follows:
  1. In the event it is proposed to annex territory, the governing board
or boards of the local government or governments to which it is proposed
to  annex  such  territory  and  the  governing  board  or boards of the
affected local government or governments  in  which  such  territory  is
situated  shall,  within  twenty  days  after  receipt  of a petition or
adoption of a joint  resolution  to  initiate  annexation,  respectively
cause a notice to be published once in its or their official newspapers,
or,  if  there be no official newspaper, in a newspaper published in the
county and having general circulation within  the  area  of  such  local
government  or  governments,  as the case may be. The governing board of
each affected local government in which such territory is situated  also
shall  cause a copy of such notice to be mailed to each person or corpo-
ration owning real property in such  territory  as  shown  by  the  last
preceding  assessment roll and to all persons residing in such territory
qualified to vote for officers of the city, town or village, as the case

the territory to be annexed  is  situated  wholly  or  partly  within  a
village,  the governing board of such village and the governing board of
a town or towns in which such territory is wholly or partly situated may
provide by agreement for joint publication and mailing of such  notice.]
