CT Gen Stat § 7-228 (2012) What's This?

Any corporation desiring to enforce the obligation of any municipality, hereby imposed, to purchase any property shall file with the clerk of such municipality, within thirty days after the passage of the final vote whereby such municipality has decided to establish a plant, a detailed schedule, describing such property and stating the terms of sale proposed. If the parties fail to agree as to what shall be sold or what the terms of sale or delivery shall be, either party may, after thirty days after filing the schedule, apply by petition to the superior court for the judicial district in which such plant is located, or to any judge thereof in vacation, setting forth the facts and praying an adjudication between the parties, and thereafter such court or judge shall, after notice and hearing, appoint a special commission of one or three persons, who shall give the parties an opportunity to be heard and shall thereafter adjudicate whether the property contained in such schedule, real or personal, including rights and easements, properly belongs to such plant and should be sold by the one and purchased by the other and what the time, price and other conditions of sale and delivery thereof shall be. Such commission shall report its doings to the superior court for the judicial district in which the plant is located, for confirmation by said court.
