Arizona Revised Statutes § 48-2603 Petition For Organization; Notice; Bond

48-2603. Petition for organization; notice; bond

A. In order to propose the organization of a drainage district, a petition shall be presented to the board of supervisors of the county in which the lands within the proposed district, or the greater portion thereof, are located, signed by the required number of holders of title or evidence of title to the lands within the proposed district.

B. The petition shall set forth and particularly describe the proposed boundaries of the district and shall pray that the lands therein be organized as a drainage district under the provisions of this chapter. The petitioners shall accompany the petition with a good and sufficient bond to be approved by the board of supervisors in the amount of the probable cost necessary to be incurred by the board of supervisors in organizing the district, conditioned that the obligors will pay all costs if the organization is not effected.

C. The petition shall be presented at a regular or special meeting of the board of supervisors. If the board of supervisors determines that the organization of the drainage district is necessary and feasible, the board shall enter an order fixing a time and place for hearing the petition and directing that the petition, together with a notice of the hearing, be published for not less than six weeks in a newspaper published in the county, or if any portion of the proposed district lies within another county or counties, that the petition and notice be likewise published in a newspaper published in each of such counties. When more than one newspaper is published in any such county, the order shall require publication to be made in a newspaper which in the judgment of the board will reach the greatest number of persons residing within the boundaries of the proposed district.
