727.42 Apportioning costs among municipal corporations for park boulevard.

Whenever a park boulevard extends from a municipal corporation to which it belongs into or adjacent to one or more other municipal corporations, and it is desired by the several municipal corporations so situated to improve the boulevard by grading, draining, curbing, paving, repaving, surfacing, resurfacing, or otherwise improving such boulevard, such municipal corporations may apportion the cost of the improvement among themselves in such manner as the legislative authorities thereof agree. The amount agreed to be borne by each municipal corporation may be defrayed out of its general fund, or by the issue of bonds.

Where such boulevard adjoins private property, abutting thereon and benefited thereby, such property may be assessed a portion of the cost of the improvement by the municipal corporation in which the property is situated, in the same manner, to the same extent, and subject to the same limitations as are provided by Chapter 727. of the Revised Code for the levying and collection of special assessments.

The amount agreed to be paid by the municipal corporations in which or adjacent to which such park boulevard is situated shall be paid to the treasurer of the municipal corporation owning such park boulevard. The contract for such improvement shall be let by and the work done under the supervision of the municipal corporation owning said park boulevard in the same manner provided for the letting and execution of contracts for the improvement of streets in such municipal corporation.

In the event that a part of the cost of such improvement is to be specially assessed upon the abutting property, the municipal corporation in which such property is situated may issue bonds in anticipation of the collection of such assessments, in the same manner in which bonds are authorized to be issued and sold in anticipation of the collection of special assessments for the improvement of streets and highways.
