6115.28 Taking or damage to cemetery.

Whenever it is necessary for the purposes of a sanitary district to take or damage any cemetery, the board of appraisers of the sanitary district shall appraise the cost of such taking or easement in the same manner as appraisals are made for other property.

The board of directors of the sanitary district shall have the same powers in case of the removal of a cemetery to agree with the authorities owning or controlling said cemetery in the same manner that a board of township trustees is authorized by section 517.21 of the Revised Code. In case of agreement, the board of directors may purchase the necessary land, and remove or contract for the removal of those buried, together with all monuments. The board of directors may also contract for an easement therein if removal is not desired.

If condemnation proceedings are necessary, they shall be instituted and conducted according to sections 163.01 to 163.22, inclusive, of the Revised Code.
