Section 9-703 Assessment Lien; Payment.

The docket of City liens is a public writing, and from the date of entry of any assessment, the sum entered is a lien upon the land against which it is entered. Assessment liens shall have priority over all other liens and encumbrances. The sum assessed for a local improvement shall be due and payable from the date of entry upon the lien docket, and if not paid or bonded as provided by law within thirty (30) days from that date, the amount of assessment then shall be delinquent and shall bear interest at the rate fixed by ordinance from the date of assessment. [am. Nov. 3, 1992.]
