The commissioners shall specify in their report each tract of land by reasonable description
and the ownership of the tract as it appears on the tax books of the county or as
it has been previously adjudged in the proceeding. Any objection to such assessment and apportionment shall be filed in writing with
the county clerk on or before twelve o'clock (12:00) noon of the day the matter of
the assessment and apportionment is set for hearing by the court. The assessment may be made without notice, as taxes are assessed without notice
in such cases; but publication shall be made in three (3) weekly newspapers published
in the county where the proceeding is pending, if there are that number published
in the county, otherwise in at least one (1) weekly newspaper, for two (2) consecutive
weeks, notifying all parties, concerned in any way, of the date set for hearing the
matter of assessment and apportionment by the court, when they may appear and be heard,
if they desire. The last of the publications shall be at least five (5) days before the day set
for the hearing, and the publication shall be in lieu and stead of notice personally
served, but shall not give the names of the parties, but only a brief statement of
the date and purpose of such hearing.
