1. The clerk of the county commission, after such order is made, shall procure a suitable special tax record book and therein charge each tract of land in the district, as shown in the list of lands prepared and filed by the commissioners of the district, with the special tax chargeable against it and the charges as interest, and indicate therein the date each installment becomes payable, and the amount of each installment, and the date each charge as interest becomes payable and the amount thereof.
2. Thereafter he shall make out and deliver to the county collector for collection, not less than thirty days before any installment becomes payable, a separate special tax bill against each tract of land in the district, on which the tax has not been paid in full, as herein provided, for the amount of the installment charged or chargeable against it and so becoming payable and the amount payable as interest with such installment. Each of such special tax bills shall be in favor of such road district, shall be numbered, and shall state the date of the order of the county commission ordering the assessment, and describe, using abbreviations, the tract of land against which it is issued. Each of such special tax bills shall constitute a lien upon the land described therein, for the amount thereof, and all interest and penalties that may accrue thereon and all cost in collecting the same, including a reasonable attorney's fee to be fixed by the county commission and taxed as costs in the action brought to enforce payment; which lien shall be paramount to all other liens except of the state for general state, county, school and road taxes. Each of such special tax bills as are not paid on the day they become payable, shall have added thereto a penalty equal to two percent of the total amount payable thereon, and thereafter a like penalty, on the first day of each month, until paid.
3. The county collector shall receive payments of such special tax bills and keep a record of each payment and of the name of the party making same, and shall cancel such special tax bills as they are paid. Whenever any of such tax bills has been so cancelled by the county collector and is exhibited to the clerk of the county commission, or the county collector reports payment of any such tax bills to the clerk of the county commission, he shall note the payment thereof in such special tax record book.
4. The county collector shall pay to the county treasurer all money collected on said special tax bills and the county treasurer shall give such district credit therefor on a special account kept with said district on account of collections on said tax bills, indicating therein the amount paid as principal, and the amount paid as interest and penalties.
