§ 3-7. Hearing. At the hearing, the court shall determine whether or not the requisite
number of owners owning the required acreage of land signed the petition or joined
as petitioners. The affidavit of one or more credible persons may be taken as prima facie evidence
of the sufficiency of the signing of the petition. Any owner of land situated within the proposed district may, at or prior to the
time fixed for hearing, file objections to the sufficiency of the petition on the
ground that it does not fulfill the requirements of Section 3-3, and, after filing
such objections, may be heard with reference thereto and introduce evidence thereon.
