Section 9-702 Procedures for Assessments; Assessments Confirmed.

The Council shall establish procedures by ordinance for the estimated assessment, assessment, and reassessment of benefitted properties. An assessment shall not exceed the apportioned share of actual costs nor exceed the amount of the benefits. Each parcel of land shall be considered benefitted by the local improvement to the full amount of the assessment levied on it. Delays, mistakes, errors or irregularities in any act or proceeding in an improvement, in notices, in entry of assessment or in any related matter shall not prejudice or invalidate any final assessment, but the defect may be corrected by subsequent action. [New sec. Nov. 8, 1966; am. Nov. 3, 1992.]
