A petition for the division of a township as provided in section 58-02-19, addressed to the board of county commissioners and signed by a majority of the qualified
electors residing within the proposed township, may be presented to the board at any
regular meeting of the board. Notice of the time and place of the hearing on such petition must be given at least
thirty days prior to such hearing by the publication of such notice at least three
times in the newspaper in which the proceedings of the board of county commissioners
are published, or if there is no such newspaper, the notice must be posted in at least
three public places in the proposed new township and in at least three public places
in the remainder of the township affected by the division. One of such notices must be posted at the place where the last township election
was held for the township from which the separation is sought.
