§1-3-14. Notice and survey in case of changing county line.

When it is proposed to change a county line, a notice thereof

shall be published prior to the application for a survey of the

proposed change as a Class II legal advertisement in compliance

with the provisions of article three, chapter fifty-nine of this

code, and the publication area for such publication shall be the

county from which any territory is proposed to be taken. At any

time after such notice has been published, the county court of the

county, a part of whose territory is proposed to be attached to

another county, shall, on application of any person interested, and

at his expense, cause a survey of the proposed change of line to be

made by the surveyor of the county, or by some competent surveyor

appointed for the purpose. The surveyor so appointed, or directed,

to make such survey shall, as soon as his fees therefor are paid or

secured to be paid to his satisfaction, proceed to make such survey

and return a plat and report thereof to said court, and the clerk

thereof shall file and preserve the same in his office; and shall,

as provided in section three of this article, make out and deliver

to any person who may demand the same, a certified copy thereof.

Every application to the Legislature for the change of a county

line shall be accompanied by a duly certified copy of such plat and

report. If the county court of such county refuse to order such

survey to be made, or if the surveyor appointed by such court to

make such survey fail or refuse to do so, then and in that event

the county court of the county to which such territory is proposed to be added shall, on the application of any person interested, and

at his expense, order the survey to be made and appoint a surveyor

to make the same; and the surveyor so appointed shall, as soon as

his fees therefor are paid or secured to be paid to his

satisfaction, make and report such survey to the county court of

his county as hereinbefore required.
