§ 33.1-257. How right to demand tolls ascertained and rates fixed or changed
No tolls shall be received for passing any such bridge until it shall appear to the circuit court of the county wherein the same is that it is completed according to the act authorizing it. The court shall ascertain whether it is or is not so completed by appointing three disinterested freeholders to view it. If they report in writing that it is so completed and their report be confirmed by the court, the person authorized to erect it, his heirs or assigns, may thenceforth demand and receive, on persons and things passing the same, tolls at the rates fixed by such act or, if none be so fixed, then at such rates as may, from time to time, be fixed by law. Though rates of toll be specified in such act, they may, from time to time, be changed by law, unless in such act otherwise expressly provided.
