After the district has been created and all necessary road right-of-way has been obtained, the County may proceed with the improvement. If considerable design work is necessary, construction may be delayed for a season to allow time for the surveys and engineering. Only after all the project costs are in can the final assessment be determined. A second hearing, with notification similar to the preliminary hearing, at which the Board will sit as a Board of Equalization will determine the final assessment and certify these to the Treasurer for collection.
Before you make any payment, you should wait until after the second hearing and until you receive a notice from the Treasurer of the actual amount of your assessment.
