Original assessments-Jury's verdict.
The court shall cause to be prepared and shall submit to the jury a form
of verdict, which shall, in all instances, contain the names of the owners,
and the description of the land or other property affected, as set forth in
the assessment roll. When the amount of the benefits (including annual
benefits, if any) assessed and the amount of compensation and damages
allowed, if any, are uncontested as to a particular tract of land or other
property, then the form of verdict may also contain the amount of benefits
(including annual benefits, if any) assessed against and the amount of the
compensation and damages, if any, allowed to, such tract or other property.
When the jury shall have completed their deliberations, their verdict shall
be properly completed and signed by them and filed in the court and, when
so filed, shall be taken and held to be the verdict of the jury upon all
questions of benefits, compensation and damages arising or which might have
arisen in the proceedings.
