Any municipal corporation may use or grant, for periods not exceeding twenty-five years, the use of its streets, avenues, alleys, lanes, and public places for the construction of inclined movable or rolling roads, for the conveying or moving of freight, vehicles, animals, and other property, and those in charge thereof, upon such terms as the legislative authority of such municipal corporation deems proper, but in all such grants, the municipal corporation shall reserve the right to regulate, at intervals of not less than five years, the prices which the grantee charges for such conveying or moving. No such grant shall be made until there is produced to the legislative authority the written consent of the private property owners of more than two thirds of the feet front of the lots and lands abutting on the street, avenue, alley, lane, or public place, or part thereof, upon or over which it is proposed to construct the inclined movable or rolling road.
