At the time of such hearing as provided in RCW 17.04.210, or at such time to which the same may be continued or adjourned, the board of directors
shall proceed to examine expenses incurred by the weed inspector in controlling weeds
on the parcel of land in question, and shall hear such testimony of such other persons
who may have legal interest in the proceedings, and shall enter an order upon its
minutes as to what amount, if any, is properly chargeable against the lands for weed
control. Cost of serving, mailing and posting shall be added to any amount so found to be
due and shall be considered part of the cost of weed control on the land in question. The amount so charged by the directors shall be a tax on the land on which said
work was done after the expiration of ten days from the date of entry of said order,
unless an appeal be taken as in this chapter provided, in which event the same shall
become a tax at the time the amount to be paid shall be determined by the court; and
the county treasurer shall enter the same on the tax rolls against the land for the
current year and collect it, together with penalty and interest, as other taxes are
collected, and when so collected the same shall be paid into the fund for such weed
district: PROVIDED, That a failure to serve, mail or post any of the notices or statements
provided for in this chapter, shall not invalidate said tax, but in case of such failure
the lien of such tax shall be subordinate and inferior to the interests of any mortgagee
to whom notice has not been given in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.
