On the date and at the time established for the hearing on a petition for a proposed improvement, the supervisors of a soil and water conservation district shall conduct the hearing. Prior to the hearing, landowners affected by the proposed improvement may file objections to it with the supervisors, and at the hearing the supervisors shall hear any objections so filed. In addition, the supervisors shall present their preliminary report on the proposed improvement and shall hear any evidence offered by any landowner for or against construction of the proposed improvement. If necessary, the hearing may occur on more than one day and may be adjourned from day to day or for a longer time that may be reasonable so that all interested landowners may have an opportunity to be heard in favor of or in opposition to the proposed improvement.
