(2) The required advertised notice of the proposed adoption of the consolidation or codification shall include:
(i) A listing of the table of contents.
(ii) A place within the city where a copy of the proposed consolidation or codification may be examined.

The advertisement giving notice of the proposed adoption shall list, in lieu of a table of contents, only the titles of each of the ordinances in the complete group or body of ordinances.
