(from Ch. 42, par. 3-29)
Commissioners, both temporary and permanent, shall be appointed for
outlet drainage districts at the time and in the manner and with like
qualifications provided in this Act for the appointment of commissioners of
other drainage districts. Such commissioners shall have the same powers and
duties as commissioners of other districts except the following:
(a) The commissioners of an outlet drainage district shall not have the
power to construct any drainage work except the deepening, widening,
straightening, relocating or otherwise improving of the channel of such
outlet river, stream or other natural or artificial watercourse, and to
reconstruct, enlarge, repair and maintain the same. No assessment shall be
levied except for these purposes and incidental expenses in connection
therewith and to pay damages, if any, and compensation for land taken, and
the cost of organization.
(b) Subdistricts may not be formed in any outlet drainage district.
(c) No outlet drainage district shall remove, destroy, appropriate or
use any levee, drain, ditch or part thereof or other work of any other
drainage district or municipal corporation exercising drainage powers
without the consent of such district or municipal corporation or without
paying just compensation therefor.
