Whenever a permit has been granted as provided in section 461A.70 and the commission finds that the municipality or corporation owning such permit cannot acquire at a reasonable cost any necessary land or interest therein, the commission, with the approval of the executive council, may condemn such land or interest therein as provided in chapter 6B. However, such condemnation shall be limited to land and interests therein which will be permanently subject to and available for free public access and use, as provided in section 461A.71, or which will be required for a dam or other facilities necessary for the water recreational area. All costs of such condemnation, including all costs occasioned by appeal as set out in section 6B.33, and including the award and compensation for such land or interest therein, shall be paid by such municipality or corporation. The commission may permit such municipality or corporation to use such land or interest therein for the purposes of this subchapter, upon such terms, conditions and restrictions as the commission shall determine to be just and proper and for free public access and use. Title to such land or interest therein shall remain in the state of Iowa.
