(b)  The total estimate shall be divided by the district board in proportion to the value of the real property of the district in each county.

When the division of the estimate has been made, the district board shall promptly certify to the boards of supervisors of the counties in which the district is situated the respective parts of the estimate apportioned to each county.

(c)  The board of supervisors of each county in which is situated any part of a district shall annually, at the time of levying county taxes, levy a tax upon all the property within the district situated in the county sufficient to raise the amount so certified to the board of supervisors by the district board.

(d)  The tax shall be collected by the same officers and in the same manner as other county taxes, and the money so collected shall be transmitted to the district treasurer.
