6119.111 Acquisition of interests in land.

A regional water and sewer district may acquire by purchase, whenever it considers such purchase expedient, any land, property, rights-of-way, franchises, easements, and other interests in lands as it considers are necessary or convenient for the construction and operation of any water resource project, upon such terms and at such price as it considers reasonable and can be agreed upon between the district and the owner thereof, and take title thereto in the name of the district.

All political subdivisions may lease, lend, grant, convey or otherwise make available to a regional water and sewer district at its request, upon such terms as the proper authorities of such political subdivisions consider reasonable and fair, without the necessity for an advertisement, auction, order of court, or other action or formality, other than the regular and formal action of the political subdivision concerned, any real property or interests therein including improvements thereto or thereon or personal property which is necessary or convenient to the effectuation of the authorized purposes of the district, including public roads and other real property or interests therein together with improvements thereto or thereon or personal property already devoted to public use.
