The secretary shall cause a notice of the filing of the petition for exclusion of lands to be published for at least once a week for two weeks in some newspaper published in the county where the office of the board is situated.

In case of the posting of such notices, one of such notices shall be so posted on the lands proposed to be excluded.

The time to be specified in the notice at which they shall be required to show cause shall be the regular meeting of the board next after the expiration of the time for the publication of the notice.
