EXCLUSION OF LANDS FROM DISTRICT
43-1107. Costs. The costs of excluding any land as provided in this chapter shall be borne by the petitioner or petitioners except in cases where:
(1) The lands excluded are found to be too high or not susceptible of irrigation from the water system of the district without pumping by the landowner and the petitioner or previous owners of the land have paid the assessments of the district against that land; or
(2) The exclusion is requested under subsection (a)3. or (a)4. of section 43-1102, Idaho Code, and for the five (5) irrigation seasons preceding the filing of the petition (a) there has been no pipe, ditch or other delivery system between the land and the assigned delivery point on the district’s irrigation system, and (b) the petitioner or previous owners of the land have paid the assessments of the district against that land. If the petitioner is required to pay the costs of exclusion hearing proceedings, the board may require a deposit of the estimated costs before they will hear the petition and the one hundred fifty (150) day period in which the petition must be heard as provided in section 43-1104, Idaho Code, shall not begin to run until the estimated costs have been deposited; provided however, that, in case of a successful appeal by the petitioner, the costs taxed by the district to the petitioner or petitioners whose lands are excluded by the district court shall be borne by the irrigation district. If the actual costs of the exclusion proceedings are less than the amount deposited by the petitioner, the excess deposit shall be credited against any amounts which are to be paid by the petitioner prior to entry of the order of exclusion, and the balance, if any, shall be refunded to the petitioner within fourteen (14) days after the hearing; if the actual costs of the exclusion proceedings are more than the deposit, the difference shall be paid to the district by the petitioner within fourteen (14) days after receipt of a statement to that effect from the district, and the board shall not be required to enter an order of exclusion until the difference is paid.
