Section 6131.11 | Dismissal of petition - appeal.


(A) If the board of county commissioners finds at the conclusion of the first hearing for a proposed improvement that a proposed improvement is not necessary, will not be conducive to the public welfare, or that the estimated cost of the proposed improvement will exceed the benefits to be derived if it is constructed, the board shall dismiss the petition for the proposed improvement and enter its findings upon its journal.

(B) Any owner who is affected by the order of dismissal may appeal to the court of common pleas of the county in which the petition was filed, as provided in sections 6131.12 to 6131.64 of the Revised Code. If no appeal is filed within thirty days pursuant to section 6131.25 of the Revised Code, the bond shall cover all the costs incurred in the proceedings. Any remaining funds from the bond shall be returned to the petitioner.

(C) An order issued by the board under this section is effective on the day of the hearing at which the board issued it.
