        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 117.085, is 
        amended to read: 
           117.085 [COMMISSIONERS, POWERS, DUTIES.] 
           The commissioners, having been duly sworn and qualified 
        according to law, shall meet as directed by the order of 
        appointment and hear the allegations and proofs of all persons 
        interested touching the matters to them committed.  They may 
        adjourn from time to time and from place to place within the 
        county, giving oral notice to those present of the time and 
        place of their next meeting.  All testimony taken by them shall 
        be given publicly, under oath, and in their presence.  They 
        shall view the premises, and any of them may subpoena witnesses, 
        which shall be served as subpoenas in civil actions are served, 
        and at the cost of the parties applying therefor.  If deemed 
        necessary, they may require the petitioner or owner to furnish 
        for their use maps, plats, and other information which the 
        petitioner or owner may have showing the nature, character, and 
        extent of the proposed undertaking and the situation of lands 
        desired therefor.  In proper cases they may reserve to the owner 
        a right of way or other privilege in or over the land taken, or 
        attach reasonable conditions to such taking in addition to the 
        damages given or they may make an alternative award, conditioned 
        upon the granting or withholding of the right specified.  
        Without unreasonable delay they shall make a separate assessment 
        and award of the damages which in their judgment will result to 
        each of the owners of the land by reason of such taking and 
        report the same to the court.  The commissioners shall not 
        reduce the amount of the damages awarded because the land being 
        taken is, at the time of the taking, valued under section 
        273.111, designated as an agricultural preserve under chapter 
        473H.  The commissioners, in all such proceedings, may in their 
        discretion allow and show separately in addition to the award of 
        damages, reasonable appraisal fees not to exceed a total of 
        $500.  Upon request of an owner the commissioners shall show in 
        their report the amount of the award of damages which is to 
        reimburse the owner and tenant or lessee for the value of the 
        land taken, and the amount of the award of damages, if any, 
        which is to reimburse the owner and tenant or lessee for damages 
        to the remainder involved, whether or not described in the 
        petition.  The amounts awarded to each person shall also be 
        shown separately.  The commissioners shall, if requested by any 
        party, make an express finding of the estimated cost of removal 
        and remedial actions that will be necessary on the taken 
        property because of existing environmental contamination. 
           Sec. 2.  Laws 1997, chapter 207, section 7, as amended by

        responsible for the costs of this reappraisal.  If the parcel is 
        reappraised within the time set forth herein and the county and 
        the leaseholder fail to agree on the value of the land and 
        improvements within 30 days of the date of delivery of the 
        reappraisal, each of the appraisers shall agree upon the 
        selection of a third appraiser to conduct a third appraisal that
