  • § 976. Judgment against town; execution

    The clerk shall file the report and enter judgment in favor of the commissioners against the town for the amount named in the report, with costs. However, the aggrieved party may appeal to the Superior Court by filing with the county clerk, within 21 days after the judgment has been entered by the clerk, a notice of appeal and a certified copy of the complaint filed with the commissioners and by serving upon the appellee, within the 21 days, a copy of the notice of appeal, who shall within 21 days thereafter enter his or her appearance. The Superior Court shall hear the appeal on questions of fact and law and render final judgment. In case an appeal is not taken within 21 days after judgment, the clerk shall issue execution returnable in 30 days from the date of the judgment. In the execution, the collecting officer shall be directed to pay the amount of the judgment to the agent appointed by the commissioners and the costs to the county clerk. (Added 1985, No. 269 (Adj.
