That for the purpose of maintaining, adorning, constructing, repairing and otherwise improving the parks, parkways, roads and boulevards located in the EAST PARK DISTRICT in Kansas City, Missouri, said Board does hereby recommend to the Council of Kansas City, that there be levied for the Fiscal Year 1995-1996, a special assessment of fifty cents ($.50) on each hundred dollars of the assessed value upon real estate not exempted by law from taxation herein imposed, exclusive of buildings and improvements thereon, in the EAST PARK DISTRICT, in Kansas City, Missouri, and that said special assessment be levied according to the valuation and assessment of real estate in said EAST PARK DISTRICT made for City purposes for said year.

 

Section 2. The special assessment hereby levied and made shall be used for the purpose of maintaining, adorning, constructing, repairing and otherwise improving the parks, parkways, roads and boulevards, or portions thereof, located in the EAST PARK DISTRICT which are under the control and management of the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners, as provided by Section 60 of Article III of the Charter of said City.

 

Section 3. The maintenance, construction, repair and improvement of the parks, parkways, roads and boulevards located in the District confers a special benefit upon the lands located within the District.

 

Section 4. The special assessment hereby levied shall be entered and extended by the Commissioner of Accounts against each tract or parcel of land in said EAST PARK DISTRICT liable to such assessment, and shall be a lien thereon from the date of the taking effect 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 the Charter and ordinances for entering, extending and collecting of general City taxes on said real property. Said special assessment 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 the Charter and ordinances in the case of delinquent general City taxes.

 

The laws and ordinances governing the entering, extending, payment, collection and the sale for nonpayment of general taxes of the City, shall, as far as practicable, govern the entering, extending, collection and the sale for nonpayment of the special assessment hereby levied, 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 interest and penalties accrued thereon may be collected by suit in the manner prescribed by Section 383, Article XII, of the City Charter, except in the case of such suit, the amount of said assessment and the description thereof shall be evidenced by certificate of the City Treasurer, instead of by special tax bill.

 

The taxes herein levied above are levied subject to adjustment upon receipt of equalized assessments and the extension, billing and collection thereof shall be effected in the same manner as that of the General Taxes of the City, anything to the contrary herein notwithstanding.

 

Section 5. It shall be the duty of the City Treasurer to keep a separate account of all the assessments levied and collected in pursuance of this ordinance, and said moneys, when collected, shall be deposited in the banks or banking institutions of said City having a contract with the City for deposit and safekeeping of the funds of said City, in pursuance of the Charter and ordinances of Kansas City; and all interest, if any, received from such depository or depositories on account of the depositing of any fund therein arising from this assessment, shall be credited to and become a part of the fund received from this assessment, and shall be used for the same purposes for which this assessment is made.
