Any town or city within this state, now incorporated under and by virtue of any special
or local law, and in which the citizens thereof desire incorporation as a city of
any special class under the general laws of this state, and believe that since the
taking of the last census, state or national, there has been sufficient increase in
population to entitle it to be incorporated as a city of a higher class than they
would be entitled to under said last census, may, by authority of an ordinance, and
at the expense of such town or city, cause to be taken a census of its population;
and should such census, when so taken, show that the town or city taking the same
has the requisite population to entitle it to become a city of the class desired,
then such town or city may proceed to secure such incorporation as its population
may entitle it to under and by authority of the provisions of chapter 72.
