$ 299-a. Establishment of water district and construction of water supply system therein. After the establishment of a water district and the construction of a water supply system therein in any town adjoining an incorporated city of the first class, or in any town within a county having a population of more than three hundred and fifty thousand, according to the last federal or state census, or enumeration, adjoining a city of the first class having a population of one million and upwards, upon the petition of a majority of the owners of taxable real property within a proposed extension of said district, as appears by the last preceding completed assessment roll, the water commissioners of said district may with the consent of the town board enlarge said district to take in the terri. tory comprising such outside real estate and extend the water supply system therein. The petition must describe the proposed extension of said district and state the maximum amount proposed to be expended in the construction of the enlargement of the water supply system in such added territory and must be signed by the petitioners and acknowledged in the same manner as a deed to be recorded. The petition shall also be accompanied by a map and plan prepared by a competent engineer, showing the proposed enlargement of the water district and water supply system, which map shall be filed as prescribed in section two hundred and eightythree for the filing of the map of the original district. A notice of such petition shall be given and a hearing and determination had by and before the water commissioners in the manner, as nearly as may be as is provided in section two hundred and eightyfive. The determination, if favorable to the petitioners, shall be approved by the town board at any regular or special meeting to the effect that the water district and the water supply system therein shall be enlarged in accordance with the petition.”

2 Section to here materially amended.

3 Words “Every petition made, as provided in this section, shall contain a statement conspicuously printed or written thereon as follows:

” omitted

All the provisions in this article in relation to contracts for the construction of the original water system in such water districts and the issue and sale of bonds therefor and the payment of such bonds shall apply to the enlargement of such water district and water supply system as authorized in this section.* When the town board has approved the determination of said water commissioners, the said water commissioners shall thereupon and from time to time thereafter, as often as is necessary, make such reasonable rules and regulations for the supplying of water to such new territory and the collection of the reasonable cost thereof as may be necessary.

Such water district may be enlarged as provided herein as often as may be desired. The reasonable expenses of the necessary proceedings on the enlargement of such water district, as herein prescribed, are a charge against such added territory to be levied and collected in the same manner as the cost of the construction of the enlargement of the water supply system. If the petition is not granted the persons who signed the same are jointly and severally liable for such expenses. At any time after the town board has made an order enlarging such water district or the water supply system as herein provided, the maximum amount proposed to be expended in the construction of the enlargement of such water supply system may be increased by a petition of a majority of the owners of taxable real property therein, as appears by the last preceding completed assessment roll setting forth the additional amount proposed to be expended in excess of the maximum amount set forth in the original petition.
