12-154. Election to change name of city; resolution or petition therefor; similarity to name of another city, certificate of secretary of state. The governing body of any city may by resolution, and shall when presented with a petition requesting such action signed by not less than ten percent (10%) of the legally qualified electors residing in such city, cause to be submitted to the electors of such city a proposition to change its name. Such resolution or petition shall specify the name to be substituted for the existing name of such city. Before adopting such a resolution the governing body shall secure from the secretary of state and file with the city clerk a certificate that the proposed name is not so similar to the name of another city in this state as to result in an objectionable confusion of names within the state. Any petition filed under this act shall be accompanied by a similar certificate.
