     7-12-2163. Collection of district assessments by county treasurer -- delinquencies. (1) Where any resolution of assessment, either for construction or maintenance, has been duly certified by the county clerk, it shall be the duty of the county treasurer, in accordance with the provisions of this title, to collect such assessment in the same manner and at the same time as taxes for general and municipal purposes are collected by him.
     (2) When the payment of an installment of a special assessment becomes delinquent, all payments of subsequent installments of the special assessment may, at the option of the board of county commissioners and upon adoption of the appropriate resolutions, become delinquent. Upon delinquency in one or all installments, the whole property must be sold the same as other property is sold for taxes. The enforcement of the lien of any installment of a special assessment by any method authorized by law does not prevent the enforcement of the lien of any subsequent installment when it becomes delinquent.
