This Regulation provides for the assessment of land in a drainage district. The board of trustees of each district is responsible for conducting the assessment. Section 5 specifies that the valuation standard of the land is the agricultural use value of the land, regardless of whether the land is being used for farming operations. Section 6 regulates procedures for the addition and removal of land from a district. (11 sections)Each drainage district is governed by a Board of Trustees; the Act contains provisions on the composition and operation of the boards (sect. 14-29). For the purpose of carrying out their functions under the Act, the boards have the rights, powers and privileges of a natural person (sect. 17). Boards may construct, replace, extend, alter, modify, dismantle, abandon, operate and maintain drainage works (sect. 30). Boards have the power to determine and collect assessments and drainage rates for all the land in a drainage district (sect. 37-62). Appeals against the decisions of boards are regulated under part 5 (sect. 63-66).
