semiannual due dates next succeeding the date of the order.



9486.  The board may also in the order fix and determine upon such
additional sum as the board deems proper to be collected to provide a
sinking fund for the retirement of bonds on or before maturity.



9487.  Immediately upon making the order the board shall prepare in

lands covered by the assessment, a statement of the amount of the
assessment necessary to be collected for the year to pay the
principal and interest of the bonds falling due.

maturity.



9490.  The amount necessary to pay the interest and principal, or
either, falling due, together with the additional 15 per cent of that
amount and the amount for sinking fund purposes, shall constitute
the amount to be collected and paid into the bond fund and shall be
known as the installment for bonds.



9491.  Unless otherwise determined by the board or by an order
entered in its minutes, a copy of which duly certified shall be
transmitted to the county treasurer of each of the counties wherein
are situated any of the lands covered by the assessment, the
installment for bonds shall be payable in two equal portions, the
first of which shall be due and payable to the county treasurers,
respectively, on the third Monday in October and is delinquent on the
first Monday in December next thereafter at 6 o'clock p.m. and the
remaining portion may be paid at any time before the last Monday in
April next thereafter at 6 o'clock p.m. at which time the installment
is delinquent.

bonds, the board shall furnish to the county treasurer of each county

   (a) The reference number of each tract of land assessed.
   (b) The name of the owner to whom assessed, as stated in the
original assessment list.

   (b) The word "sold" with date of sale, in case of sales for

is made.



9495.  The county treasurer shall make a report to the board as
often as requested of all entries made by him on the collection list.



9496.  When either portion of any installment for bonds becomes
delinquent, a penalty of one dollar ($1) together with 20 per cent of
the amount of the installment on each tract delinquent, shall be
added thereto and collected for the use of the bond fund of the
assessment.



9497.  All money collected by the several county treasurers upon the
installment for bonds or for the penalty thereon in case of
delinquency shall, within 30 days after collection, be paid over to
the State Treasurer and credited to the bond fund of the assessment.
