount is so small as to make impracticable the computation and refunding of the money, it may be transferred to the treasurer of the city or village in which the business improvement zone is located for deposit in the treasury of the city or village to the credit of the general fund.
