§ 4-29. Sale of district owned real estate--petition--notice--hearing--order. When the commissioners deem it advisable to sell any real estate owned by the district,
they shall petition the court for an order authorizing such sale. The petition when filed shall be presented to the court, which shall fix the date
and hour for hearing. The clerk of the court shall give notice of the hearing in the manner and for the
length of time prescribed by Section 4-22, and no notice by mailing shall be required. The notice shall be entitled “Drainage Notice,” shall be addressed “To All Persons
Interested” and must state (a) in what court and on what date the petition was filed,
(b) a description of the real estate petitioned to be sold and (c) the place, date
and hour the petition will be heard. At the hearing on the petition, any owner of land in the district may appear and
be heard without filing written objections. If, at the conclusion of the hearing, the court finds that it is advisable to sell
the real estate, or any part thereof, it shall order the commissioners to make such
sale, fix the terms of sale, direct the manner of giving notice of such sale and direct
the conveyance to be made upon compliance with the terms. The order may also contain any pertinent provisions in regard to the cancellation
of the lien of any past due and unpaid assessments, or installments of assessments,
or annual maintenance assessments of such district which may be a lien on such land
which the court may find should be cancelled.
