Section 940.20 | Notice of hearing on proposed improvement.
As soon as the supervisors of a soil and water conservation district have established the dates, times, and locations of the view and the hearing concerning a proposed improvement, they shall send, at least twenty days prior to the date established for the view, a written notice of the view and the hearing to the landowners within the area to be benefited by the proposed improvement and to the board of county commissioners and the county engineer. The supervisors shall notify all landowners that are adjacent to the proposed improvement either by certified mail or, if the supervisors have record of an internet identifier of record associated with such a landowner, by ordinary mail and by that internet identifier of record, and shall notify all others by certified mail or first class mailings. Any such written notice shall have the words "Legal Notice" printed in plain view on the face of the envelope or, in the case of service by an internet identifier of record, in conspicuous typeface at the top of the notice. In addition, the supervisors shall invite to the view and the hearing the staff of the soil and water conservation district and the staff of the natural resources conservation service in the United States department of agriculture that is involved with the district together with any other people that the supervisors consider to be necessary to the proceedings.
As used in this section, "internet identifier of record" has the same meaning as in section 9.312 of the Revised Code.
