Section 3. The special assessment levied shall be entered and extended by the Commissioner of Accounts against each lot and parcel of land of and in the WEST 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 City Charter for entering, extending and collecting general City taxes on said real property, except that no rebate shall be deducted or allowed from said assessment in any case. 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 in the case of delinquent general City taxes. The maintenance, repair and improvement of certain boulevards, parkways, roads and other highways within the park district confers a special benefit upon the real property fronting or abutting on said boulevards, parkways, roads and other highways within the park district and the amount of the special assessment is based on a portion of and does not exceed the actual cost of maintenance, repair and improvements for which the assessment is levied and used.

Section 4. All sums obtained from the special assessment hereby levied and made upon all lots, tracts and parcels of land fronting or abutting on any boulevard, parkway, road and other highway or portion thereof above-described shall constitute a part of WEST PARK DISTRICT fund, such part to be used only for the purpose of maintaining, repairing, and otherwise improving such boulevards, parkways, roads and highways, or portions thereof, in said WEST PARK DISTRICT on which said lots, tracts and parcels of land so assessed shall front or abut.
