7-12-4183. Collection of district assessments by city treasurer in cities where county collects taxes. (1) In any city or town where taxes for general, municipal, and administrative purposes are certified to and collected by the county treasurer in accordance with the provisions of 7-6-4423, the city or town may provide by ordinance for the collection by its city treasurer or town clerk of all special assessments and taxes levied and assessed in accordance with any of the provisions of part 42 and this part in the same manner and at the same time as taxes for general, municipal, and administrative purposes are collected by the county treasurer. All of the provisions of 7-6-4423 apply to the collection of the special taxes and assessments in the same manner as the provisions apply to the collection of other city or town taxes.
(2) (a) When the payment of any one installment of any special assessment becomes delinquent, all payments of subsequent installments must, at the option of the city or town council and by appropriate resolution duly adopted, become delinquent. The city or town council may order that all assessments that are delinquent as a result of acceleration be withdrawn.
(b) Delinquent special assessments must be certified to the county clerk of the county in which the city or town is situated. The county treasurer shall collect the delinquent special assessments and taxes in the same manner and at the same time that taxes for general, municipal, and administrative purposes are collected. In case the delinquent assessments and taxes are not paid, the whole property must be sold in the same manner that 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.
