Assessments shall be made and apportioned in the manner fixed by the resolution of
the governing authorities determining to proceed with the improvement. The owner of any property assessed for an improvement, or any party having an interest
therein, may appear at the time and place fixed for the hearing and determining of
any objections or defense, and object to the proposed assessment against the property
or to the amount thereof. The governing authorities of the municipality shall hear and determine all objections
and protests to the proposed assessment, under such reasonable rules and regulations
as they may adopt. At such meeting, or at any adjournment thereof, the governing authorities may alter,
change or correct any assessment; however, no assessment shall be increased without
notice to the owner of the property. The governing authorities shall, by resolution, approve and confirm all assessments
as finally fixed and adjusted at the said hearing, and said assessments shall, from
the date of such confirmation, constitute a lien upon the respective lots or parcels
of lands and other real property upon which they are levied, superior to all other
liens except those for state and county taxes. All persons who fail to object to the proposed assessments, in the manner herein
provided shall be deemed to have consented to and approved the same. Any property owner aggrieved by the decision of the governing authorities may appeal
to the circuit court.
