§ 686. Short forms and abbreviations
For the sake of convenience:
(a) In any orders of the court the words, “The court now here finds that it hath jurisdiction of the parties to and of the subject matter of this proceeding,” shall be equivalent to a finding that each jurisdiction upon the court, beginning with the proper signing and filing of the initial petition to the date of the order containing such recital, have been scrutinized by the court and found to meet every legal requirement imposed by this act.1
(b) No other or further evidence of the legal hypothecation of the special assessment to the payment of the bonds shall be required than the passage of a bonding resolution by the board of directors and the issuance of bonds in accordance therewith.
(c) In the preparation of any assessment or appraisal roll the usual abbreviations employed by engineers, surveyors and abstractors may be used.
(d) Where properly to describe any parcel of land it would be necessary to use a long description, the appraisers, after locating the land generally may refer to the book and page of the public record of any instrument in which the land is described, which reference shall suffice to identify for all the purposes of this act the land described in this public record referred to.
(e) It shall not be necessary in any notice required by this act to be published to specify the names of the owners of the lands or of the persons interested therein; but any such notice may be addressed, “To All Persons Interested,” with like effect as though such notice named by name every owner, of any lands within the territory specified in the notice and every person interested therein, and every lienor, actual or inchoate, except that the notice of assessments or appraisals shall be as provided otherwise herein.
(f) Every district heretofore created or hereinafter declared upon hearing to be a conservancy district shall be an improvement district as provided in Article 16 of the Constitution of Oklahoma, and shall be invested with all the powers and privileges conferred upon such districts by the Constitution of Oklahoma and this act.
