Relating to the service of notice of a special commissioners' hearing in an eminent domain proceeding.

HB 2831 would update the property code relating to the process of serving notice in an eminent domain case. This bill would simplify and expand the notice requirement by requiring that the notice be delivered in person or in another manner provided by the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure for service of citation.
