75370.
  

The board of supervisors of each affected county shall, annually, at the time of levying county taxes, levy an assessment tax to be known as the “____ (name of district) water conservation district assessment,” sufficient to raise the amount (except the amount required to pay principal and interest of bonds) reported to it by the board, and shall also levy an assessment tax to be known as the “____ (name of district) water conservation district bond fund assessment,” sufficient to raise the amount for bond service reported to it by the board.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75371.
  

The board of supervisors of each affected county shall determine the rate of each of the assessments referred to in Section 75370 by deducting 15 percent for anticipated delinquencies from the total assessed value of the land in the district within the county, as it appears on the assessment roll of the county, and then dividing the sum reported by the board, as required to be raised in the county, by the remainder of such total assessed value. If a fraction of a cent occurs on a valuation of one hundred dollars ($100), it shall be taken as a full cent.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75372.
  

The assessment tax levied to pay bond principal and interest, when collected, shall be paid into the bond fund of the district and shall be used only for the payment of principal and interest of the bonds of the district and for no other purpose until such principal and interest have been fully paid.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75373.
  

If the provisions of Section 74056 are complied with in the formation of a district so that all bonds of the district and of any improvement district created therein are payable from assessments levied upon all real property within the district or improvement district, as the case may be, annual assessments for the purposes provided in Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 75350) of this part shall be upon all real property within the district and shall be levied in the manner generally provided in Chapter 1 and this chapter for the levy of assessments upon land only; except that all references to “land” therein, including such references in Sections 75357 and 75358, shall be deemed to refer to “real property.”

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75374.
  

The assessments levied pursuant to this chapter shall be computed and entered on the assessment roll by the county auditor, and if the board of supervisors fails to levy the assessments the county auditor shall do so. Such assessments shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as state and county taxes and when collected shall be paid into the county treasury for the use of the district.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

75375.
  

The provisions of the Revenue and Taxation Code, prescribing the manner of levying and collecting assessments and the duties of the several county officers with respect thereto, are, so far as they are applicable and not in conflict with the specific provisions of this division, hereby adopted and made a part hereof. Such officers shall be liable upon their several official bonds for the faithful discharge of the duties imposed upon them by this division.
