IT IS FURTHER RESOLVED that within thirty (30) days after their appointment, the said Commissioners shall begin to inspect all the lands classification within said district in tracts of 40 acres or less according to the legal or recognized subdivisions and reclassification, if necessary, those lands owned and possessed by Design Homes, Inc., in a graduated scale of benefits to be numbered according to the benefits received by each of such tracts from such improvement, and pursue said work continuously until completed and, when completed, shall make a full, accurate and detailed report thereof and file the same with the Woodbury County Auditor, all in accord with Section 455.46, et seq.
