Section 59-A Notice to owners

State (STL)

The adjutant general shall, upon the filing of the certified copy of such survey, map and certificates in the office of such county clerk, serve upon the owners of the lands, and the structures and waters thereon, included in such survey, and upon all persons, corporations or municipalities having any estate or interest therein, a notice of the filing of such survey, map and certificates as above provided, which notice shall specifically describe that portion of the property belonging to the owner which has been so appropriated for the purposes hereinbefore prescribed. If the adjutant general is not able to serve such notice upon the owner of such property or the person or corporation having an estate or interest therein, after making reasonable effort to do so, or if he is unable to ascertain the persons, corporations or municipalities owning such lands and the structures and waters thereon, or is unable to discover the character of the estate or interest in and to such lands, of any person, corporation or municipality, he shall cause such notice to be published at least once in a newspaper published in the county where such land or any portion thereof is situated, and in such other newspapers as he may deem advisable.
