AR Code § 14-250-108 (2014) What's This?

(a) Upon the date and at the time and place named in the notice, the circuit court shall meet, and shall hear all persons who wish to appear and advocate or resist the establishment of the district and, if the court, after being satisfied as to the sufficiency of the petition and the proceedings thereon, finds and deems it is in the best interests of the persons residing or owning property within the boundaries of the proposed district that the district be established under the terms of this chapter, then the court shall enter its order establishing a district embracing the territory described in the petition, subject to all the terms and provisions in this chapter, and designating a name for the wastewater district. The order establishing the wastewater district shall have all the force and effect of a judgment.

(b) Any person aggrieved by the entry of the order by the court may appeal, as in other cases of appeal to the Supreme Court, from the order within thirty (30) days after the order has been made, but, if no appeal is taken within that time, the order authorizing and creating the district shall be deemed conclusive and any person residing in the district may, in like manner and time appeal from any order refusing to establish the district.
