6B.57  Procedural compliance.

If a city makes a good faith effort to serve, send, or provide the notices or documents required under this chapter to the owner of private property that is or may be the subject of condemnation, but fails to provide the notice or documents to the owner, such failure shall not constitute grounds for invalidation of the condemnation proceeding if the chief judge of the judicial district determines that such failure can be corrected by delaying the condemnation proceedings to allow compliance with the requirement and such failure does not unreasonably prejudice the owner.
