74.200 Modification of assessment -- Relevy. When the county judge/executive has confirmed an assessment for the construction of a <br>water system and the assessment has been modified by a court, or for some unforeseen <br>cause it cannot be collected, the commission may modify the assessment as originally <br>confirmed to conform to the judgment of the court and to cover any deficit caused by the <br>order of the county judge/executive or unforeseen occurrence. The relevy shall be made <br>for the additional sum required, in the same ratio as in the original assessment. In any <br>other case where it is ascertained that the amount assessed against the property in the <br>water district is not sufficient to complete the improvements provided for, such deficit <br>may be paid out of current reserve, or the county judge/executive may order a relevy upon <br>the petition of the commission, or any three (3) or more petitioners. The petition must set <br>forth the amount of the deficit, the causes thereof, and the amount necessary to be raised <br>in order to complete the work. The county judge/executive shall give notice of the filing <br>and purpose of the petition and fix a time, not less than ten (10) nor more than twenty <br>(20) days from the giving of the notice, when the petition shall be acted upon. If upon <br>hearing the county judge/executive finds that the relevy asked for in the petition is <br>necessary in order to complete the work, the county judge/executive shall direct such <br>relevy to be made by the commission. The relevy shall be made in the same ratio as the <br>original assessment was made and shall be collected in the same way. Effective: June 17, 1978 <br>History: Amended 1978 Ky.
