After the final judgment, order, or decree upon any appeal is rendered by the court of common pleas, the clerk of the court of common pleas shall, within twenty-one days, make a transcript of the same and shall certify and transmit it with all original papers in the case to the clerk of the board of county commissioners, who shall forthwith enter the judgment, order, or decree upon the journal of the board. If the judgment, order, or decree is in favor of the granting of the improvement, the board shall proceed with the improvement proceedings in compliance with the final judgment, order, or decree from the point at which they were terminated by the appeal or from the point at which the court orders the board to proceed.

Upon the expiration of the twenty-one day appeal period provided in section 6131.25 of the Revised Code, the clerk of the board of county commissioners shall transmit the schedules of assessments and damages to the county auditor. The board of county commissioners and the county engineer shall proceed with letting contracts and constructing the improvement, and the county auditor shall proceed to levy and collect assessments and to pay compensation and damages as if no appeal had been taken. If an appeal is perfected to the court of appeals and a supersedeas bond is given, the board and the engineer shall stay their proceedings until the final determination of the proceedings in the court of appeals or in the supreme court.
