12-643. Same; appeal to district court; bond; transcript, filing. Any person, firm or corporation who has filed objections and had a hearing as herein provided, feeling aggrieved by the decision and judgment of the governing body, may appeal to the district court of the county in which said city is situated upon giving a bond, payable to the city and any owner of property liable to be injured and conditioned that in the event that the amount of the judgment recovered is not greater than the damage allowed by said city, they will pay all damages which may accrue to the city and to the property liable to be injured by reason of the overflow of said watercourse caused by delay in making improvements by reason of the appeal. The bonds shall be approved by and filed with the city clerk within ten days after the rendition of the decision appealed from.

Within twenty days after the filing of the bond, said city clerk shall make and file a transcript of said hearing, together with all the papers relating thereto, with the clerk of the district court. Upon the filing of the transcript and bond, the district court shall have jurisdiction of the cause and the same shall be docketed and filed as in appeals in other civil actions. The district court shall hear all competent evidence as to benefits received and damages sustained for said improvements. All objections that shall be filed shall be heard and determined by the court as one proceeding and only the one transcript of the final order of the governing body of said city shall be required. The clerk of the district court, upon the rendition of said judgment, shall forthwith certify the decision of the court to the governing body of said city, who shall take such action as may be rendered necessary by such decision.
