Notes / Description: 

Johnson City sued the defendant for costs of building under provisions of the private acts set forth by the General Assembly. The act states that any improvement to private land by the city is chargeable to the land owner. The defendant does not believe that the road was of any benefit to them and therefore they are not liable to pay any of the said costs.
