When the board has determined to issue bonds secured by benefit assessments, it shall, by resolution, employ a civil engineer, who shall have no interest, directly or indirectly, in any land in the district, to apportion the cost of the plan, to which shall be added the compensation to be paid the engineer, in accordance with benefit to each tract of land within the service area held in separate ownership.

If any area composed of more than one tract held in separate ownership is not assessed because the lands therein will not be benefited by the expenditure of the funds to be raised by the assessment, a description of the area as a whole without a description of each tract is sufficient.

(c) The number of acres in each tract.

(d) The name and address of the owner of each tract, if known, and if unknown, that fact. No mistake or error in the name of the owner of the property assessed and no mistake in any other particular shall render the assessment invalid.

The publications shall be complete not less than 10 days prior to the date of sale. The notice shall state that sealed proposals will be received for the purchase of the bonds until the day and hour named in the resolution.

The amount of the assessment to be borne by each zone shall be computed by multiplying the total amount to be raised by assessment by the percentage of benefits accruing to each zone as declared by the board.

In the resolution to be adopted pursuant to this section, the board shall provide for a public hearing upon the assessment to be levied and shall specify a time and place when all interested persons may appear and be heard.
