The hearing on the reports and schedules of the county engineers provided for by section 6133.08 of the Revised Code and all other proceedings relative to a proposed joint county improvement shall be had the same as in single county ditches. Claims for compensation for land taken or for damages to land may be appealed by an owner interested, or by the prosecuting attorney, to the court of common pleas of the county in which the land for which the owner claims compensation or damages is located. All claims for compensation or damages which are allowed shall be paid out of the treasury of the county in which such land is located. The county auditor of the county in which the petition is filed shall certify the amounts of compensation or damages so found by the joint board of county commissioners to the auditors of the other counties, respectively, for payment.
If an appeal is taken on the question of compensation or damages, the auditor of the county in which the petition is filed shall transmit to the clerk of the court of common pleas of the county in which the land of the appellant is located the original papers relating to the claim for compensation or damages and a certified transcript of the findings on the improvement and on the claim, which shall be docketed by the clerk and shall proceed the same as an appeal on a claim for compensation or damages in a single county improvement proceeding.
