15-1118.Same; conditions. The drilling of a well as authorized in this act shall be upon the further conditions that some person shall be willing to enter into an agreement with the city whereby such person will drill and equip the well at such person's own expense, in the first instance, and without cost to the city, and with the understanding that such person shall be repaid from the natural gas produced from said well or the proceeds thereof, and that after being fully reimbursed the city shall then become the sole and exclusive owner of the well.

The governing body of the city shall credit to the funds of the city, the proceeds and income accruing to the city by reason of the city's ownership of the gas well, and in order to secure to the common owners of the land situated within the corporate limits of the city a proportionate acquisition of, and benefit from, the natural gas underlying said land, all such proceeds shall be subject to governmental uses and purposes of the city as the governing body shall order from time to time and to reduce and eliminate, insofar as possible, all property taxes of the city. Any well drilled under authority of this act shall be drilled within the corporate limits of the city.
