The governing body of any city incorporated after July 1, 1978, but prior to January 1, 1980, may, by resolution, adopt an appropriations limit for the purposes of Article XIII B of the California Constitution determined in the following manner:

(a) If the city's first full fiscal year of operation was the 1979-80 fiscal year, the appropriations limit of the city for fiscal year 1980-81 shall be equal to the total amount of proceeds of taxes received for fiscal year 1979-80 adjusted to changes in the cost of living and population and such other changes as may be required or permitted by Article XIII B.

(b) If the city's first full fiscal year of operation is the 1980-81 fiscal year, the governing body of the city shall, prior to July, 1 1980, estimate the amount of revenue anticipated to be received by the city from the proceeds of taxers for the 1980-81 fiscal year. This amount shall be the appropriations limit of the city for the 1980-81 fiscal year. For the 1981-82 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the appropriations limit of the city shall be equal to the total amount of proceeds of taxes received for fiscal year 1980-81 adjusted for changes in the cost of living and population and such other changes as may be required or permitted by Article XIII B.
