§ 3604. Petition for hearing to determine necessity
The municipal corporation may agree with all the owners of land or interest in land affected by the survey made under section 3602 of this title for the conveyance of their interest. Where such agreement is not made, the board shall petition a Superior judge, setting forth therein that such board proposes to take certain land, or rights therein, and describing such lands or rights, and the survey shall be annexed to said petition and made a part thereof. Such petition shall set forth the purposes for which such land or rights are desired, and shall contain a request that such judge fix a time and place when he or she or some other Superior judge will hear all parties concerned and determine whether such taking is necessary. (1963, No. 214, § 2.)
