That for the purpose of maintaining, adorning, constructing, repairing and otherwise improving the parks, parkways, boulevards, roads and grounds located in the EAST PARK DISTRICT in Kansas City, Missouri under the control and management of the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners, a maintenance tax 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, is hereby levied according to the valuation and assessment of real estate in the EAST PARK DISTRICT for the Fiscal Year 1999-2000, pursuant to Section 60 of Article III of the Charter of Kansas City.

 

Section 3. The maintenance tax hereby levied shall be entered and extended by the Commissioner of Accounts against each tract or parcel of land in the EAST PARK DISTRICT liable for the tax, and shall be a lien thereon from the effective date of this ordinance and shall 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
