If a contract with the state, the department, any other district, or the United States requires the payment by the district of periodic service charges, the amount shall be levied from time to time as an assessment on land in the district, to the extent that funds are not otherwise available for the payment of such charges. Upon request of the board, assessment commissioners shall be appointed under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 46150) of Part 9 of this division who shall determine the portion of the total benefits to accrue to the district under the contract which will be realized by each parcel of land in separate ownership in the district. The determination shall be stated in apportionment rolls substantially in form and manner as provided in Chapter 2 of Part 9 of this division, except that the apportionment of benefits shall be stated in percentages of benefits to the district as a whole, or in such other manner as may be determined upon by the commissioners. Thereafter all assessments levied in order to meet the payments due or to become due under the contract shall be apportioned among the respective tracts of land in accordance with the rolls. Any such assessment shall be collected in the same manner as an original assessment.

(Amended by Stats. 1968, Ch. 688.)

If a contract with the state, the department, any other district, or the United States requires the payment by the district of capital charges in periodic installments, the total amount of such charges may be levied in the same manner as an original assessment pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 46150) of Part 9 of this division, or the respective amounts of such installments may be levied from time to time in the same manner as periodic service charges, as provided in Section 44030, but an assessment or assessments shall in any event be levied in such a manner as to provide for the payment of all such charges, for which funds are not otherwise available, as they become due under the contract.

(Amended by Stats. 1968, Ch. 688.)

44032.
  

If a contract with the state, the department, any other district, or the United States requires the establishment of a reserve fund for the payment by the district under the contract of periodic service charges or capital charges, or both, or if the board finds it to be necessary or desirable in the interest of the district, the board may determine to levy an assessment to provide such a reserve fund. In that event the board shall also determine the amount of the initial deposit or deposits to be made in the reserve fund and the amount of the balance, if any, to be maintained therein. The total amount of the initial deposit or deposits to be made in the reserve fund may be levied at one time, or in a series of installments from time to time, in the same manner as periodic service charges, as provided in Section 44030. Any later deposits necessary in order to maintain a required balance in the reserve fund shall be levied in the same manner. The reserve fund shall be used solely for the payment of the charges for which it is established, until all the charges have been paid. Any balance then remaining in the reserve fund shall be transferred to the general fund of the district.

(Amended by Stats. 1992, Ch. 1020, Sec. 83. Effective January 1, 1993.)
