Can the board’s decision be appealed?

If the Board of Determination determines a drain project is necessary, any aggrieved person has 10 days to appeal but they may only appeal the finding of necessity, since that is the only issue the Board of Determination is acting upon. After the 10th day appeal period is over, the Drain Commissioner may proceed with the project.
