Visual Force Controller: Method Does Not Exist or Incorrect Signature

I haven't dealt with writing code for Visualforce pages yet. We have a search function for contacts that allows you to search by Zipcode and City. We want to add the ability to search by State and by contact Owner. I have adjusted most of the code so far, but I'm getting a 

 

Line 84: "Method Does Not Exist or Incorrect Signature: getContactsByState(LIST<String>)" error.

 

Do I have to define this method in the visualforce page as well with a Script? If code is needed:

public with sharing class TerritorySearchController

    public String searchValue { public get; public set; }

The "Incorrect Signature" part of the message is the problem.  The getContactsByState() method is defined to receive a String param, but the param that you are sending it, lStates, is a List of Strings.

Thank you! Was forgetting:
