Investigation and estimation of cost of improvement by engineer

When the resolution is adopted or the petition is filed with it, the county court shall refer the resolution or petition to the engineer, who shall investigate the proposed improvement. If in the judgment of the engineer the improvement is feasible, the engineer shall make an estimate of the cost of the improvement and report the same to the county court. If the improvement is to be paid for in whole or in part by special assessments against property benefited by the improvement, the engineer shall include in the report:

(1) A recommendation as to the method of assessment to be used to arrive at a fair apportionment of the whole or any portion of the cost of the improvement to the properties specially benefited;

(2) The description and assessed value of each lot, parcel of land or portion thereof, to be specially benefited by the improvement, with the names of the record owners thereof; and

(3) Where the improvement petitioned for includes the construction and installation of lateral sewers, street mains or similar facilities, a separate statement of the estimated cost of the construction and installation of lateral sewers, street mains or similar facilities. [Amended by 1971 c.327 §2; 1973 c.461 §2]
