It must be determined that the formation of the local improvement district for the purposes set out in this article will promote the public convenience, necessity, and welfare.

(3)The report of said study shall be provided to the governing body and made available in its office to all owners of land within the proposed improvement district. The resolution of the governing body shall require that the public utility be provided with the name and address of the owner of each parcel or lot within the proposed improvement district, if known, and if not known the description of the property and such other matters as may be required by the public utility in order to perform the work involved in the cost study.
