Section 6: Condemnation in City’s NameAnchor: #i1000993
Agreements with cities make special provisions for a city to initiate condemnation proceedings in its own name. In these cases, the property so acquired will be conveyed from the city to the State by an instrument acceptable to TxDOT. If no excess taking is involved, the consideration shown in the instrument of conveyance will read:
“_____% reimbursement of grantor’s cost of $__________ as set forth in the final judgment in Cause No. XXXXX .”
If the taking is in excess of TxDOT needs, see Chapter 3, Section 5 of this Guide for the procedure to be followed.
