If a majority of the votes cast at the election are in favor of dissolving the district,
the board shall cause to be published in the newspaper or newspapers of general circulation
where the district is located, and in the official newspaper of each county in which
the district is located, a notice to the creditors of the district, except holders
of district bonds or district improvement warrants, requiring any person having a
claim against the district to submit and file such claim with the secretary of the
board within one year after the first publication of the notice, at the place specified
in such notice. The notice shall be published as many times as the board shall direct, but not less
than once each week for three consecutive weeks. The secretary of the district shall mail, or cause to be mailed, by registered or
certified mail, a copy of such notice to each creditor, except any holder of district
bonds or district improvement warrants, known to the secretary or of record in the
secretary's office. After such notice is given, a copy thereof with the affidavit of publication and
affidavit of mailing shall be filed in the office of the secretary of the district. Any claim not thus presented, except any claim of a holder of district bonds or
warrants, shall be barred forever against such district and against all officers thereof
or property therein. None of the provisions of this chapter shall be construed to limit or impair the
rights of owners or holders of district bonds or district improvement warrants.
