  88.027.  Condemnation of property — assessment of damages, duties of commissioners. — 1.  The commissioners so appointed shall give notice to all parties interested of the time and place when and where they will hear all parties interested who may appear before them, which notice need not be directed to any particular defendant or party interested, but may be general in its form, giving the number, title and date of approval of the ordinance initiating the proceedings and a description of the benefitted district by boundaries as defined in the ordinance.  Such notice shall be published in some newspaper in said city, selected by the commissioners, once each week for two consecutive weeks, the last insertion to be at least one day before the day set for such hearing.

  2.  It shall be the duty of the commissioners to first determine the value of the property to be appropriated, and all damages caused by said appropriation; then they shall apportion the total sum to be paid for the property condemned and damages so determined among the various lots, tracts and parcels of land within the benefitted district, and the city, according to the actual benefits which they find will accrue to the various lots, tracts and parcels of land within said benefitted district and to the city at large.  They shall not be required to assess any sum against any lot, tract or parcel of land within the benefitted district which they may find will not be benefitted, nor shall they be required to assess any sum against the city unless they find that the city at large will be benefitted.  Any action taken by a majority of the commissioners shall be deemed the act of all.
