Section 1. That for the purpose of maintaining, repairing, and otherwise improving the boulevards, parkways, roads, streets, avenues and highways located in the East Park and West Park Districts of the City as described in Exhibit 1 of Board Resolution 29155 and in Exhibit 1 of Board Resolution 29156, respectively, there is levied for Fiscal Year 2012-13, a special assessment of one dollar ($1.00) per lineal foot on all lots, tracts, and parcels of land, abutting the boulevards, parkways, roads, streets, avenues and highways established in the East Park District and the West Park District and now under the control and management of the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners.

Section 2. Upon the effective date of this ordinance, the City Engineer and the Director of Parks and Recreation, shall prepare correct descriptions of the several lots and parcels of land abutting each boulevard, parkway, road, streets, avenues and highway in the East Park and West Park Districts as set forth in Resolutions 29155 and 29156, and the descriptions shall list the names of the owners of the lots and parcels of land as shown by the City land parcel records, and shall show the amount of lineal feet of each lot, tract and parcel of land abutting the boulevards, parkways, roads, streets, avenues and highways. For each boulevard, parkway, road, street, avenue and highway in the East and West Park Districts, the City Treasurer shall make a separate and complete list of the abutting lots and parcels of land, and deliver the list to the Director of Finance.

Section 3. The special assessment levied shall be entered and extended by the Director of Finance against each lot and parcel of land in the East Park and West Park Districts liable for such assessment, and shall be a lien on the property from the effective date of this ordinance, and be payable and collectible in the same manner and at the same time, as far as practicable, as is provided by law for entering, extending and collecting general City taxes on real property, except that no rebate shall be deducted or allowed from the assessment in any case. Each special assessment levied under this ordinance shall become delinquent at the same time, and when delinquent shall bear the same rate of interest and be subject to the same penalties as provided by law in the case of delinquent general City taxes.

Section 4. The laws and ordinances governing the entering, extending, payment, collection, and the sale for nonpayment of special assessments shall, as far as practicable, apply to the this special assessment, provided that if a sale of any land to enforce the collection of this assessment is contrary to the public policy or laws of this state, then the amount of the assessment in default with accrued interest and penalties may be collected by suit in the manner prescribed law, except in case of such suit, the amount and description of the assessment shall be evidenced by certificate of the Director of Finance instead of by special assessment tax bill.

Section 5. All sums obtained from the special assessment levied and made upon all lots, tracts and parcels of land abutting on any boulevard, parkway, road, street, avenue and highway or portion described located in the East Park District shall constitute a part of the Boulevard Maintenance fund, and that part of the fund shall be used only for the purpose of maintaining, repairing, and otherwise improving such boulevards, parkways, roads, streets, avenues and highways, or portions thereof, in the East Park District abutting those lots, tracts and parcels of land.

Section 6. All sums obtained from the special assessment levied and made upon all lots, tracts and parcels of land abutting on any boulevard, parkway, road, street, avenue and highway or portion described located in the West Park District shall also constitute a part of the Boulevard Maintenance fund, and that part of the fund shall be used only for the purpose of maintaining, repairing, and otherwise improving such boulevards, parkways, roads, streets, avenues and highways, or portions thereof, in the West Park District abutting those lots, tracts and parcels of land.
