HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES
40-809. Appeal from order of highway district board in special tax districts. Within thirty (30) days after the filing provided for in section 40-808, Idaho Code, but not after the expiration of the thirty (30) days, any owner of land within a special taxing district may file in the office of the highway district board a copy of a verified petition in a proceeding in the district court of the highway district for the review of the order, specifying the grounds of objection. At the expiration of the thirty (30) days, all proceedings relating to the special tax district where copies of petitions for review have been duly filed shall be consolidated by order of the district court into a single proceeding, and notice shall be given and procedure followed as the district court shall prescribe. The district court shall have jurisdiction as a court of equity, and without a jury, try and determine the proceeding. On the review, the only question to be tried and determined shall be whether, in creating a special tax district and in fixing the amounts so charged against the land, the district board has observed the requirements specified in sections 40-810 and 40-811, Idaho Code. The district court shall, if it determines that the board has materially departed from the requirements, make a final order in the proceeding directing any necessary change or modification in the order of the highway district board, and that board shall make the changes and modifications in their order, and the changed or modified order shall be submitted to the district court and finally made as directed and approved by the court. If in the proceeding the district court shall determine that the highway board has not materially departed from the requirements, it shall affirm the order of the highway district board. On the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date of the highway district board’s original order, without any copy of a petition for review having been filed, or on the filing with the secretary of the highway board, of the order of the district court in the proceeding for review affirming the order, or on the filing with the secretary of the new order of the board embodying the changes and modifications directed by the district court in the proceeding for review, with the written approval of the court attached, as the case may be, the order shall be final and conclusive in respect to all the matters and things contained.
