CHAPTER 12. Acquisition of Property and Rights of Way [25280 - 25281]
  ( Chapter 12 added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 284. )


The board of directors of the district may request the board of supervisors and the proper officers of any county situated within the district to condemn and acquire property or rights-of-way within that county which are necessary for the projects of the district. Upon receipt of the request, the board of supervisors shall undertake the condemnation and acquisition requested by the board of directors and the cost thereof shall be a proper deduction from any levy made by the district upon or within that county. Any excess in such cost over and above the amount of any such levy shall be paid to the county by the district out of any funds provided for that purpose. The proceedings required to be taken by any county or county officers under the provisions of this section may include the taking of possession prior to judgment of any property or rights-of-way necessary for district purposes.

(Amended by Stats. 1975, Ch. 582.)


If it is decided that any money authorized to be expended from the State Treasury shall be expended as required by Section 7 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, the Director of Transportation shall have the exclusive management and control of the expenditure, if the boards of supervisors of the several counties concerned assent to the relinquishment and transfer of such management and control. However, the Director of Transportation may delegate his powers to the board of directors of the district. The board of directors of the district may vest, in the Director of Transportation, authority to supervise all or part of the work of improvement.
