[CC 1955 Ch. 14 §1]
No addition to the City of Kahoka, and no subdivision of land within the City which shall be made, shall be regarded as a plat of said City until the following conditions have been severally complied with, to wit:
Two (2) full and complete plats or maps of such addition shall be made out, at the expense of the party or parties making the addition or subdivision, particularly setting forth and describing all parcels of ground within such addition or subdivision reserved for public purposes by their boundaries, whether intended for alleys, streets or other public uses, and also lots for sale by numbers and their precise length and width.
Said plats shall show that all streets and alleys of the City, which, if prolonged in straight lines, would occupy any portion of the land in such addition or subdivision, have been laid out the full width and entirely through the length and breadth of said addition or subdivision and all streets or alleys of such additions or subdivisions, as near as may be, shall run parallel with or be continuous on a straight line of the streets of this City.
The plat shall further show that all of said streets and alleys have been dedicated to the public use forever and shall be acknowledged by the proprietor before some officer authorized by law to take the acknowledgment of conveyance of real estate.
Before such plat shall be submitted to the Board of Aldermen, all taxes against the property proposed to be platted shall be paid.
Every plat hereunder shall be drawn to scale, the scale to be noted on the plat, and show the block or section or part thereof it purports to represent.
After every plat shall be prepared as above and after approval thereof by ordinance as hereinafter provided and such approval thereof endorsed upon such plats under the hand of the Clerk and Seal of the City, one (1) of them shall, at the expense of the proprietors, be duly recorded in the office or the Recorder of Deeds of Clark County, Missouri, the other to be filed in the office of the City Clerk.
[CC 1955 Ch. 14 §2]
Before such addition or subdivision shall be accepted, the Board of Aldermen shall by ordinance establish the same and declare it to be a part of the City. The publication of such ordinance to be paid for by the party making such addition or subdivision; and refusal, neglect or failure to do so shall invalidate such ordinance.
[CC 1955 Ch. 14 §3]
Nothing in this Chapter shall be construed to bind the City of Kahoka to recognize any addition or subdivision heretofore made by any person or persons not in conformity with the above and foregoing specifications or to grade, macadamize or repair any street or sidewalk therein.
