At such meeting, or at any adjournment thereof, the governing body shall hear and
pass upon all such objections to each proposed assessment, if any, and may amend the
proposed assessments as to any lots, pieces or parcel of land, and, by resolution,
levy the same as the special assessments against the lands described in the assessment
roll. The assessments, with accrued interest, shall be levied as a special tax upon the
property included therein, concurrent with general property taxes, and shall be payable
in not more than 20 installments, as the governing body determines. The first installment shall be payable at the time of the first payment of general
property taxes following the adoption of the assessment resolution unless such resolution
was adopted and certified too late to permit its collection at such time. All assessments shall bear interest at such rate as the governing body determines,
not to exceed the maximum rate of interest prescribed by K.S.A. 10-1009, and amendments thereto.
Interest on the assessment between the effective date of the resolution levying the
assessment and the date the first installment is payable shall be added to the first
installment. The interest for one year on all unpaid installments shall be added to each subsequent
installment until paid. All of the installments, together with the interest accrued or to accrue thereon,
may be certified to the county clerk in one instrument at the same time, and such
certification shall be good for all of the installments, and the interest thereon
payable as special taxes. Such assessment shall be collected in the same manner as other taxes of the county
are collected and paid. The owner of any property so assessed, at any time prior to a date which shall be
fixed by the governing body, may pay the whole of the assessment against any lot,
piece or parcel with interest accrued to the date of payment to the county treasurer.
The board of county commissioners and the governing body of any city or school district
or other taxing unit, respectively, shall provide for and pay the amount assessed
against property owned by them as provided by K.S.A. 79-1808, and amendments thereto, or they may pay the amounts so assessed from their general
