     7-12-4186. Procedure to correct assessment and relevy and collect tax. (1) Whenever, by reason of any alleged nonconformity to any law or ordinance or by reason of any omission or irregularity, any special tax or assessment is either invalid or its validity is questioned, the council may make all necessary orders and ordinances and may take all necessary steps to correct the same and to reassess and relevy the same, including the ordering of work, with the same force and effect as if made at the time provided by law, ordinance, or resolution relating thereto. The council may reassess and relevy the same with the same force and effect as an original levy.
     (2) Whenever any apportionment or assessment is made and any property is assessed too little or too much, the same may be corrected and reassessed for such additional amount as may be proper or the assessment may be reduced even to the extent of refunding the tax collected.
     (3) Any special tax upon reassessment or relevy shall, so far as is practicable, be levied and collected as the same would have been if the first levy had been enforced. Any provisions of any law or ordinance specifying a time when or order in which acts shall be done in a proceeding which may result in a special tax shall be taken to be subject to the qualifications of this part or part 42.
