§ 18-15-910. Consequences of viewers' report

Universal Citation: AR Code § 18-15-910 (2018)
  • (a) On receiving the report of the viewers, the county court shall cause the report to be read publicly upon the second day of the term.

  • (b) If no objection shall be made to the report and the court is satisfied that the public landing will be of sufficient importance to the public as to cause the damages and the compensation which have been assessed to be paid by the county, that the assessment is reasonable and just, and that the report of the viewers is favorable thereto, then the court shall order the compensation for the property to be paid to the person entitled thereto from the county treasury, and thenceforth the property shall be considered a public landing.

  • (c) But if the court shall be of the opinion that the public landing is not of sufficient public utility for the county to pay the assessed compensation and damages and the petitioners refuse to pay the compensation and damages, then the public landing shall not be declared a public landing, and the costs accruing by reason of the application shall be paid by the petitioners as provided in this subchapter.

  • (d)

    • (1) If the report of the viewers is against the proposed public landing or, if in the opinion of the court, the proposed public landing is not of public utility, then no further proceedings shall be had thereon.

    • (2) The obligor in the bond securing costs and expenses shall be liable for the full amount of the costs and expenses.
