After each assessment for taxes following the creation of the district, the board
of commissioners shall file with the district board the valuation of assessable property
within the district. The district board shall then determine the amount of funds to be raised by taxation
for the ensuing year in excess of available funds to provide for the payment of the
interest on and the principal of all outstanding general obligation bonds as the same
shall become due and payable, to pay the cost of maintaining, repairing and operating
any water system or sewerage system or both, and to pay all obligations incurred by
the district in the performance of its lawful undertakings and functions.
The district board shall determine the number of cents per one hundred dollars ($100.00)
necessary to raise said amount and certify such rate to the board of commissioners. The board of commissioners in its next annual levy shall include the number of cents
per one hundred dollars ($100.00) certified by the district board in the levy against
all taxable property within the district, which tax shall be collected as other county
taxes are collected, and every month the amount of tax so collected shall be remitted
to the district board and deposited by the district board in a separate account in
a bank in the State of North Carolina. Such levy may include an amount for reimbursing the county for the additional cost
to the county of levying and collecting such taxes, pursuant to such formula as may
be agreed upon by the district board and the board of commissioners, to be deducted
from the collections and stated with each remittance to the district board. The officer or officers having charge or custody of the funds of the district shall
require such bank to furnish security for protection of such deposits as provided
in G.S. 159-31.
