Highway (HAY)

The damages assessed by the jury shall be paid by the party for whose benefit the road is laid out, before the road is opened or used; but if the jury shall certify that the necessity of such private road was occasioned by the alteration or discontinuance of a public highway, such damages shall be paid by the town and refunded to the applicant.
