§ 4-32. Financial Reports of Commissioners. On or before the last day of November in each year, and more often if the court
so requires, the commissioners shall make a report, under oath, to the court, showing
the amount of money collected by the district since the last preceding report and
the manner in which the funds of the district have been expended during that period. Such report shall also contain an itemized statement of the notes, bonds and orders,
if any, outstanding and unpaid at the close of the report period and the balance on
hand in the treasury of the district. Upon the filing of the report with the clerk of the court, the same shall be presented
to the court, and the clerk of the court shall give notice of the date on or before
which objections must be filed by publishing a notice thereof in a newspaper of general
circulation in the county in which the district was organized. Any owner of land within the district may file an objection to the report with the
clerk of the court within 10 days after the publication of the notice. If any objections are filed within the time prescribed, the court shall set a hearing
at a time not later than 4 weeks after the date of the filing of the report. If no objection to the report is filed, the court may approve the report without
a hearing. At a hearing on the report the court shall hear evidence on any and all objections
which may be urged against the report and evidence in support thereof and may continue
the hearing to a day certain or from time to time. At the conclusion of a hearing, the court may approve the report, disapprove the
report or order the report modified or amended. Upon the approval of a report, the same shall be recorded in the drainage record. Copies of the financial report shall be available at the annual meeting of the district.
