6101.03 Evidence and forms.

(A) In any orders of the court, the words "The court now here finds that it hath jurisdiction of the parties to and of the subject matter of this proceeding" are equivalent to a finding that each jurisdictional fact necessary to confer plenary jurisdiction upon the court, beginning with the proper signing and filing of the initial petition to the date of the order containing that recital, has been scrutinized by the court and has been found to meet every legal requirement imposed by this chapter.

(B) No other evidence of the legal hypothecation of special assessments to the payment of bonds is required than the passage of a bonding resolution by the board of directors of a conservancy district and the issuance of bonds in accordance with the resolution.

(C) In the preparation of any assessment or appraisal record, the usual abbreviations employed by engineers, surveyors, and abstractors may be used.

(D) Where properly to describe any parcel of land, it would be necessary to use a long description, the board of appraisers of a conservancy district, after locating the land generally, may refer to the book and page of the public record of any instrument in which the land is described, which reference shall suffice to identify for all the purposes of this chapter the land described in the public record so referred to.

(E) It is not necessary in any notice required to be published to specify the names of the owners of the lands or of the persons interested in the lands. A notice may be addressed "To All Persons or Public Corporations Interested" with like effect as though the notice named by name every owner of any lands within the territory specified in the notice, every person interested in the lands, and every lienor, actual or inchoate, with respect to the lands.

(F) Every district declared upon hearing to be a conservancy district shall become upon that declaration a political subdivision and a public corporation of the state, invested with all the powers and privileges conferred upon conservancy districts by this chapter.
