§20. Compensation to owners for use of land

If satisfactory compensation is not made to the owner by the officers or agents of
the United States under whose direction such lands are taken, he may make complaint
to the county commissioners who, after not less than 14 days' notice to the parties
of the time and place of hearing, shall view the premises, hear the parties and assess
the damages sustained by the taking of the land for said purposes, including the time
during which it will be required for such use, as if the land were taken for highway
purposes under Title 23, chapter 3, order them to be paid at such time as they direct
and award costs to the prevailing party. [1975, c. 431, §1 (AMD).]
