§4-7-4. Commission granted power of eminent domain.

Whenever the commission finds it necessary to acquire land,

rights-of-way or easements in order to carry out the purposes of

this article, and the commission is unable to purchase the same

from the owners at an agreed price, or is unable to obtain a good

and sufficient title therefor by purchase from the owners, then the

commission may exercise the right of eminent domain and acquire any

such lands, rights-of-way or easements necessary for the aforesaid

purpose by condemnation in the manner prescribed in chapter

fifty-four of this code.
